Fans Initiate A Class Action Lawsuit Against Devs For Star Wars KOTOR 2’s Canceled DLC

Defendants have until October 4 to reply.

Story Highlights

  • Fans have launched a class action lawsuit against Aspyr and Saber for canceling the promised “Restored Content Mod” DLC.
  • The Defendants have remained silent on the matter as the deadline to respond, October 4, edges close.

Following last year’s port of Star Wars KOTOR 2 being released on Nintendo Switch, fans have now launched a class action lawsuit against Aspyr Media and Saber Interactive for not delivering on their promise of DLC. While the port may have given the game its second wind, it appears that the developers responsible for it failed to show up due to some alleged trouble behind the scenes.

It should be noted that the announcement trailer for this port of Star Wars KOTOR 2 clearly stated that a “Restored Content Mod” will be available as DLC. Unfortunately, this did not come to pass, leaving the game incomplete and sparking player outrage. Due to neglecting consumers and failure to deliver on promises made, fans have now initiated a legal battle, hoping to obtain refunds.

According to some purchasers of KOTOR 2, they planned on waiting to play the game until the release of restored content. Therefore, for them, it means they paid to play something that was promised but then canceled. Additionally, it appears that all references to the “Restored Content Mod” in the announcement trailer have been stealthily removed.

This lawsuit between Asypyr Media & Saber and Plaintiff Malachi Mickelonis can be viewed online, with all of the information located in the document. It’s worth mentioning that fans have been demanding refunds since June 2023, yet there has been no response on that matter. It’s especially odd since the deadline for the Defendants to respond is October 4, which is practically around the corner.

As the silence from Aspyr and Saber continues, to some it may seem as if the Defendants are unbothered by it. Considering the nature of this entire project and subsequent lawsuit, the companies might have brushed this aside. This is due to the fact that cancellations of such nature are, unfortunately, rather normal in the gaming industry. Furthermore, Aspyr offered copies of Star Wars KOTOR 2 on Steam, providing an opportunity to play the game in all its glory. 

It’s still difficult to see which way this lawsuit will go, but for now, Aspyr and Saber have until October 4, 2023, to respond.
