A PlayStation 5 Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic Remake is officially happening, as revealed during the PlayStation Showcase. It is uncertain if the long-rumored remake is a PlayStation 5 exclusive based on the first teaser cinematic shown during today’s presentation, but it will be a full remake of the classic Western RPG that was originally created by BioWare. (Update: It is a “console exclusive on PlayStation 5 at launch,” meaning a timed console exclusive.) Coming from Aspyr Media in collaboration with Lucasfilm Games, see the first Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic Remake trailer below.
Rumors that Star Wars: Knights of the Republic could soon see a remake first emerged back in January of 2020 when a report claimed that the game would be a “reimagining” of the original experience. Stay tuned for more updates as we wait to learn more about the PlayStation 5 remake.
