Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic Remake is Reportedly Indefinitely Delayed

Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic Remake, which was announced to be in development by the Austin, Texas-based Aspyr Media last September, is indefinitely delayed according to a report from Jason Schreier at Bloomberg. The report states that this comes after two directors on the project were let go, following a poor review of an internal demo late last month. Additionally, it's claimed that development has been paused as the studio determines how best to proceed with the project.

The remake was announced last year in September during the PlayStation Showcase 2021, targeting PlayStation 5 and PC with a short teaser trailer. No release window was set at the time. With multiple directors now having left the project, and with the game's development paused, it's uncertain what the state of the game might be if or when it's eventually fully revealed.

The remake, which pledged to recreate the 2003 Xbox and PC Bioware classic, was to follow a line of additional releases in the sub-series over the years - including the sequel Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords, and the ongoing The Old Republic MMORPG. While there have been multiple ports of earlier entries in the series across the years, even as recently as last month, KOTOR's remake was poised to be the first truly new release for the franchise in over a decade.
