Development Of Star Wars: Knights Of The Old Republic Remake Reportedly Dead

"This game is not being worked on right now... at any studio" says Giant Bomb's Jeff Grubb

Even though Embracer Group CEO Lars Wingefors won’t say anything “headline” worthy of the Star Wars: Knights Of The Old Republic Remake‘s current status, Giant Bomb’s Jeff Grubb spills the tea himself, but this may not be too surprising for anyone who has been following this story because the Star Wars: Knights Of The Old Republic Remake at this point is reportedly not in active development, according to Grubb via his sources.

“I just want to clear it up; this game is not being worked on right now. Just full stop. This game is not being worked on in any way at any studio. Just to 100 percent confirm it, this game is not being worked on right now,” Grubb said on a Giant Bomb livestream.

Grubb revealed what’s going on with the remake project during today’s episode of Game Mess Mornings at the 31-and-a-half-minute mark on the topic, stating that no one is working on the 2021-announced title. This updated status comes after Saber Interactive took over the project from developer Aspyr Media, and it was later delayed indefinitely. While on the topic of the game, the Embracer Boss non-commented yesterday, stating that “anything I say to this becomes a headline, so that is my only comment,” according to IGN.

Lately, PlayStation, a co-publisher of the Star Wars: Knights Of The Old Republic Remake, has been scrubbing the initial announcement trailer off social media and YouTube, which the company states was due to taking the action to “delist assets with licensed music when the licenses expire.” Grubb believes Sony is making the moves to separate itself from the Star Wars: Knights Of The Old Republic Remake and doesn’t want anything to do with it while adding for the future of the remake, Disney/LucasFilms may need to step in.

“The only reality of this game getting made is if Lucasfilm completely takes it over and does all the work to spin it back up. No way this game ever happens. That’s my opinion right now,” Grubb added.
