Sony Seemingly Removes Most Traces Of Star Wars: Knights Of The Previous Republic Remake

Sony kicked off a September 2021 PlayStation Showcase by formally revealing a rumored remake of the traditional RPG, Star Wars: Knights of the Previous Republic, for PlayStation 5. That was the final we heard of it, although, save for a Bloomberg report the next yr that acknowledged the venture was on indefinite improvement maintain because of main workers departures. 

Now, it appears Sony and PlayStation are eradicating most traces of the KOTOR remake, deleting tweets and hiding the reveal trailer on its YouTube channel, as reported by Kotaku. 

Yesterday, on the Gaming Leaks And Rumors subreddit, user TricolorChutoy posted that the 2021 PlayStation Showcase KOTOR remake reveal trailer had been just lately delisted. That very same day, Twitter person Crusader II Elessar  posted the identical factor, noting, nonetheless, that in the full 2021 PlayStation Showcase video, the KOTOR remake trailer remained. With some extra digging, Crusader II Elessar discovered that PlayStation had seemingly deleted each tweet mentioning the remake, save for the one under that additionally mentions different video games. 

Moreover, with some Wayback Machine tinkering, they realized {that a} 2022 snapshot of PlayStation’s Twitter confirmed {that a} totally different tweet solely concerning the KOTOR remake nonetheless existed, that means its deletion occurred between final yr and now. 

Sport Informer has reached out to Sony and PlayStation concerning the hidden trailer and deleted tweets and can replace this story if remark or assertion is acquired. 

As for hypothesis on why PlayStation is likely to be doing this, it stems from the remake’s developer: Aspyr Media. Aspyr is owned by Embracer Group, which has been canceling video games and shutting studios in gentle of a present “restructuring program.” After Embracer Group was “knowledgeable that one main strategic partnership that has been negotiated for seven months is not going to materialize,” or in different phrases, the collapse of a $2 billion deal as reported by Video Games Chronicle, it carried out this restructuring program. 

Given all of that, it would not be shocking if Aspyr, which Embracer Group acquired in 2021, was affected by the restructuring and the KOTOR remake venture canceled. Nonetheless, with no official phrase on the venture, that is hypothesis for now.
