Obsidian to develop NWN 2
Development Info - posted by Whipporowill on Wed 4 August 2004, 19:08:20Tags: Neverwinter Nights 2; Obsidian Entertainment
According to this piece over at Gamespot, Obsidian Entertainment are the ones developing the sequel to Bioware's Neverwinter Nights. Here's some nibblets from Feargus "Particle Effects" Urquheart amongst others:
In a statement, Obsidian CEO Feargus Urquhart expressed his gratitude at taking over the venerated franchise. â€œBioWare and Atari created an immense community of players attracted by both the immersion of an interactive gaming experience and the ability to create their own pen-and-paper styled modules. Neverwinter Nights changed the very nature of role-playing games,â€ he said. Atari executive producer John Hight was also excited, saying, â€œFeargus and his team at Obsidian Entertainment are the best people on the planet to take up where BioWare left off and bring this great game to new level."
On a related note - the Obsidian message boards were recently down for maintenance. Hardly a coincidence I'd say, considering the certain influx of about half the Biowarian fanboys. Enjoy!
