Xbox’s Boss Wants A Knights Of The Old Republic Anniversary
Knights of the Old Republic has something of a special place in the hearts of many. Not only becasue it is a great RPG but because it is a great Star Wars RPG. It scarcely gets better than that.
With Fable Anniversary now being a thing (stand by for… our review of the game), someone decided to ask Xbox boss Phil Spencer what the chances were of KotOR getting the same treatment with positive results.
- You’ll Be Able To Play (Expensive) PS2 Games On Your PS4 Now | 2 months ago
- Jessica Jones Disempowers Its Male Characters And The Effect Is Refreshing | 2 months ago
- Hell Is 30 000 Deathclaws Tearing Through Boston And It’s Glorious | 2 months ago
- Sony Santa Monica Is Teasing Something Truly Strange | 2 months ago
Responding to a fan on Twitter, Spencer revealed KOTOR was one of his top 5 RPGs, alongside Ultima Online, The Bard’s Tale, The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind, Fallout and Baldur’s Gate. He was then asked if we might see a KotOR Anniversary Edition in the near future.
@JacobTaylorN7 I like the idea. No idea how the rights would work on that now with all the changes. I’ll put a vote in.

While Spencer was positive, he acknowledged the peculiar licensing nightmare that currently surrounds any old Star Wars title. Disney owns the rights to Star Wars while EA or BioWare would have a word or two about anything being done with the game.
There are certainly challenges but at least someone high up is on board for it.
