A new Star Wars game is always very interesting for fans of the Star Wars series, and it seems that a remake of a great classic is on the horizon, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic.
In an interview with YouTube channel MinnMax this week, the well-known Bloomberg reporter Jason Schreier said that a remake of Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic is in development at Aspyr Media.
“I’ve basically confirmed that Aspyr, which is the company that has ported a bunch of KOTOR games, is working on a remake,” Schreier said during the interview visible at the bottom of the news.
The first rumors about a remake of Star Wars: KOTOR date back to a few months ago, when Schreier himself had said that “we’ll ‘never guess’” correctly the developer of such a project.
Reportedly, the project will not be in charge of EA, but Aspyr Media is currently handling the remake. It should be remembered that this studio is already familiar with the game because in 2013 it worked on the update of the mobile version of KOTOR, although recently we have also heard rumors that BioWare is the one that will work on the renewed version.
Aspyr is known as a port company, and has previously worked on the Mac and mobile versions of KOTOR, as well as console versions of classic Star Wars titles, including Episode I – Racer, Jedi Academy, and Republic Commando.
Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic has a plot set about 4000 years before the formation of the Galactic Empire when Darth Malak launched the attack on the Old Republic. In this way, players control a Jedi who travels the galaxy as he tries to defeat the Sith, and during his travels, he forms a crew to help him on his journey.
