Saber Interactive has been added to the team working on the Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic Remake.
The update came from Embracer Group (as spotted by Video Games Chronicle) in their latest Q4 financial report. During the broadcast, Saber’s CEO & co-founder Matthew Karch revealed that the studio will support Aspyr on the project. “Aspyr has gone full in to make this the best game they can make. When we acquired Aspyr, we knew from the start that they would require our assistance.”
“Saber has tremendous expertise in creating these types of products,” he continued. “We’ve done it on Halo – on multiple Halo products – so we’ve been spending a lot of time working with them to bring this title over. We’re fully confident that the game is going to be fantastic, but it’s a massive product and massive products require a lot of effort and time to make good. And especially when you’re talking about a game that’s very old, we’ve basically had to remake that game from scratch.”
It certainly sounds from that like we shouldn’t expect a release date any time soon then, alas. The Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic Remake was announced back in September of last year, and will be a PlayStation 5 exclusive. That aside, we don’t know much else about the project just yet.
Recently, Saber Interactive just helped to launch Evil Dead: The Video Game last week. You can read Josh’s thoughts on that just over here.
