According to Shack News, Obsidian has signed on for an adaption of Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time series.
Fallout: New Vegas and Neverwinter Nights 2 developer Obsidian Entertainment will join Red Eagle Games in working on its video game adaptations of Robert Jordan's acclaimed fantasy novel series 'The Wheel of Time,' the pair announced today.
"The Wheel of Time is one of the greatest and well-received fantasy series of all time," said Obsidian chief creative officer Chris Avellone. "Games set in Robert Jordan's universe have the chance to deliver on the epic storylines and the complex characters that the series is known for - and this is one of Obsidian's strengths. It's a natural fit." Obsidian was founded by veterans of Fallout and Planescape: Torment dev Black Isle.
Red Eagle Games has been planning to make a Wheel of Time MMORPG as well as tie-in games for the movies its parent company Red Eagle Entertainment is making.
Now let's all get on our knees and pray to Jesus or Allah or Satan that Obsidian won't be going anywhere near that MMORPG.
