In the midst of development difficulties, the KOTOR Remake is apparently shifting to a different stu ...

Despite hearing a lot about whats happening behind the scenes, a remake of Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic was first announced about a year ago at the PlayStation Showcase.

The KOTOR remake was put on hold because of a lack of funding. Now it appears that the studio has completely changed. Axios Stephen Totilo quoted Embracer Group CEO Lars Wingefors on Twitter: "One of the groups AAA projects has moved to another studio within the group."

Embracer doesnt say this is about the KOTOR remake, but it's appropriate, given @jasonschreiers' reporting One of the Groups AAA projects has moved to another studio within the Group, in order to ensure the quality standard is where we need it to be for the title.

Wingefors is talking about KOTOR in a space that was otherwise unconfirmed. Depending on a vertical slice that was presented to management, moving development to another studio under the Embracer banner then logically follows.

KOTOR may be in a slump, but there are still several other Star Wars games in the works. Perhaps the most noteworthy is Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, a follow-up to 2019's Fallen Order, which was recently postponed until 2023. Star Wars Eclipse is being developed by Quantic Dream, a studio that continues to be criticized.
