Star Wars Kotor Remake Release Date: What We Know So Far

According to a recent tweet from Scheier, the Star Wars KOTOR remake won't be released this year.

During September's PlayStation Showcase, Sony revealed that a KOTOR remake is in the works. While the trailer showed mostly smoke, it did feature a hooded figure with a red lightsaber that illuminated Darth Revan's helmet. While Sony did not provide a specific release window, it is likely a few years away.

As the Star Wars KOTOR remake's developer, Saber Interactive, has confirmed, we won't be seeing this title this year. Instead, we should look for it in 2024 or 2023 at the earliest. 

Star Wars Kotor Remake Release Date: 2024

Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic will be receiving a remake. Saber Interactive in Eastern Europe is currently handling its development. Despite the move to Eastern Europe, the release date for KOTOR is still uncertain. If the remake goes ahead, it will likely be in 2024.

According to a recent tweet from Scheier, the Star Wars KOTOR remake won't be released this year. The release date is more likely to be 2024, although some media outlets have said that the 2024 release date is just wishful thinking. In any case, the developer is being very confident in this report, and the timeframe may be a few years off.

Aspyr Media

The release date for the Star Wars: Kotor remake has not been officially announced, but it has been in the works for quite some time. Developer Aspyr Media has been behind some successful porting projects, including Star Wars: The Force Unleashed for the Nintendo Switch. Whether they can manage to deliver the game by 2022 is a question that remains unanswered.

The development of the game was slowed by the departure of Aspyr's art director and design director. According to Bloomberg, Aspyr executives told their staff that the vertical slice demo was not what they expected and that the project would be put on hold until they could deliver a quality demo.

Saber Interactive

As the Star Wars KOTOR remake's developer, Saber Interactive, has confirmed, we won't be seeing this title this year. Instead, we should look for it in 2024 or 2023 at the earliest. The company will not be able to release two games a year, but it will likely be two or three games a year.

The KOTOR remake is in the works, but development has been delayed for a while. First, Aspyr decided to fire the design and art director. The decision confused Lucasfilm and Sony, who were concerned about the game's progress. As a result, the developer decided to take a break from the project. Now, Aspyr says that a "more realistic" release date is 2025.

Development studio

A report in the Embracer stated that Saber Interactive is currently working on the Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic remake. The new development studio has been helping Aspyr with the project since earlier this year. It is unclear if this shift will cause material delays for the game.

Sony confirmed the project, showing a trailer during the PlayStation Showcase 2021 in September. The trailer shows a hooded figure holding a red lightsaber that illuminates Darth Revan's helmet. However, the trailer did not mention a release date. Considering that the game is more than 20 years away from being released, that could indicate a long wait for the game.
