Embracer Group indirectly confirmed that the upcoming remake Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic changed developers.
Embracer noted in its financial report that one of her upcoming AAA titles was transferred from one internal studio to another in order to “ensure that the title needed the bar of quality.”
The company did not disclose the name of the project, but it is assumed that we are talking about a remake of KoTOR. Embracer only indicated that it does not expect significant delays in the release due to a change in developer.
At the announcement in September last year, it was announced that the remastered Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic for PlayStation 5 and PC is being created by Aspyr, however, already in May, she suddenly joined the project Saber Interactiveand in July, Bloomberg sources spoke of problems with the project. Allegedly, the development of the remake was put on hold after the unsatisfactory results of showing a vertical cut to partners from Lucasfilm and Sony Interactive Entertainment, and design director Brad Prince and art director Jason Minor were fired.
There have been no official comments from Embracer about this.
