Rumors of a remake of KOTOR (game name acronym) have been circulating for quite some time, with information from January 2020 suggesting that the game was already in development and that it would “integrate elements of both games to include certain aspects of the current canon. from Star Wars “.
Schreier tweeted in February 2020 that if it happened, it would not be from the hand of EA. In January of this year, we already heard that the remake was being worked on, but that it would not be from EA or Bioware, something that Aspyr would fit into.
In other KOTOR-related news, some information from May 2019 suggested that there would be a movie based on the Bioware game and that it would be made by Disney, possibly as part of a trilogy.
