Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic Remake

The fate of Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic – Remake has been in doubt for a long time. First announced in 2021, it was reported just a few months later that the game’s development had been paused indefinitely, with Saber Interactive allegedly taking over production. What followed was persistent radio silence from all parties involved, and though there were some claims that the remake had been cancelled entirely, it was reported last November that Saber was still working on it.

A little over a couple of weeks ago, it was announced that Saber Interactive had split from parent company Embracer Group and bought back its independence for $247 million, with the companies confirming at the time that one of the projects that Saber was taking with it was a “previously announced AAA game based on a major license”. It was widely speculated (and claimed in reports) that that title was the KOTOR remake, and Saber has now officially confirmed that.

In an interview with IGN, Saber Interactive CEO Matthew Karch provided the first official confirmation to date that the developer is indeed at work on Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic – Remake. Karch did not provide details on the exact status of the project, but confirmed that it’s “alive and well”, and that Saber is committed to try and “exceed consumer expectations.”

“It’s clear and it’s obvious that we’re working on this,” Karch said. “It’s been in the press numerous times. What I will say is that the game is alive and well, and we’re dedicated to making sure we exceed consumer expectations.”

It remains to be seen how long it will be before Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic – Remake is publicly shown off again, given the lack of clarity on its current state behind-the-scenes. Last month, however, Embracer Group – which was confirmed to be still working with Saber on the aforementioned previously-announced licensed AAA title – suggested that the game still has “some time left” until launch.

Following its split with Embracer Group, Saber Interactive also confirmed that development is continuing on Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine 2, Jurassic Park: Survival, and John Carpenter’s Toxic Commando.
