Publisher has finally given Star Wars: Knights of The Old Republic remake its approval.
At first, fans don’t seem sure whether to feel pleased or dismayed over the latest update on Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic remake. Since seeing its trailer debut months ago, people have eagerly anticipated news about its imminent arrival and have eagerly anticipated any information regarding release details for it.
Well, at last there has been some form of update. When asked by press about production status of remake game Embracer’s CEO simply replied “Anything I say becomes headline news so this will be my only comment on this matter”.
No doubt this comment won’t satisfy fans hoping the remake had been cancelled, especially with Embracer laying off staff and failing to mention its existence in their latest financial report. One could look at Embracer’s statement and still hold out hope, although its chances seem slim at present.
Embracer was unwilling to comment further due to Sony removing the trailer for Knights of the Old Republic remake from social media and YouTube channels, prompting speculation it had been cancelled; though Sony later stated this could have been due to expiring music licenses (unlikely given they only used Star Wars content as part of this title).
Embracer fans’ speculation can be understandably high given recent news from Embracer: they failed to secure a $2 billion deal and began cutting 900 staff. While a remake might provide much-needed business revenue growth opportunities for Embracer, fans have long asked for one themselves.
