Saber Interactive CEO says KOTOR Remake is “full of energy”

After years of rumors and whispers about being canceled, Saber Interactive’s Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic remaster is now “full of energy,” according to its CEO. Any further information is still remote, but fans of the original will be pleased that at least a brief update has been given.

Saber Interactive CEO Matthew Karch confirmed in an interview with IGN on Tuesday (April 2) that the company brought KOTOR with it during its split from Embracer Group.

He confirmed the game is still in active development: “Obviously we’re working on that.

“This has been reported in the media many times. I will say that the game is still very much alive and well and we are committed to ensuring that we exceed our customers’ expectations.”

News about a release date remains unknown and unconfirmed, with Kaci not providing any further details. Developers have been working on a remake of the 2003 Star Wars role-playing game since it was first announced in 2021 that it would be revived on the PlayStation 5 console. It was reportedly suspended indefinitely after a year.

Reorganization of Saber Interactive

A lot has happened over the past few months for the video game developer and publisher, with Embracer Group completing the sale of Saber Interactive in March 2024. They sold the company for $247 million, four years after the first acquisition cost them money in 2020. $525 million.

Embracer CEO Lars Wingefors described the move as a “win-win solution” in a company statement: “I am delighted that we have found a win-win solution for Embracer and the Saber part that will now leave us.

“This transaction puts both companies in a stronger position for future growth. Following the previous board decision, Embracer is now able to cease all operations in Russia while protecting the jobs of many developers under new independent ownership.”

Matthew Kutch described the deal in an equally positive light, saying: “This divestment puts both parties in a better position to grow their respective businesses.

“I will continue to be a large long-term shareholder in Embracer and we will continue to be a partner on several ongoing and future projects.

“This deal also secures the livelihoods of hundreds of professionals, many of whom I have worked with for more than two decades.”
