Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic PS5 Remake development on hold
The remake of the fan favorite from developer Aspyr Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic for PlayStation 5 has been “delayed indefinitely” according to a Bloomberg report. The news comes after the studio reportedly fired two directors and brought in another studio to help work on the project.
According to Bloomberg, design director Brad Prince and art director Jason Minor were both fired from Aspyr after the studio previewed gameplay Knights of the Old Republic Remake to Lucasfilm and Sony. Aspyr’s studio head then informed the staff that the project was on pause and the gameplay wasn’t what they wanted it to be. Bloomberg reported that the remake may not arrive until 2025.
Aspyr hasn’t shared an official release window for his remake of Knights of the Old Republicand has not officially announced a delay.
The reissue of Knights of the Old Republic was first announced in September last year. While Aspyr is the developer behind the game, the studio was bought last year by Embracer Group, a holding company with significant investments in several studios including Saber Interactive, which is now supporting development of the new one Knights of the Old Republic.
Polygon has reached out to representatives from Aspyr and Lucasfilm Games for comment and will update this post if they respond.
