Industry Insider Again Suggests Knights Of The Old Republic Remake 'Is Real'

Star Wars fans have been asking for a reboot or remake of Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic for years now, and it really does look like we're going to finally get something along those lines - at least eventually.

It was reported at the start of the year by a couple of sources that some kind of KOTOR project was in the works, and speaking on the MinnMaxShow YouTube channel yesterday, Bloomberg reporter and well-known industry insider Jason Schreier appeared to confirm (again) that a remake of the game was officially in the works:

Previously, Schreier told fans that original developer BioWare wasn't part of the project, and that "we'll never guess" who is actually working on it. According to the host of the MinnMaxShow, Aspyr will be the team putting it together, which has traditionally been responsible for ports of Star Wars games, such as Star Wars: Episode I - Racer on Xbox last year, and Star Wars: Republic Commando on Nintendo Switch and PS4 in recent weeks.

Eurogamer also added to this earlier today, saying it "has separately heard of Aspyr's involvement":

"Eurogamer has separately heard of Aspyr's involvement, and that while the developer is known for often releasing straight ports, work is currently underway to make the project more of a remake instead."

Hopefully we won't be waiting too long for the remake to arrive, but in the meantime, don't forget that Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic is backwards compatible on Xbox consoles, and it looks great in 4K on Xbox Series X.
