Rumor: Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic 'Reimagining' in Development - News

It has been over 16 years since the release of the original Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic on the original Xbox and just over 15 years since the release of the sequel, The Sith Lords.

It appears the franchise might be seeing a return in the future. Two independent sources told Cinelinx a new game in the series is in development. 

One source says the game is a remake, while the other says it is more than just a remake. The new game would take elements from the first two games to bring them back into the current Star Wars canon. "Not necessarily a remake, so much as a re-imagining."

The original Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic released for the original Xbox in July 2003 and later for Windows PC, while the sequel Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords launched for the Xbox in December 2004 and Windows PC in February 2005.

There's nothing I'd hate more than to see this get ruined, if rumors are true. Cautiously optimistic.

On the other hand, if they actually pull it off, I'd be giddy as a school girl!

Knights of the Old Republic is amazing. I just voted it my #2 all-time best game in the Top 50 thread, like in fact I do every year. It does everything right. I loathe EA. Everything they do is wrong. It was like a nightmare to hear Disney had a moment of insanity and for whatever reason granted EA of all companies the rights to make Star Wars games. And like I expected, they ruined everything, as they have ruined everything I ever held dear in my life. It's like it is their mission. Since about 2003 I vowed I wouldn't ever buy anything that has EA's name on it ever again, no new stuff, no stuff from the bargain bin or even second-hand stuff. And I never did, they don't exist to me. Their treachery runs deep. Knights of the Old Republic is such a special game however, that if they make it perfect, and I mean absolutely perfect, like the original is, I'd actually buy an EA game.

No room for pessimism, a disappointing KOTOR 3 will still be more appealing to me than 90% of RPGs on the market. And it just fits a niche nothing else is fulfilling.

With Disney and EA at the helm I'd rather not.
