Game News Star Wars KOTOR: Evil Dead and Halo Masterchief Collection devs on the remake
The remake of Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic is a furiously awaited project, and for good reason: the original game is one of the most famous in the saga. While waiting for new images, we learn that a new studio is joining the project: Saber Interactive.
Last September, Sony struck a blow by granting itself the announcement of Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic in its PlayStation Showcase : on the home console side, it is after all a PlayStation 5 exclusive (in addition to a planned PC release) and made directly by Aspyr. For the record, it is a studio specializing in the porting of video games: it has, for example, ported Star Wars Jedi Knight II and Jedi Academy on Nintendo Switch and PS4 recently.
Suffice to say that with this very ambitious remake, the firm is taking an important step: the project would also be a kind of reimagining, perhaps with a God of War style and new game modes… In short, the developers have their work cut out for them. A lot, even, to the point of requisitioning the help of another accomplice.
Saber Interactive as backup
It was during Embracer Group’s quarterly results report that we learned that Saber Interactive joins the development of Star Wars KOTOR. Matthew Karch, the CEO of the studio concerned, has also spoken on the subject.
Aspyr has pulled out all the stops to make this the best game they can make. When we acquired Aspyr, we knew from the start that they would need our help. Saber Interactive has considerable expertise in creating these types of products. We’ve done it on Halo – on several Halo projects even – so we spent a lot of time working with them to come up with this title.
We’re fully confident that the game is going to be fantastic, but it’s a massive build and massive builds take a lot of effort and time to do well. Especially when you’re talking about a fairly old game, so we had to redo everything from scratch.
Founded in 2001 in New Jersey in the United States, Saber Interactive has also worked on many complex ports – like The Witcher 3 or World War Z on Switch – and other redesigns, like Crysis Remastered. They also lent a hand to 343 Industries for the Halo The Master Chief Collection or Boss Team Games for the just released Evil Dead The Game.
For the time being, Star Wars KOTOR does not have a release date.
