If you’re a fan of Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic and have been hoping to play a proper sequel or even a decent expansion, those dreams are pretty much dead. Poem Studios have been working on their own version called Apeiron, which is basically a fan-made project where it took the original Xbox game and expanded on the story along with some original content. Sadly, this is not a Lucasfilm project, it’s basically an attempt for fans to have their own versions and the hope that maybe, just maybe, the owners of the IP might pick them up and use it. However, this arrived in the mail and killed those dreams.
It's with a great sadness that I'm posting today; I recently received a letter from Lucasfilm instructing Poem to end production on Apeiron. After a few days, I've exhausted my options to keep it afloat; we knew this day was a possibility. I'm sorry and may the force be with you pic.twitter.com/OCRmMIjwGT

It’s a shame the company decided to shut it down now, considering it’s basically one of the few Lucasfilm involved games that people enjoy and rarely bitch about. One would hope that this means the company is working on a proper reboot or sequel but considering how Star Wars games have gone over the years… we’re not holding our breath.
