The Star Wars universe is more famous than ever nowadays. As it is, the last two Star Wars films, Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story raked in over $3 billion around the world. The universe has kept on growing with books, comic books and different stories that are a piece of the official Star Wars canon, including the new computer game Star Wars Battlefront. Furthermore, we have information that LucasFilm might collaborate with Bioware to reboot the fan-most loved game Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, making those characters and components a part of the official canon.
The Star Wars Game Outpost ran over the Patreon page of gaming writer Liam Robertson, who has discovered that BioWare’s Austin office is taking a shot at new Star Wars computer games. One of these recreations is allegedly a “remake/revival” of Knights of the Old Republic. In addition to this, it is being speculated that this game might be declared amid Star Wars Celebration this week in Orlando. However, that hasn’t been affirmed. This is what Liam Robertson stated about Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic video game reboot: “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. 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 will 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.”
Liam Robertson further added that since Knights of the Old Republic is not considered a part of the Star Wars canon, this venture might be “like wiping the slate clean.” This further indicates that it will “embrace the new Star Wars lore.” This is because the first game was considered a part of the Star Wars Legends canon, and not the official Star Wars canon. The first game was set 4000 years before the building of the Galactic Empire. In it, Darth Malak, a Dark Lord of the Sith, has unleashed a Sith army against the Republic. Fans would play as a Jedi knight and go to various parts of the galaxy to demolish what was known as the Star Forge, Darth Malak’s military assets.

The first game was composed by Drew Karpyshyn. He was asked by a fan on Twitter a month ago if he was working on another computer game. The writer had uncovered that he was taking a shot at another game. Although he wouldn’t reveal any insights about the game being referred to, it’s conceivable that he was alluding to this Star Wars computer game reboot. Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic was followed by the 2005 sequel Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords, and the 2011 huge multiplayer online role playing game (MMPROG) Star Wars: The Old Republic. While we eagerly wait for an official declaration about this new Star Wars game, take a glance at Drew Karpyshyn’s tweet beneath.
