The game Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic is in jeopardy. The remake of the classic 2003 game has been “delayed indefinitely” due to development issues. According to Bloomberg, developer Aspyr Media fired the game’s art director and design director this month.
According to the report, the game’s design director, Brad Prince, and the art director, Jason Minor, were both fired after a demo was completed. The demo was created to allow its production partners, Lucasfilm and Sony, to see the title’s progress. However, the Aspyr studio heads informed staff that the demo did not meet internal expectations, that the two directors had been fired, and that work on the game had been halted.
While the Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic remake was supposed to be released in 2022, it now appears that this will not happen. The remake has been “indefinitely postponed,” and the title’s fate is unknown. If the project is restarted, a 2025 release date may be more attainable.
