The highly-anticipated Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic remake seems to be the latest in several major video game delays that have affected the gaming industry recently.
According to a Bloomberg report, the Knights of the Old Republic remake has been put on hold indefinitely while the developer, Aspyr Media, re-evaluates the progress made so far and reconsiders the reality of releasing the title in the near future if at all.
Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic was officially announced in late-2021 but it had apparently already been in active development for three years. The game was originally set to launch on Windows PC and Sony’s PlayStation 5 consoles sometime before the end of 2022 (followed by a release on Microsoft’s Xbox Series X consoles at a later date after an unspecified exclusive PS5 launch window expired) though Bloomberg’s sources now say that a 2025 release is more realistic.
Also according to Bloomberg’s sources, a presentation of the game was made on June 30th to showcase the progress made which ultimately resulted in the firing of both the design director, Brad Prince, and the game’s art director, Jason Minor.
No official statement regarding Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic’s delay has been made yet.
Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic follows The Lord of the Rings: Gollum and several other major video games that have had their releases postponed recently.
