STAR WARS: KNIGHTS OF THE OLD REPUBLIC Remake Officially Announced For PS5

Confirming a recent rumor, Sony has officially announced that a remake of the classic Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic video game is in development for the PlayStation 5. Check out a trailer...

We've been hearing whispers that a remake of classic Star Wars video game Knights of the Old Republic might be in the works, and Sony finally made it official during today's PlayStation Showcase.

It's only being developed as a PS5 exclusive for now, unfortunately, but it could reach other next-gen consoles down the line. It's also been confirmed that Aspyr will be developing the remaster, following their previous work on Republic Commando and Jedi Outcast.

An announcement teaser has been released, setting the scene with an ominous voiceover and a shot of Darth Revan igniting his lightsabre. "Peace is a lie... that is what the Sith believe. They promised power, now they wield it. We face the greatest Sith in generations. They must be stopped."

Set almost 4000 years before the formation of the Galactic Empire, Knights of the Old Republic started out as a LucasArts game released in 2003, but there have since been a plethora of spinoff novels and comic books. It's still considered by many to be the best Star Wars game of all time.

A live-action adaptation has been something fans have been hoping to see for many years, but a few rumors aside, we still haven't had any solid updates on that front.
