Aspyr Media Studio has already worked on ports of other Star Wars games

THE Sony presented yesterday (09) that Aspyr Media is making a remake of the classic Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, a 2003 game that to this day is considered one of the best games ever made in the Star Wars franchise, and one of Bioware’s biggest hits.

The official announcement confirms a rumor that had been circulating for a few months, and that the journalist Jason Schreier (Bloomberg) himself had been asked about the subject for years, for having important contacts in the games industry and is almost always one of the first to release explosive news like this.

The game originally released by Electronic Arts in 2003 and developed by Bioware has always been one of the most beloved of the Star Wars franchise, entitled to a sequence that, despite not receiving the same prominence, considerably expanded Bioware’s visibility, bringing gameplay improvements and generating an MMO, Star Wars: The Old Republic (2011). Despite the franchise’s success story, the original game is 10 before the exclusivity agreement between Electronic Arts and Disney, which during the 8 years since the most canceled deal that launched Star Wars projects.
