There have been whisperings for a while now regarding a modern remake of Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic. And though the rumor mill turned, only now are we hearing something more solid about the game: its being developed by Aspyr Studios.

This still isnt official information, however. This news comes from a statement by Bloomberg reporter Jason Schreier (a long time games journalist with a track record for breaking industry secrets). Schreier was recently a guest on the MinnMax podcast, where they spoke about the game.

Schreier confirmed that development toward the remake is being handled by Aspyr, a game studio known for porting games more than developing them. Best known for porting triple-A titles onto Mac and Linux, they also have a record of porting various EA titles onto consoles.
 

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.


This follows rumors that neither publisher EA nor original developer BioWare were working on the game, instead opting for a then-unknown third party.

So what does this mean for the KOTOR remake? Since it doesnt really confirm or deny various design elements, the only actual assurance is that it is still being developed, and hasnt been dropped. While rumors indicate it as more of a remake than a port, it won't be SO different to question the quality of the game. Aspyr can be trusted to port games effectively, adding a bit more polish on top wont do them any harm.

Speaking of KOTOR projects, what ever happened to that Knights of the Old Republic movie they were going to make?
