Star Wars Fans Just Got The Remake They've Been Waiting For

One of the best "Star Wars" games of all time is making a big return, as the PlayStation Showcase 2021 livestream has officially confirmed that "Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic Remake" is in production.

While fans finally learned Aspyr Media might be working on the "Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic" remake earlier this year, the project had since gone silent without any further word from the now-confirmed developer. While the company has a history with both the "Star Wars" license and "Knights of the Old Republic" itself — having brought the beloved RPG to mobile platforms — fans can be forgiven for being a little wary.

After all, rumors about a remake of the classic "Star Wars" game have been circulating since early 2020 at least, but that was before EA lost its exclusivity agreement to use the "Star Wars" license (via PC Gamer). While returning the LucasFilm Games name to future projects was great news for fans, it put projects like the long-awaited remake in question.

There is still plenty that fans don't know about the remake, but at least now they can rest assured that it is in development and headed their way. Here is what PlayStation and Aspyr Media have revealed about "Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic Remake."

Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic Remake is a timed exclusive

The long-awaited remake of the Bioware classic "Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic" received a prime position during the latest PlayStation Showcase livestream. In fact, after a brief intro and opening remarks from Sony Interactive Entertainment CEO Jim Ryan, the remake was the first game featured.

The clip, now available on Youtube, revealed that Sony Interactive Entertainment will be publishing the game in partnership with LucasFilm Games and, as expected, it is under development by Aspyr. Viewers first hear an ominous voiceover regarding the illusion of peace and the power of the Sith before a hooded figure raises its red lightsaber to illuminate the iconic mask of the Sith Lord Revan. After Revan is revealed, the full title is given, which appears to be "Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic Remake." 

The trailer also notes that the game will be "A legend remade for PS5." However, one word that is not seen in the announcement is "exclusive." Immediately following the release of the trailer, Aspyr Media's Ryan Treadwell confirmed in a post on the official PlayStation Blog that "Knights of the Old Republic Remake" will be a timed exclusive for the PS5. Luckily for fans on other consoles, the highly anticipated remake will be heading to other platforms after an unspecified window of time.
