The mysterious Knights of the Old Republic remake has caught the attention of Star Wars fans everywhere, ever since it was announced back in 2021.

While most people are clamouring for information about the game, The Embracer Group seems reluctant to speak about the game.

The Embracer Group’s CEO has declined to speak about KOTOR once again

During an earnings presentation earlier today, The Embracer Group CEO, Lars Wingefors, was asked again about the remake of Knights of the Old Republic.

As reported by Axios' Stephen Totilo, Wingefors was asked: “How are you feeling about the Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic remake? I know it’s your favourite question.”

In response, the CEO said: “I notice that anything I say to this becomes a headline, so that is my only comment.”

Embracer does not talk about KOTOR often

Since being announced via a dramatic teaser trailer in 2021, not very much information about KOTOR has come out, with Embracer rarely speaking up about the upcoming release.

The game is being developed by Saber Interactive and Lucasfilm Games as a remake of BioWare’s original Knights of the Old Republic game.

While it is likely that the game is still in progress after it was listed as being in active development during a quarterly earnings report, Embracer is not quick to speak about it, going as far as removing the trailer from Sony’s YouTube channel and declining to comment on why.

There have been rumours that the game has been indefinitely delayed for over a year, and the lack of information doesn’t help inspire confidence in the game ever seeing the light of day.
