This is what I was thinking too: it's kind of a scary prospect.Not many studios I’d trust with the project right now.
My guesses? InXile or Larian are up there, but I actually think it's Archetype Entertainment.
James Ohlen was Lead Designer on Kotor, Drew Karpyshn was lead writer on Kotor and their main website artwork looks quite 'Star Warsy'. They are 100% focussed on story driven RPGs and something in my gut just says "YES" when I think of Drew penning the game.
They are hiring like mad men also..... always a good sign.
