“We’re rebuilding one of the greatest RPGs of all time for a new generation with modern tech, features, visuals and more, while maintaining the integrity of the story and characters that we’ve come to cherish,” Ryan Treadwell, lead producer on the project, said. According to Aspyr, the team working on the remake includes “industry veterans,” as well as some of the people who worked on the original game almost 20 years ago.

Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic was originally released in 2003 for Xbox and PC. Aspyr previously handled the mobile port. Details are sparse, and there is currently no release date. However, it was confirmed that the remake is PS5 exclusive.
