Saber Interactive, the developer behind Evil Dead: Gamesjoined with Aspyr to develop Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic Remake.
In the recent Q4 Embracer Group report, board member Matthew Karch shared that Aspyr and Saber Interactive have teamed up to remake the 2003 classic.
“Aspyr went to great lengths to make this the best game they could make,” said Karch. “When we acquired Aspyr, we knew from the start that they were going to ask for our support. Saber has deep expertise in creating these types of products. We’ve done that on Halo – on many Halo productions – so we spent a lot of time working with them to deliver this title.”
Karch went on to say that a lot of effort is being put into the game and that the team has to essentially remake the game from scratch, but fans will be hearing more about the game “in the next few months”.
“We have full confidence that the game is going to be great, but it’s a massive, massive product, and big productions require a lot of effort and a lot of time to perfect. And especially when you’re talking about an old game – very old – we basically had to remake that game from scratch,” he said.
Knights Of The Old Republic Remake was announced last year and is set to release on PC and as a timed PS5 exclusive. Both BioWare and EA confirmed shortly afterwards that they would not participate.
Saber Interactive is also known for the development of World War Z. Its latest title, Evil Dead: Games Releases May 13 for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X | S. In the NME three-star review, Jake Green said, “Evil Dead: Games is a must-play for Raimi heads, but will be harder to recommend to others. ”
