The remake of Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic may be delayed indefinitely, following a development standstill at studio Aspyr Media.
According to Bloomberg, Aspyr Media abruptly fired art director Jason Minor and design director Brad Prince, who were working on the KOTOR remake. In follow-up meetings with the team at large, senior managers told employees that the project had been put on hold; meanwhile, the studio will be looking for new contracts.
On LinkedIn, both Minor and Prince list their employment at Aspyr Media ending in July 2022, with Minor also stating that he is “open for work.” As of the publication date of this article, LinkedIn does not provide further details.
In May 2022, the Saber Interactive studio teamed up with Aspyr Media to develop the new version of KOTOR. According to the Bloomberg report, Aspyr Media employees now believe that Saber Interactive can take over the project entirely as Aspyr moves on to other opportunities.
GameSpot has reached out to Aspyr Media to confirm the delay of the KOTOR Remake.
Revealed in September 2021, the KOTOR remake has been described as a “full remake” by Aspyr Media. The game is scheduled to release on PS5 and PC.
