Studio Aspyr is currently working on a remake of Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic with the PlayStation, since the game will only be available on Sony devices when it comes out. Reports have been going around in the last few hours, but they haven’t been confirmed yet, that Microsoft had the chance to help make the remake. For Xbox, but it turned them down, just like it did with Marvel games.
Aspyr Studios and PlayStation announced Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic last year. This came as a surprise to every one, since KOTOR was originally an Xbox-only game, and seeing the remake announced at Sony’s conference along with the PlayStation logo led to a lot of heated debates among players.
Some people were surprised that Xbox let this happen, while others praised Sony for getting one of the most popular Xbox games and making it an exclusive for the PlayStation. Get in touch with them before helping PlayStation. People say that the company didn’t want to help make the game an exclusive Xbox title, even if it was just for a short time.
In the past, accurate sources have told me that the Xbox team was contacted for KOTOR Remake and they turned it down.
We know that Microsoft turned down the Marvel deal because it wanted to put more attention on the games it already owned. As for the Star Wars remake, there isn’t a clear reason yet, but it’s likely that all the Xbox studios are busy making new games, so it’s possible that Microsoft didn’t have enough people working on it to accept the deal.
