Why We'll Never See A Star Wars: Republic Commando Remake

Star Wars and anything related to Star Wars will probably always have some form of success. The franchise has some of the most diehard fans. The prequel films, while somewhat of a letdown for many fans, paved the way for a new era of Star Wars content. Star Wars: The Clone Wars brought forth some of the most beloved characters of the franchise. Ahsoka Tano and Asajj Ventress are some of the more obvious names, but Delta Squad is a group of characters that receives a little less attention.


Delta Squad is a team of elite clone troopers that are commonly referred to as "clone commandos." Star Wars: Republic Commando was a first-person tactical shooter that followed the missions and exploits of Delta Squadron. The game took players through a short, but very sweet adventure through the events of The Clone Wars, as well as the Battle of Geonosis and even the Battle of Kashyyyk.

Star Wars: Republic Commando did receive very favorable reviews, so why will players never see a remake of the original?

The Disney Takeover

Star Wars: Republic Commando was actually planned to have a sequel. Imperial Commando or Rebel Commando (the title had not been decided yet), would have given players an opportunity to continue the storyline of its predecessor. Unfortunately, the game was sent to the chopping block. Disney's acquisition of Lucasfilm played a pivotal role in the cancellation of many Star Wars titles.


Disney had also acquired LucasArts and the video game rights to the IP. LucasArts was in a state of reconstruction and much of the original team departed from the company. Disney wanted a clean slate for the franchise and ruled that much of the extended universe content would be made non-canon. So originally, games like Star Wars: Republic Commando and Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic were considered non-cannon. Luckily, Knights of the Old Republic has found its way back into the canon, but the same cannot be said about Republic Commando.

The chances of this beloved game making a comeback are pretty minimal, even improbable. Unless Disney decides to revisit this side of the extended universe, fans may never see a remake of Star Wars: Republic Commando.
