Developer Aspyr is “walking away from that real-time, turn-based combat and doing something more along the lines of action combat.

How that'll manifest itself is anyone's guess, but it's sure to make fans of the original a little uneasy, especially given the developer's history of 1:1 ports as opposed to reimaginings or remakes on this scale.

That said, Aspyr has reportedly lured some developers from Bioware to help maintain the authenticity of the original.
