Star Wars: The remake project of KOTOR, Aperion, has been imposed and cancelled.
Truly awful news... can’t say I’m surprised though. Was really looking forward to this.
yep I gave up on the idea of an official kotor remake or sequel a few years ago. This was the next best thing and actually looking pretty good. The only way we will see an official kotor game now is if they fill it with micro-transactions unfortunately.
I was soo stupid to read it as "Star Wars: Kotor remake project backed by LucasFilm"...
Were u really looking forward to this knowing it will get shutdown?? I honestly hate these people. They get you hyped up knowing they will never go anywhere because of legal reasons and play the hero/victim card saying oh we would've totally finished it. If it weren't for legal reasons....................... .
I was dying for a new KOTOR game :(
thanks. no one needed a reheat of this game anyway.
Hmm, based on that ratio of up/down votes, it would seem you're the only one who feels that way.
WOW, chris, you really have nothing positive to say about any game, ever...
This was doomed to happen
fuck this shit lmao
Damn you Lucas!!!
I have never understood why people working on this type of thing don't keep quiet and just drop it when it's done. It will go viral once out in the wild.
Once it's done and out there there's a chance they could face legal action. For the mod makers it's better this way, better to be let off with a warning than have to waste time and money in court.
They have no legal grounds to stand in at all. They are using some other companies/persons legal IP. Its a open and shut case.
I am always wondering, why don't fans complete those remakes and present them to the studios that made the games so they could legally launch them while giving fans credit for 'em? The fans make their dreams come true, and the studio loses nothing (money or effort).
At some point Lucasfilm is going to want to do something new in this era, so this isn't surprising. The Old Republic is popular, so it's not going away. Though it will probably be rebooted in a new canaon. I'm interested to see if the new Game of Thrones creators' film series plays in this timeline - it would seem to fit with the style of GOT - though that's not a given.
That sucks,I would love to get a KOTOR remake...the sooner EA loses the rights to Star Wars games the better..I would love to see what a dev like CD Projekt Red,Insomniac,Rockstar,etc could do for a Star Wars game
It baffles me that something like Star Wars—a self-seller hotcake—still doesn't get a proper game, yet. What the heck is EA doing?!
