Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic Remake Confirmed to be Underway, Embracer Group Reports

Embracer Group, a renowned video game company, has recently stirred the gaming world with the announcement that the Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic (KOTOR) remake is still under development. KOTOR, a game that holds a mythical status in the realm of gaming similar to that of Half-Life 3, has been the subject of rumors and speculation for years. However, as time has passed, the likelihood of the game’s release has seemed increasingly uncertain. Despite this, the recent report by Embracer Group suggests that the project is very much alive, even if the company has refrained from making official statements about it​.

Interestingly, the CEO of Embracer Group was recently asked about the KOTOR remake but provided no response. The timing is noteworthy as the twenty-year anniversary of Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic is only two months away. This milestone could provide the perfect occasion for the reveal of the much-anticipated project​.

The news of the KOTOR remake’s ongoing development comes from the year-end report published by the Embracer Group. The report, current as of May 24, 2023, details all games that have been released and are in development. The report includes several titles like Tomb Raider (Final Title TBC), Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine II, Remnant 2, Ride 5, and of course, the Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic – Remake​.

According to the report, the in-development KOTOR remake will be available on PC and PlayStation 5 platforms. The development of this anticipated remake is being led by an internal studio. However, further details are scant in the report​​.

For those interested in the video game industry, the Embracer Group report is a recommended read. In addition to the news about the KOTOR remake, the report provides insightful information about the performance of Embracer and all its associated subsidiaries. It also offers a comprehensive overview of the state of various gaming markets around the world​​.

The KOTOR remake has been a long-awaited dream for many Star Wars and RPG fans. With the confirmation of its continued development, the gaming community eagerly awaits further updates on the project. Will the twenty-year anniversary of the original game bring a reveal? Only time will tell.
