        Devs are allowed to do it because they have to submit their game to an ESG panel for review to ensure they don't commit a racism and have the required number of black women, the player might be a white male though so we don't get the benefit of the doubt

        Oh that's just because they don't want you parading around as an NPC in the event you invade someone and a player assumes you're not a real player because "Knight" is for npcs only.

          Yes anon that is exactly why they only censor the "nig" part and not the whole word "Knight". They realized that nig is the most essential part of the word Knight, you've cracked the code.
