Aspyr Media, Responsbile for Star Wars Ports & Remasters, is Working on the New KOTOR

Aspyr Media, a Texas-based studio responsible for porting Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic and remastering several Star Wars games, is working on the rumoured upcoming Knights of the Old Republic.

Star Wars insider Bespin Bulletin spilt the beans on his B.O.B. The Podcast.

We’ll ‘never guess’ who the studio is that’s making this game.

Amongst my digging, I heard there is a Knights of the Old Republic project in development somewhere.

I talked to a couple of people, and I also found out that Jason Schreier said that it’s not with EA, and we’ll ‘never guess’ who the studio is that’s making this game.

Historically speaking, Knights of the Old Republic was developed by BioWare and, until now, there were no reports of Knights of the Old Republic being developed at BioWare. Jason Schreier's comment at Resetera confirmed the same, but also mentioned the fact a Knights of the Old Republic is, in fact, in development, at another studio.

This is where Aspyr Media steps in. Aspyr is actively recruiting devs for an unannounced AAA RPG, running on Unreal Engine 4. Furthermore, all the senior-level positions, such as Principal Narrative Designer, Art Director, Senior Game Designer, and Cinematic Lead among others are occupied by former BioWare employees. Not only that, but all these developers worked on the original Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic.

According to insider leaks, the KOTOR game at Aspyr Media could either be a remake or a reimagining of the first part of the series. Since the original game is already about two decades old, a reimagining of the first part of the series could feel like a totally new series for both the veterans and those who never had the chance to play the original games.
