Saber Interactive is working on the upcoming Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic remake, alongside Aspyr.

As part of Embracer Group’s Q4 financial report, board member Matthew Karch announced that Saber Interactive, which most recently released Evil Dead, is now working on the project.

“Aspyr has gone full in to make this the best game that they can make,” Karch said.

“When we acquired Aspyr, we knew from the start that they would require our assistance.

In 2017, some KoTOR plot elements were referenced in the Star Wars Rebels animated series, such as the Mandalorian Wars and the ancient Sith planet Malachor. A deleted scene from The Clone Wars was also reportedly set to include Darth Revan from KoTOR.

Later, an art book for movie Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker contained a reference to a Sith Legion named after Revan.

In 2019, Lucasfilm also announced it would launch a range of media exploring the “High Republic Era”, which officially takes place several hundred years before the Star Wars movies. »
