Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic Remake was one of the biggest surprises at the recent PlayStation Showcase, but many questions remain about the game’s development, including whether BioWare, team author of the original, was involved in the project, but the EA’s response it has remained rather vague on this point.
Geoff Keighley contacted Electronic Arts directly to find out if BioWare has anything to do with the makeover work on Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic Remake, which was shown with a teaser during the PlayStation Showcase, but the message received in response simply looks like a very corporate pre-compiled communication, which basically says nothing.
However, the answer is likely to be a “no”, quite simply: “We are proud of our longstanding partnership with Lucasfilm Games, which will continue for the next few years. Our talented teams have created some of the most successful games in the history of the Star Wars franchise, such as Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, Star Wars: Battlefront, Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes, Star Wars: The Old Republic and Star Wars: Squadrons. We love Star Wars and can’t wait to create more experiences for players. “
It looks like one Negative answer to the direct question, among the many turns of phrase. So all the creative load of Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic Remake seems to have been entrusted to Aspyr, a team that has previously specialized in porting but has recently grown a lot in size.
It must be said that the starting material is very delicate, since it is one of the BioWare titles remembered with greater affection, therefore the suspicions about the success of the operation are not lacking, but we still await further information on the project, which however promises to be very much Interesting.
