Embracer Group just left a small glimmer of hope for all the Star Wars fans still holding out hope the PS5-exclusive remake of Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic (KOTOR) is still in development.
Last week, the CEO of Embracer Group was asked about the status of the KOTOR project but he chose to remain silent. This was in the midst of rumors that Embracer Group had already given up on getting the game out due to still-unnamed issues.
The deafening silence, along with the lack of news regarding the game, led many to believe that the ambitious remake is no longer happening.
Fortunately, we just spotted evidence that Embracer Group is still working on the game.
The KOTOR remake, which has been in development for at least three years, has had a rocky journey so far. After being part of the rumor mill for at least a year, the game was part of the September 2021 PlayStation Showcase, raising the hopes of long-time Star Wars fans.
Unfortunately, the lack of any substantial updates is a worrying sign for a game based on a property that's seen plenty of projects that had been force pushed all the way down to the pits of development hell.
This year should've been the perfect time to reveal more news about the KOTOR Remake as the iconic title celebrates its 20th anniversary in July.
Are we going to hear more about the KOTOR Remake later this year? We certainly hope so!
But, on the off chance that we don't, Star Wars fans don't have to worry about when they'll be able to venture into a galaxy far, far away next. Aside from Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, which recently topped the sales charts, Ubisoft might officially unveil its open-world Star Wars project at the Ubisoft Forward showcase on June 12. Finally, Skydance New Media and Respawn Entertainment are working on their own Star Wars titles as well.
