Is a Knights of the Old Republic remake on the way?

MinnMax’s Ben Hanson interviews reporter Jason Schreier about his new book on the unsustainable aspects of the game industry called Press Reset. Jason also talks about when reporting should break the news on game reveals, his transition from Kotaku to Bloomberg as a writer, the challenges of having a large platform on Twitter, and apparently a remake of Knights of the Old Republic happening at Aspyr Media.
