Embracer Group is advancing development on the upcoming Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic ( KOTOR ) remake for PS5 and PC from Aspyr Media
The game, announced last September in a short trailer during a Sony showcase, was originally made by Aspyr, which is known for its ports of KOTOR and KOTORII
But development on the remake was halted after a demo was presented to Lucasfilm and Sony, Bloomberg reported in July.
Saber had helped develop the remake, but a cryptic statement in Embracer's earnings report last week seemed to suggest that Saber could officially take over.
"One of the band's AAA projects moved to another studio within the band," Embracer wrote. “It was done to make sure the quality bar is where we need it for the title. »
In its earnings report, Embracer also said it "does not expect any material title delays due to this transition.
" The company has not announced a public release date for the KOTOR remake. Embracer did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Embracer made headlines last week for a series of acquisitions, including the intellectual property rights to parts of Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit.
