Arkane on Arx Fatalis and the Future

In an interview with Gamasutra, Arkane's Raphael Colantonio reflected on the development of Arx Fatalis.

"I think it was the most true game that we've worked on and done," says Colantonio. "It was exactly what I wanted to do. There were too many bugs, I know that. But still I am very proud of it." At a time when games were made by teams of 30 people or more, Arkane created Arx Fatalis with only nine people. "We sweated blood on that one."​
Very inspiring. Too bad they spent the next seven years not making anything worth playing. But all is not lost as they have another blood-sweating opportunity on the way.

"Wait for next announcements," says Colantonio. "It's gonna be exactly what we want to do. Not a compromised, marketed game. We've been lucky to find a publisher that supports us and understands this kind of game and is supportive of them. The people who like the kind of games that we like are going to be really excited.

"There are companies that do first person shooters," he continues. "There are companies that do sports games. We do first person immersive games with depth. That's what we do.​
