The writing was already on the wall for a new generation of adaptations of Darth Raven’s story, and now, we fear the worst.

    With BioWare’s 2003 classic held up as one of the greatest video games of all time, you can only imagine the hype when Aspyr announced it was working on a remake in 2021. Is. The new update could be the final nail in the coffin.

    Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic may have been fired.

    When the Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic remake was announced during the PlayStation Showcase in September 2021, the flashy teaser trailer was a welcome surprise. Unfortunately, Sony has gone on the attack to scrub all references from online.

    Along with hiding the Knights of the Old Republic teaser on Sony’s official YouTube channel, the gaming giant is also deleting tweets related to the remake. On Twitter, @Crusader3456 wrote a thread proving how the KOTOR remake is slowly being scrapped.
