Aspyr Is Reportedly Working On A Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic Remake

The rumors of a Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic remake have seemingly been confirmed by a Bloomberg reporter.

Rumors of a Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic remake have swirled for years. Known as one of the best role-playing games of its generation, it effectively set the bar for Star Wars games going forward. Since few other titles set in the same universe have matched the 2003 release, fans have desperately wanted a remake or remaster. Development on this has seemingly been confirmed by Bloomberg reporter Jason Schreier.

Mr. Schreier had seemingly teased this when responding to a Reset Era post focused on Aspyr Media's recent acquisition by the Embracer Group. Speculation in the comments section speculated that Aspyr - which is known for porting several Star Wars titles - was working on a AAA game set in the Star Wars universe.

Since the studio is made up of Bioware veterans who may have been with the studio during KOTOR's development, the rumors seemed to have some weight. However, Mr. Scheier didn't say much beyond this. Speaking with MinnMax's Ben Hanson, he said that "there is something there" in the rumors. However, it added that Electronic Arts definitely wasn't working on the game. After a little bit of prodding, Mr. Scheier put it bluntly:

"I've basically confirmed that Aspyr, which is the company that has ported a bunch of KOTOR games, is working on a remake."

Since there's no official confirmation, it's worth taking the above with a few grains of salt. After all, speculation about a Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic remake have been around for years, if not over a decade. Since Jason Schreier didn't - or couldn't - elaborate on what he knew may be an indication tha there isn't much too it.

With the number of remakes and remasters that have come out recently, however, it wouldn't be too much of a surprise if Aspyr Media really is working on a Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic remake.
