Star Wars KOTOR Remake PS5

The Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic Remake for PlayStation 5 and PC will have updates to share "in the next several months", it's been confirmed. Speaking during the Q4 Embracer Group report (the owner of developer Aspyr Media), board member Matthew Karch explained how Saber Interactive is also lending a hand with development as the game is "basically" being remade from scratch.

Karch said (transcribed by Push Square): "Aspyr has gone full in to make this the best game that they can make. When we acquired Aspyr, we knew from the start that they would require our assistance. Saber has tremendous expertise in creating these types of products. We've done it on Halo — on multiple Halo products — we've done it on other titles that we've remastered over on other platforms."

He then adds: "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."

The Saber Interactive CEO also alludes to the deal Sony has made for the remake, securing it as a PS5 console exclusive. If Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic Remake is indeed set for a reveal in the coming months, then either June's Summer Game Fest Showcase or a rumoured Sony event are probably the two likeliest places for it to appear. Besides the teaser trailer from Sony's September 2021 showcase, no other details have been shared.
