Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic remake developed by Aspyr

I find your lack of faith disturbing.

The unannounced Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic remake will be developed by renowned port studio Aspyr.

Bloomberg reporter Jason Schreier revealed the detail while a guest on the MinnMax podcast. It follows earlier whispers of a KOTOR remake which have swirled for some time, and which also suggested the project wasn't being handled internally by EA or original studio BioWare.

Eurogamer has separately heard of Aspyr's involvement, and that while the developer is known for often releasing straight ports, work is currently underway to make the project more of a remake instead.

Aspyr previously worked on Mac, Android and iOS ports of both KOTOR and its sequel, along with countless other Star Wars games.Watch on YouTube

Back in January, another report suggested the project would contain elements from both KOTOR games "to bring certain things into the current Star Wars canon".

Speaking last night on the MinnMax podcast, Schreier said: "This is public at this point, I've basically confirmed Aspyr - which is the company that's ported a bunch of KOTOR games - is working on the remake."

The full interview is worth a listen for discussion on revealing games, and whether reporting "spoils" game announcements.
