Rumors have been spreading that BioWare is possibly working on a new "Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic" game. Many gamers have apparently been waiting for any confirmation from the developer that might help establish its credibility. Although the game studio has not issued any official statement about the game being in development, Liam Robertson, an industry insider reportedly confirms that it is true.

Robertson was able to discuss his speculations through a podcast that the new "Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic" is expected to revive the franchise. He stated that BioWare Austin is assigned to work on the new RPG. However he noted that the developers are working on a remake of the older games in the franchise, says Game Rant. He also adds that he does not know "when this is set to come out, but it has been in development for a little while now."

BioWare is supposedly "wiping the slate clean" with the new "Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic" to slow position the new games to match the new "Star Wars" canon. Sources seem to like the idea since a lot of new stories and characters have been introduced into the series' lore since the last game came out. Robertson also said that "I don't know how the game will end up." He also mentions that the game might not be a remake at all depending on the developer's plans.

The insider suspects that BioWare might instead develop an entirely new game instead of the original plans for a remake. For several years, fans have always hoped that the game studio will revisit the "Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic" franchise. Fans are most likely glad that speculations of a new game from the series have been supported by the recent updates.

BioWare's most recent release "Mass Effect: Andromeda" has received negative reviews due to the game's visual flaws. The complaints even went as far that an employee became the target of harassment from several fans, reports Gamenguide. If the speculations about "Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic" are true, it would be one of the other "Star Wars" games currently being developed by the studio.
