As you may remember from the Ripten.com interview, when asked about the possibility of Black Isle being reborn, Brian Fargo had the following to say:
BF: I talk to them all the time.
MF: Would you consider working with them, especially given their current troubles… maybe reform the Black Isle Voltron?
BF: (Obsidian) are still working on projects. It’s not like they are going away. I have a lot of love for those guys.
MF: What about the people from Interplay? Honestly, us old guys would love to see Black Isle reborn in some form.
BF: Well, if (Wasteland 2) works, it will give me a platform for doing things again. I haven’t had an engine… or I’ve had an engine with no gas. If this continues to work, and certainly we’re off to a great start—this game has got to be great—if I deliver that, I think there would be a chance to build it up again. Nothing would make me happier.
As a follow-up, Ripten have reached out to Chris Avellone for his take on that, and his answer was:
A gleam of hope or wishful thinking? You decide.
