The Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic may be delayed indefinitely, after a development hiatus at Aspyr Media studio.
According to Bloomberg, Aspyr Media abruptly fired Artistic Director Jason Minor and Design Director Brad Prince, both of whom were working on a remake of KOTOR. In follow-up meetings with the team as a whole, senior officials told staff that the project had been put on hold — in the meantime, the studio would seek and pursue new contracts.
On LinkedIn, both Minor and Prince list their work at Aspyr Media which ended in July 2022, with Minor also stating that it is “open for business.” As of this article’s publication, LinkedIn does not provide further details.
In May 2022, studio Saber Interactive joined forces with Aspyr Media in developing a remake of KOTOR. According to a Bloomberg report, employees at Aspyr Media now believe Saber Interactive may take over the entire project while Aspyr moves on to other opportunities.
GameSpot has reached out to Aspyr Media to confirm the delay in the release of the new KOTOR.
The remake of KOTOR was revealed in September 2021 as a “complete remake” by Aspyr Media. The game is slated to release on PS5 and PC.
