According to Bloomberg's Jason Schreier, who's known for his insider information, the Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic Remake has been put on hold indefinitely due to development problems. Two of the game's directors — Brad Prince and Jason Minor — were fired after Aspyr presented a demo of the title to Lucasfilm and Disney on June 30, 2022. Schreier added that staff were shocked because they felt excited for the demo they had created, so the firings came as a surprise. Aspyr has put a lot of funding into the project and it's already been in development for three years.
Luckily, the game hasn't been canceled. We'll keep you posted as soon as we know more. There was some indication that that Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic Remake was going to be a timed exclusive that would eventually make its way to Xbox Series X|S. However, given this news, we'll have to wait and see if it makes its way to PC and PlayStation 5.
