Earlier this year we reported that one of the best Star Wars games ever, Knights of the Old Republic, was getting a fan-made Unreal 5 animated series made with Lucasfilm’s blessing. It was originally supposed to start in October but the shock reveal of a KOTOR remake has meant that the animated series is being delayed – but there are spin-offs coming first.
The Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic animated series is being made in Unreal 5 by the fans in Unreal Cinema, which was given the thumbs-up by Lucasfilm as long as it’s non-profit and doesn’t use footage from the movies. The big reveal back in August was the cast list and a targeted release date for the first episode of mid-October.
Clearly that didn’t happen, and in their latest video (below) Unreal Cinema confirms that “due to the announcement of the remake” and a few other factors the KOTOR Unreal series has been delayed – but they do confirm “the series will still be continuing as planned” and isn’t cancelled.
