Games Industry reports that 2K Games also known as Take-Two Interactive Software has got "co-publishing, sales and distribution rights" to The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. 2K Games will also co-publish Call of Cthulhu.
Here is some hype for your amusement:
Oblivion is the fourth title in the best-selling Elder Scrolls series, and brings the RPG genre to new heights with its combination of freeform gameplay and cutting-edge graphics. Oblivion features a 3D engine that can render stunningly realistic environments, groundbreaking AI for all characters in the game, and the same open-ended gameplay style that has made The Elder Scrolls one of the most critically acclaimed franchises of all-time.
Since its unveiling in fall 2004, Oblivion has become one of the most talked about games of 2005, with two major North American magazine cover stories to date, and has been recognized as among the most anticipated games of the year by numerous web sites and magazines.
Also, according to the official site, there is a cover story in the March issue of PC Gamer (eta Feb 8). PC Gamer sez that ES4 "offers a new hope for the RPG, and may well signal the arrival of the next sea change in the genre". Cool, more hype.
