A new rumor is claiming the Star Wars: KOTOR remake has switched developers amidst its other previous rumor on an indefinite delay.
The new rumor (via Bloomberg) claims a ‘person familiar with the change’ notes the Star Wars: KOTOR remake has switched developers to one of Saber Interactive’s studios based in eastern Europe.
Aspyr was reportedly working on the game for over 2 years, but the game was “on pause’ back in July while they tried to decide on their next project. The report also said rumors of Saber Interactive taking over spread quickly in the studio, exacerbating things.
This is rumor for the KOTOR remake possibly holds weight considering both Aspyr Media and Saber Interactive are owned by the behemoth Embracer Group, who quietly slipped in a note in their latest purchase of a big chunk of companies. Its earnings report curiously mentioned one of their “AAA projects” has actually switched developers.
“One of the Group’s AAA projects has transitioned to another studio within the Group,” the report said. “This was done to ensure the quality bar is where we need it to be for the title. We are not expecting any material delays for the title based on this transition.”
The new remake was announced under Sony Interactive Entertainment and Lucasfilm Games, with the game being made by Aspyr Media and supposedly only coming to PlayStation 5.
