Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic – Remake is “Alive and Well” – Saber Interactive

Since its announcement in 2021, the Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic – Remake has been shrouded in uncertainty. Initial excitement turned into concern when reports emerged that the game's development had been put on hold, and later, rumors circulated that Saber Interactive had taken the reins from the original developers. Despite these tumultuous times, official updates were scarce, leading to speculation about the project's future.
The silence was partially broken when Saber Interactive separated from its parent company, Embracer Group, purchasing its independence for a hefty sum. At this point, it was hinted that Saber had taken a significant, albeit unspecified, licensed AAA project with it. Many believed, supported by various reports, that this project was none other than the much-anticipated remake of Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic. This speculation has now been confirmed.
In a discussion with IGN, Saber Interactive's CEO, Matthew Karch, openly acknowledged the company's involvement with the remake. While specific details on the development stage were not disclosed, Karch reassured fans that the project is not only progressing but also aims to surpass expectations. His commitment to delivering a product that exceeds what fans are hoping for underscores Saber Interactive's dedication to this iconic title.
The exact timeline for when the game might be ready for a public reveal remains ambiguous. Embracer Group, despite parting ways with Saber Interactive, indicated last month that the game’s release might still be a ways off. 
Aside from the Knights of the Old Republic remake, Saber Interactive's portfolio remains robust, with ongoing projects like Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine 2, Jurassic Park: Survival, and John Carpenter’s Toxic Commando also in development, showcasing the developer's ambitious plans for the future.
