Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic Remake Is Reportedly Paused

Bloomberg shared that Aspyr fired the game’s art director and design director.

Seems like the Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic remake has been put on hold, as reported by Bloomberg. The game's developer Aspyr has recently suddenly fired the game’s art director and design director, so it's unclear what the studio is going to do now.

"In a series of meetings throughout July, Aspyr’s two studio heads told employees that the project is on pause and that the company will look for new contracts and development opportunities," shared Bloomberg.

The remake was announced last year and has been in development for nearly three years at Aspyr. On June 30, Aspyr finalized a demo of the game, but the following week, the company fired design director Brad Prince and art director Jason Minor. 

The studio told its employees that the demo "wasn’t where they wanted it to be and that the project would be paused." The problem might be the "disproportionate amount of time and money" put into the demo or the timeline. If previously, Aspyr planned to release the game by the end of 2022, now the developers speculate that a more realistic date would be 2025.

In May, Embracer announced that Saber Interactive would also join the project. Some at Aspyr now think that Saber may take it over completely.
