The unannounced, but very much anticipated Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic remake became a little less mysterious today.

One of the mysteries surrounding the Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic remake, which multiple reports revealed is currently in the works, has actually been the identity of the team behind it.

Bloomberg reporter Jason Schreier, who was among the first to reveal that a Knights of the Old Republic remake is in development, has now confirmed that Aspyr is the studio behind it. Eurogamer also corroborated this news, adding that the project is going to be more of a remake than a straight remaster.

Schreier dropped this tidbit in an interview with MinnMax (embedded above), ending months of speculation about who’s actually making the game. Surprisingly, original creator BioWare does not appear to be involved – so far, at least. An official announcement, when it does arrive, will likely contain plenty more details.

Aspyr isn’t exactly known for high-production projects. The studio has, however, been bringing classic Star Wars games to modern platforms, more recently with Star Wars: Republic Commando on PS4 and Switch.
