Star Wars and RPG fans rejoice – a new Knights of the Old Republic remake is on the way. The long-dormant franchise hasn't been seen since the second game all the way back in 2004 but the remake was a surprise reveal during PlayStation's September State of Play.

Here's everything we know about the next instalment, including who's developing it. Details remain slim right now, but there's always time to look ahead to the future at this exciting RPG remake.

Elsewhere, read up on some other upcoming games. We've got a look at the Dead Island 2 release date, as well as everything you need to know about Skull and Bones. For a healthy dose of speculation, check out what we want to see in Bloodborne 2.

What is Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic?

The original Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, or KOTOR, was an RPG developed by Bioware for the original Xbox.

Created by many of the team that would go on to make the Mass Effect trilogy, the game was set 4,000 years before the formation of the Empire and was focused on a Sith known as Darth Malak.

The sequel, the imaginatively titled Knights of the Old Republic 2, was developed by Obsidian Entertainment and released just a year after the first game.

According to reports, the remake will drop the combat system of the original in favour of a more action-oriented approach.

Knights of the Old Republic release date speculation

Woah there, Padawan. The game is likely some way away.

Whilst it has been announced, no details regarding the release window have been shared thus far.

It all depends how far the team at Aspyr Media are along in their development of the remake. Our best guess is that we won't see the game until 2023 at the very earliest, although whether it arrives in Q1, Q2, Q3 or Q4 is anyone's guess right now.

That was followed by news later in 2022 of the game's internal delay after testing poorly within Aspyr. That'll likely push the game back even further, so it could be a case of late 2023 at best, or more likely a 2024 release date.

Knights of the Old Republic platforms

Despite being a Xbox Exclusive previously the game is coming to PlayStation and PC platforms first as a timed exclusive. We imagine the remake will come to Xbox platforms 12 months after initially launching.
