This is according to gaming journalist Liam Robertson who revealed the information at the SWGameOutpost podcast. Robertson has in the past been pretty good with his insider information and leaks, so there is a chance that his latest reveal could be the real deal, or at least some parts of it could be true.
According to him, “I’ve learned now that [BioWare Austin is] pretty much now exclusively working on Star Wars games and they’re going to be doing that for the indefinite future. What they’re currently working on right now—and I have this on good authority—is a sort of remake/revival of Knights of the Old Republic.”
However he adds that it might have evolved to something more than a remake. “I don’t know when this is set to come out, but it has been in development for a little while now. I don’t really know how that game’ll end up. I’ve heard that it isn’t exactly a remake anymore, but it started as a remake/revival. Now it’s kind of going from that blueprint in sort of its own original thing. I guess we’ll see what that turns out to be, but they are prototyping it right now.”
Safe to say it should be taken with a grain of salt, but if you loved the original then hopefully whatever BioWare is working on now (or rumored to be working on) will be good.
