The Knights of the Old Republic Remake may have been cancelled

Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic is a fan favourite title and we've been hoping for a return to the KOTOR series for a long time now. It looked like we were finally going to get exactly that when Knights of the Old Republic Remake was announced back in 2021. However, it would appear that the game may have been quietly cancelled. 

The Knights of the Old Republic Remake was announced by Aspyr with a short teaser trailer during the PlayStation Showcase in 2021. In 2022, it was confirmed that Aspyr is no longer leading development on the project, with Embracer Group moving it over to Saber Interactive. Now amidst restructuring efforts and lay-offs at Embracer Group's owned studios, it would seem that the KOTOR remake has now been cancelled.

Fans spotted that the original teaser trailer, as well as social media posts advertising the game, have been quietly hidden from public view this week. Neither Sony nor Embracer Group have issued a statement yet but with the remake's announcement seemingly being wiped from the web, rumours of the game's cancellation are now circulating.

The KOTOR Remake was already having a somewhat troubled development. While Aspyr was chosen to lead the project due to past experience working on versions of the KOTOR titles, there was an apparent disagreement somewhere along the way, leading to Aspyr being booted off of the remake, transferring the development over to Saber Interactive.

Not helping matters is Embracer's current financial situation, which has taken an ugly turn this year, leading to lots of lay-offs and some studio closures.

KitGuru Says: A KOTOR Remake should have been a homerun but the situation is not looking good at this point in time. If this current version of the Remake is cancelled, then we do hope that Disney finds another studio to take on the project.
