Rumours of a KotOR remake have been circling for quite some time. In January 2020, geek culture website Cinelinx reported that a new title in the series was in development, either a reboot or a sequel, and would incorporate elements of both previous KotOR titles to fit into the new Disney canon. Reporting on Schreier's interview, Eurogamer also revealed they had heard reports of Aspyr developing the sequel.
As of right now, it's unclear whether the new title would be a remaster or more of a full-blown remake, as the Cinelinx report suggested. Either way, it appears to be a departure from the direct ports that Aspyr is known for.
