The Knights Of The Old Republic Remake Game Is Dead

Add yet another entry on the list of cancelled or “forever on hold” Star Wars projects. According to an insider report the KOTOR remake is dead. It’s not currently worked on. Which is basically the same. And at the recent Embracer Group earnings presentation from last Thursday the CEO refused to make any comment when he was asked about how he feels about the KOTOR remake. Rumors about the project being on indefinite hold had swirled around previously, allegedly Lucasfilm was not happy with the quality of the work presented, game development was switched to another studio belonging to the Embracer Group, none of that seems to have helped the project.

I feel a KOTOR remake could have been good, of course it could also been a disaster, especially if had been reimagined for “modern audiences”. They had hired new writers (some of which did not really inspire fans with any confidence) which meant that the story could have changed, or at least the dialogue. Either way, it seems the remake will no longer happen.

Why is it so difficult for Star Wars projects to actually get made? Would you still like to get a proper KOTOR remake? Or at least a remaster? To make the game enjoyable for newer fans who would not be happy about the (for 2023) bad graphics, clunky combat and otherwise archaic gameplay mechanics?

“Outlaws”, the open world Star Wars game developed by Ubisoft, is still on track fortunately, and definitely not cancelled, however, as things look the game may get delayed, tentative original release date was “early 2024”, latest reports claim a release after April 2024 in Ubisoft’s new fiscal year is more like it. So Star Wars fans will at least get one new game in the not too distant future. But anyone who hoped to be Revan again in a much improved KOTOR is out of luck.

We will not see them again any time soon
