    Swen probably did a bump and hired them on impulse after seeing McComb's rectum tweets.

    I have no idea what Larian want to accomplish by hiring bad writers?The original game was a success regardless of the bad writing and hiring mediocre sjw writers won't accomplish anything.In fact hiring so many sjw may probably ruin larian considering they will start infecting and influencing every corner.

    If Larian wants to make more money while saving cost all they have to do is hire some proper designers and fire most of the writers.Nobody cares about the writing but the game play is starting to get worse from the original and that needs to be fixed.

    If they make a game based on Forgotten Realms, will the IP to the game series end up belonging to Latian or to WotC? Because I don't think Bioware owns the right to Baldur's Gate games if I am not mistaken, otherwise Beamdog would have answered to them instead of WotC, no?

    WotC most likely. Recent D&D computer games (you know the idle game and the adventure board game) specify "© Wizards of the Coast LLC."

    "AAA experience"

    [​IMG]

    (Come to think of it, many of Quebec developers have experience of making AAA games at Ubisoft and others.)

    Also, looks like he removed the tweet about the first job, whatever it was.

    Thi4f was made by a group of all AAA tards, unfortunately, working at an Ubisoft drone factory didn't make the tards less tards.

    They are developing at least 2 games. A Sequel to Original Sin 2 and maybe a new action RPG like Divinity 2.

    I guess "a project" not necessarily means a game, but probably some kind of fun video series?

    He's visiting Ghent HQ, btw.

    That September 14th is the game's release date last year, not a future event.

    Looks like it's a documentary. I'm pretty sure this is Larian HQ office:



    Also Larian writer Char mentioning the director of documentary:

    Larian Studios on Belgian local TV news: https://www.vrt.be/vrtnws/nl/2018/07/04/belgische-game-divinity-is-wereldwijd-bijzonder-populair/

    It's very short, and I don't understand Dutch but getting few keywords, it doesn't sound like there's new info.

    But... cameramen are our friends. Those motion capture and facial animation models don't quite look like D:OS 2, do they? [​IMG]

    edit: some captures:

    (My faboulous imagination: they are making two games. One is isometric turn-based RPG that continues the D:OS formula i.e. another slam dunk. The other one is a third-person action RPG that retains environmental interaction of the isometric games to some extent.)

    Seems likely. I would also imagine that one is another Divinity game (Divinity 3?) and the other is a new IP. But which is which?

    Well Divinity 2 (Dragon Knight Saga) probably has sold pretty well, but in terms of core fan base with strong expectations, I think D:OS series has one much larger than the one of the original Divinity games. I think Divinity games probably continue to be turn-based.

    Those faces and animation look good much better then anything we have seen in D: OS2 , they have now several studios all over the world so they should be able to make more then 1 game at a time.
    They could reuse a lot of the core mechanics and assets from D: OS 2 for a sequel since the game sold extremely well. And they're main studio in Ghent makes something bigger hopefully Ego Draconis 2. It would be certainly interesting to see them make more mainstream games again.

    Or they go all out with Original Sin 3 and give it a 3rd person perspective like Neverwinter Nights and Dragon Age with fully animated NCP dialogue but keep the turn based combat.

    By the way the report said that Originals Sin 2 has now sold almost 2 million copies.
