For fans of the beloved 2003 RPG Knights of the Old Republic, the long-awaited remake has been a topic of speculation for quite some time. The status of this highly anticipated project has been up in the air until recently, when some positive news emerged.

In a recent interview with IGN, Saber Interactive CEO Matthew Karch confirmed that the Knights of the Old Republic remake is still in active development. He assured fans that the game is "alive and well" and that the team is dedicated to surpassing consumer expectations.

Formerly under the Embracer Group umbrella, Saber Interactive recently parted ways with the parent company and retained control of the KOTOR remake. While concrete details about the current stage of development are scarce, it's reassuring to know that the project is moving forward.


Some may question the focus on reviving a game that is two decades old in the era of remakes and remasters. However, a quick look at the original Knights of the Old Republic's accolades sheds light on its significance. With a stellar Metacritic score of 94 out of 100, the game has garnered widespread acclaim for its innovative gameplay and captivating story.

Originally developed by BioWare, the minds behind the acclaimed Baldur’s Gate series, Knights of the Old Republic quickly solidified its status as a monumental RPG in gaming history. Despite facing production setbacks and a change in development leadership, the remake appears to be steadily progressing.

While specifics about the release date or gameplay features remain elusive, the confirmation of ongoing development offers a glimmer of hope for fans eagerly awaiting the revival of this beloved title.
