According to this news item on Yahoo!, our beloved Feargus Urquhart--formerly of Black Isle Studios--has entered into an unholy alliance with BioWare to make all sorts of crazy games.
"BioWare is interested in establishing relationships with credible development studios that have the desire and capability to implement projects consistent with our quality expectations. Obsidian represents a perfect example of this strategy. We're very pleased to have the chance to work with teams which have a demonstrated track record of developing world class titles," commented Dr. Ray Muzyka, Joint CEO, BioWare Corp.
"A collaboration with BioWare gives Obsidian the opportunity to explore development projects on established game franchises with proven technology and brand loyalty from the fan community. This is an excellent opportunity for a new studio looking to make an immediate impact in the market," said Feargus Urquhart, CEO, Obsidian Entertainment, Inc.
And poor Feargus thought he had escaped making D&D games with a godawful engine... Well, best of luck to Mr. Urquhart! Here's hoping he can make BioWare put out a great game. For more on Obsidian Entertainment, try their website and enjoy all the juicy content there.
