Great news for Star Wars gaming fans - the long-awaited Knights of the Old Republic remake is still in development! Despite recent business dealings involving Saber Interactive, the remake is still underway, although it seems like it won't be released in the next 12 months.

Recently, Embracer Group announced plans to sell off a significant part of Saber Interactive, fueling speculation about the future of the KotOR remake project. According to Jason Schreier of Bloomberg, the game is "going with Saber," suggesting that the development studio will play a crucial role in bringing this iconic Star Wars title back to life.

Embracer Group will retain Aspyr Media, the studio initially tasked with developing the KotOR remake. However, with the transfer of the project to Saber Interactive, the future of the game remains uncertain until the deal is finalized.

During a recent conference call discussing the deal, Embracer CEO Lars Wingefors hinted at the complexity of the AAA project, stating, "that kind of game needs some deep love and respect," implying that a longer development timeline may be necessary to deliver a high-quality experience.

Originally announced as a timed PS5 console exclusive, the KotOR remake is a collaboration between Aspyr, Lucasfilm Games, and Sony Interactive Entertainment. The game's development has faced challenges in recent years, with reports of delays and studio shakeups raising questions about its eventual release.

Despite these setbacks, the gaming community remains eagerly anticipating the return of the beloved Star Wars franchise in the form of the Knights of the Old Republic remake. Stay tuned for more updates as the development continues!
