Ever since the initial reveal, many were excited to see what the remake of Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic might be like. It seemed like they might have to wait a little longer on an update, as during the Q4 report by Embracer Group, which owns the developers Aspyr Media, they revealed that the game is being remade “from scratch.” While discussing the game and the Playstation exclusive deal, board member Matthew Karch talked about the game’s size and that we’ll probably get an updated “in the next several months.”
We’re fully confident that the game is going to be fantastic but it’s a massive, massive product and massive products require a lot of effort and a lot of time to make good. And especially when you’re talking about a game already old — very old — we’ve basically had to remake that game from scratch. I would say in the next several months you’ll be hearing more from us about it.Matthew Karch
It does sound like the game has become a “massive,” as Karch put it, undertaking for Aspyr. It seems Saber Interactive is also involved with the production. There’s a lot of excitement for what the project might bring, especially with how beloved the Knights of the Old Republic franchise is. There have been hints that the game might not replicate the gameplay from the original but take a very different approach, but so far we only got a teaser but not actual gameplay. Here’s hoping we may get at least a glimpse of what the new version will play like.
