The editor of the Cinelinx publication, Jordan Mason, announces the development of the new Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic game. The journalist received information about this from two independent sources, one of which helped him confirm last year’s information about the return of Ewan McGregor to the role of Obi-Wan Kenobi.
According to one of the sources, this is a remake of the original KOTOR, rumors of which have been going on since 2015. It was previously reported that in 2016 the project was relegated to the background, but now the game is supposedly under development again. Another informant assures that that project was not so much a remake as a kind of sequel. He writes that the new KOTOR was supposed to integrate the elements of the first two games in order to connect some things with the current story of Star Wars, but the plot would be more of a rethinking than a literal remake.
Mason does not have other details about the game, but he knows that Electronic Arts has several Star Wars projects at various stages of development, including the sequel to the Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, something related to the Luminous project (the codename for one of the currently developing SW game) and an unnamed new game in SW universe for Nintendo Switch. Perhaps some of this will be announced at the upcoming E3 or a separate Star Wars event.
The original Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic was released in 2003. The game was developed by BioWare, and the sequel that followed it in 2004 was already handled by the Obsidian Entertainment team. The latter was supposed to work on the triquel, but the game was never put into production.
