I felt such a rush of excitement hearing it announced, then such a crushing disappointment at PS5 exclusive, then a rush again when I found it is coming to PC.

I thought Bioware would do this? But given their recent track record I'm glad they aren't.

Shocking to see this as "console exclusive on PlayStation 5 at launch"... good to see they are crystal clear here, not trying to hide the "timed" aspect of things.

Oh I loved this game so much :) This is amazing and it is a remake (not a remaster) so will probably look gorgeous!

This is one of the best games ever made. My personal #2 all-time favourite. Everyone should play it. I hope it's faithful and as great as the original. Also, the best part of this is, EA is not involved, so I can actually get and play this. Yay!

If it's good I hope they do #2 as well. IMO KOTOR 2 was the better game.

These situations always makes me wonder. Who owns the base code? Sure the game was made under a licence, so Disney but it's Bioware's work.

Lucasfilm probably. That's my guess at least.

If it's a proper remake though then it's not really using the old code so it doesn't matter too much.
