One of the biggest reveals from the mighty PlayStation Showcase 2021 had to be none other than the confirmation of the Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic Remake.
Easily one of the most requested remakes ever, this timed PS5 console exclusive is coming from Aspyr Media, who have mastered many Star Wars classics, but this one is a completely different beast. You can’t get this one wrong unless you want the Star Wars fanbase to descend upon you.
That’s why Saber Interactive, developers of such titles as World War Z and many other games. will be giving Aspyr a hand in the Force to help finish the mighty project.
During the Embracer Group Q4 earnings report (they own both Aspyr and Saber), Matthew Karch, Saber Interactive’s CEO revealed that his team is helping with the game and that we should hear more news about it in the upcoming months!
Aspyr has gone full in to make this the best game that they can make. When we acquired Aspyr, we knew from the start that they would require our assistance. Saber has tremendous expertise in creating these types of products. We’ve done it on Halo — on multiple Halo products — we’ve done it on other titles that we’ve remastered over on other platforms.
We’re fully confident that the game is going to be fantastic but it’s a massive, massive product and massive products require a lot of effort and a lot of time to make good. And especially when you’re talking about a game already old — very old — we’ve basically had to remake that game from scratch. I would say in the next several months you’ll be hearing more from us about it.
This does add fuel to the fire that Sony (has to!) has plans for an upcoming event sometime before the end of the year to announce their Fall lineup/hype major 2023 releases.
