There are a lot of contenders for the crown relating to the best Star Wars games, like Empire at War, Stellaris, and Civilization 6. But with apologies to Joe’s now-venerable gag in regards to the best interactive adventures within the galaxy far, far-off, the precise best Star Wars game is Knights of the Old Republic, and rumours of a remake have simply gotten a lot extra stable.
These rumours return a few months. In a ResetEra thread speculating on a potential KOTOR remake, game industry insider Jason Schreier suggested that “nobody is going to guess” the developer of such a challenge accurately. And as VGC reported in January, Star Wars insider Bespin Bulletin backed up the concept a Knights of the Old Republic challenge is in improvement.
Asked in regards to the KOTOR in a MinnMax interview this week, Schreier confirms that “there is something there. It’s real.” Later within the interview, Schreier additionally says that Aspyr is the studio behind this remake. Aspyr has predominantly been often known as a port home, and has dealt with Mac and cell variations of KOTOR prior to now, in addition to newer console variations of basic Star Wars titles together with Episode I – Racer, Jedi Academy, and Republic Commando.
You can see the interview for your self under, with the related bits on the 2:31 and 58:30 marks.
The factor Schreier’s feedback don’t actually handle is the scope of this reimagined KOTOR – is it really a full remake, or extra of a limited-scope remaster? Either method, the brand new Lucasfilm Games initiative seems to be paying dividends already, with an open-world Star Wars game in development at Ubisoft, and an obvious willingness to revisit among the most beloved entries within the previous canon. And actually, a Knights of the High Republic-themed follow-up wouldn’t be so unhealthy, both.
