The state of the Knights of the Old Republic remake is still not certain

Is it, or is it not, still happening?

As of now, Saber Interactive has officially parted ways with parent company Embracer Group. The question that’s going to be on a lot of people’s lips is: why are you so handsome? No, I mean…”is the remake of Knights of the Old Republic still happening?” That’s a much more sensible question.

The truth is, we still can’t say for certain. However, Saber’s Chief Creative Officer, Tim Willits (as noted by Eurogamer), recently posted on Twitter/X, confirming that the studio is still working on a number of projects. These include Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine 2, John Carpenter’s Toxic Commando, and Jurassic Park: Survival.

There’s no mention of the elusive KOTOR remake. Whether this is covered in the “working on a number of titles” bit of Willits’ statement is not clear. The fact it’s not mentioned at all could be a bad sign.

However, dot-dot-dot

With the COO of Saber Interactive neither confirming nor denying the game’s existence, it’s hard to walk away with a clear understanding of what’s happening with Knights of the Old Republic. But there may be a slight glimmer of hope.

According to a notable Bloomberg report by Jason Schreier, the remake is still going ahead. While trying to make sense of Embracer’s “divestment” of the studio – in which he refers to the deal as being “a little misleading” – user @WhatsAkeo asks whether KOTOR is still in the pipeline.

The response is simply: “Yes that’s going with Saber.” Further questioning from user @VinderTomat prompts Schreier to assume that the “previously unannounced AAA game based on a major license” noted in the recent Embracer Group press release must be in reference to the remake. Schreier adds: “It’s the only game that fits.”

So, there you have it, folks. We still don’t know whether Knights…is making a comeback. Willits hasn’t exactly denied it’s still in development, but a reputable journalist seems confident says it is.
