Aspyr Media announced that it is canceling the Restored Content DLC for the Switch version of Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II – The Sith Lords.
“Sadly, today we’re announcing that the Restored Content DLC for the Nintendo Switch version of Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II – The Sith Lords will not be moving forward for release,” Aspyr revealed in a statement on Twitter.
However, Aspyr is trying to do right by fans by letting those who purchased the game before this announcement receive a complimentary game on Switch. The complimentary games include: Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, Star Wars: The Force Unleashed, Star Wars: Republic Commando, Star Wars: Episode 1 Racer, Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy, and Star Wars Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast. There’s also the option to get a Steam version of Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II.

The Restored Content DLC was a fan volunteer effort to mod in missing content for Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II, as well as fix technical issues. It was officially endorsed by Aspyr Media back in 2015.
Aspyr was working on a remake of the first Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic game. However, back in August 2022, development was reportedly paused due to Lucasfilm and Sony being disappointed in an internal demo. Now, development has reportedly shifted from Aspyr to Saber Interactive.
