The Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic remake has been confirmed as a timed exclusive. This news will be music to Yoda’s dangly ears!
When the highly rumoured Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic remake was finally confirmed at the recent PlayStation showcase, it left fans wondering one major question. Is this remake a console exclusive on PS5?
This is a very fair question to ask because Knights of the Old Republic and its sequel were console exclusives on the original Xbox. So naturally, this left some Xbox gamers feeling a little deflated at the prospect of the remake being exclusive to the PS5.
Thankfully, it has been confirmed that the Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic remake is a timed exclusive for PlayStation 5. The welcoming news was confirmed by the game’s senior designer at Aspyr, Tully Ackland.
“Yes it’s a full remake, yes timed exclusive for PS5 and PC,” tweeted Ackland. In the same tweet, the developer also confirmed that Jennifer Hale will be returning to voice Bastila.
Unfortunately, details on the time exclusive deal were not revealed. So, at this time we do not know how long Xbox fans will be waiting to play the Knights of the Old Republic remake.
That all being said, I think many of us hoped that the Knights of the Old Republic remake might be a timed-exclusive rather than a full exclusive. But it’s nice to get official confirmation, nonetheless.
