A new rumor has surfaced courtesy of Cinelinx. This one is about a remake of beloved Star Wars classic Knights of the Old Republic. The rumor also states that EA has “found their groove with the Star Wars license”, as they have many projects tied to it in the works. You can check out the rumor below.
According to one, the previously mentioned Knights of the Old Republic remake is back in development. My other source added to that saying they felt it wasn’t so much a remake, but a “sequel” of sorts. It would be a Knights of the Old Republicproject that would integrate elements from the first two games in order to bring certain things into the current Star Warscanon. Not necessarily a remake, so much as a re-imagining.
Considering the wealth of material from KOTOR that has already been reintroduced to the canon, this doesn’t seem like it’d be a big stretch to make it work. Unfortunately, that’s about all the details I have right now on this project. So it seems like the original remake has made a return in some form and being retooled.
I’ve heard EA has a BUNCH of Star Warsprojects in various stages of work at this point. From Jedi: Fallen Order sequels, the Project Luminous tie-in, to something on the Switch, there’s a lot going on. From what I’m hearing, it really sounds like EA has found their groove with the Star Warslicense. Unfortunately, I DON’T know about timing on any of these, but I’m digging and hoping to have fresh updates soon. E3 could bring some big reveals, but there’s also a chance they do their own “Star Wars Event” reveal for some of the stuff they’re working on.
Time will tell, but this was a pleasant surprise to get an update on as I’d essentially chalked up this previous scoop as a loss.
