Black Isle Studios is back

Company News - posted by Zed on Wed 22 August 2012, 17:17:54

This is certainly a... surprise.

It looks like mustache-wizard Hervé Caen has resurrected the Black Isle Studios division of Interplay. There's currently not much more than a website (, Facebook and Twitter.

This is currently what's on the website:

Our goal has always been to make the world's best RPGs. Black Isle Studios is back.​

Black Isle Studios is a legendary name to live up to. One could wonder what use Interplay would have of it unless they were planning something serious. But how serious can you be without the old Black Isle folks in the company?

It's like a dream come true. Except it's 10 years too late and Freddy Kreuger is around somewhere.

Here are some twitter comments from former Black Islanders:

Josh Sawyer: lol black isle lol
Brian Fargo: A game division is obviously only as good as the talent it employs.
Chris Avellone: I know nothing about the Black Isle Studio news announcement, doesn't involve me or Obsidian... or well, anyone that I know. ;)

Meanwhile, Trent Oster of Overhaul Games retweets the following:
Black Isles is back! Is this somehow connected to BGEE or might be?
And adds:
Excellent question.
