Knights of the Old Republic remake is “alive and well”, says Saber CEO

Knights of the Old Republic remake

Following the news that Saber Interactive is splitting from Embracer Group, many fans wondered what fate came upon their long-awaited Knights of the Old Republic remake.

It’s been several years since the Knights of the Old Republic remake was announced with not much information beyond “it exists.” Since then the project has reportedly seen numerous delays and even changed its developer from Aspyr Media to Saber Interactive.

The game’s prolonged development cycle and the changing of hands with who is actually making and funding the project combined with the Embracer Group split led many to assume it was cancelled. Saber Interactive has finally confirmed the game still exists.

“It’s clear and it’s obivous that we’re working on this,”  Saber Interactive CEO Matthew Karch said (via IGN). “It’s been in the press numerous times. What I will say is that the game is alive and well, and we’re dedicated to making sure we exceed consumer expectations.”

While the team confirmed the remake is still in the works, we got no other information like how far along its development truly is or if it’s still a PlayStation 5 console exclusive, as it was when first announced.

Saber Interactive is splitting from Embracer Group via an external investor’s support in a $247 million deal, bringing with them most of their internal studios and various projects, like the KOTOR remake. The new deal is valued at less than half of what Embracer bought the company for years ago.
