The rumors of a possible remake of the classic role-playing game Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic are still very persistent. Now, a current one says that the new edition will be provided with a completely new combat system.
In the past few months, there have been rumors that a remake of the role-playing game Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic originally published in 2003 is in development. Shortly before the start of the weekend, we received another rumor about the not officially announced new edition.
As the insider and Youtuber MrMattyPlays reports, the remake of Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic should have to do without the well-known turn-based combat system of the original. This is to be replaced by an action role-playing game system.
“This is going to be an action RPG of some sort, I all know is that they are kinda walking away from that real-time turn-based combat and doing something more along the lines of action combat,” Matty explains in his latest video, which you can watch here.
According to MrMattyPlays, the developers want to address a larger target group in this way. However, the Youtuber did not reveal where he got this information from.
In the course of the week, Bloomberg author and industry insider Jason Schreier, who is considered a reliable source, spoke up and confirmed the existence of the remake. According to him, the new edition of Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic is being created at the development studio of Aspyr Media.
The studio is already familiar with the series and in the past ported both Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic and the successor to the mobile platforms. However, Aspyr Media has not yet commented on the rumors of a possible remake of the cult title.
