Just when we thought things couldn’t get worse for the Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic remake, PlayStation has hinted at its cancelation. Fans have noticed that anything referring to the KOTOR remake has been set to private in the official PlayStation YouTube channel.
Twitter user Crusader II Elessar brought this news to light, finding out about the YouTube videos being set to private. Right now, the only way to view the KOTOR remake trailer on PlayStation’s channel is to rewatch the 2021 PlayStation Showcase.
It’s not just videos either, as Elessar has also brought up how various tweets hyping up the remake have also been deleted. Only the tweet that directly followed the aforementioned PlayStation Showcase is available, but nothing else can be seen.
Unfortunately, this is far from a surprise for anyone updated with the Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic remake. Various reports have come out of the game’s poor state, with development switching from Aspyr Media to Saber Interactive. Insiders have even claimed that the game is never coming out, showing how dire things are.
Aspyr Media has said that the remake is still in development, despite all of the developer changes. We haven’t gotten an official update from Aspyr or Sony since, at least until PlayStation decided to private videos and delete tweets mentioning the title.
Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic fans have had it rough for the past couple of months. Aside from the remake getting canceled, Aspyr Media disappointingly told Switch fans that the promised restored content for KOTOR 2 wouldn’t be coming anymore. While Steam fans can still access the content via mods, fans looking for a more official way to play the content will no longer be able to do so.
Don’t expect to hear much about the Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic remake, unless it’s for an official cancelation. If the game manages to survive this, it’s expected to be a PS5 exclusive.
