Electronic Arts publishers and their studio BioWare have commented on possible involvement in the development of the recently announced remake of Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic.
Recall that for the updated Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, Texas Aspyr Media (part of the Embracer Group) was responsible, while the original game was created by BioWare.
Canadian studio in your official microblog stated that she is proud of the work done on Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, “With great interest” will continue to follow the remake and “impatiently” waiting for the opportunity to play it.
We’re proud of the work we did on the original Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic and genuinely cannot wait to play Aspyr’s Remake! As we continue our work on Star Wars: The Old Republic, we will watch with great interest. May the Force Be With You.

As for the answer from Electronic Arts, the host of The Game Awards requested it from the publisher. Geoff Keighley… Despite the detailed comment of a company representative, the situation has not been clarified.
Electronic Arts did not confirm or deny its participation in the remake, instead reminding that it will continue to create Star Wars games and cooperate with Lucasfilm Games “In the coming years”…
