As exciting as it is, the KOTOR remake has experienced a few bumps on the road, having been delayed on several occasions but the game's developers are committed to putting the remake together for fans to enjoy.

Bloomberg confirmed that the highly-anticipated remake has shifted studios and will no longer be handled by Aspyr Media. The KOTOR remake will now be developed by Saber Interactive which is also owned by Embracer Group. Initial reports said that the sister companies were co-developing the remake but after facing issues under Aspyr's helm, Embracer decided to hand the reins over to Saber.

Of course, avid gamers are well aware that Saber Interactive is responsible for producing titles such as The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt for Nintendo Switch, Halo: The Master Chief Collection, and Crysis Remastered, so we can confidently say that KOTOR is in good hands.

Other details about the Knights of the Old Republic remake are still being kept under wraps. Meanwhile, Star Wars Jedi: Survivor is expected to drop in March 2023.
