    <p><a href="http://www.computerandvideogames.com/article.php?id=271508" target="_blank">CVG reports</a> that Obsidian's New Vegas team moved on to the next project already.</p>
    <blockquote>
    <p>Senior designer Chris Avellone explained that most of the New Vegas team took it's holiday earlier this month, and now it's all "ramped up" for the next big thing.<br /><br />"Almost everyone who was on New Vegas was slated to move over to another project within a week or two after it went out, so they're all getting ramped up on other projects now," he said. "We're keeping them pretty busy."<br /><br />"We've been filling vacation requests from everyone so it's been building up for a while," he added. "We actually ended up doing a lot of that earlier this month and last month so everyone's coming back now and getting into the swing of things."</p>

    I really hope this isn't for Dungeon Siege or something like that.

    Hopefully they are focusing on the Wheel of Time crpg now. It better be turnbased.

    Nah, that's been going on a while already. It really will be interesting to see what they are doing next though, we know it isn't a sequel to anything they did before. Should be something out of left field like Dungeon Siege 3.

    Bah. Dating sim would be the best way to implement WoT. If you must insist, you can implement a strategic/RPG layer on it.

    The butthurt will be GLORIOUS!

    I don't think that's possible. It could only be an incline as nowhere else to go.

    You didn't play too many games did you?

    Also, Arcanum turn-based combat > Fallout 3 + New Vegas combat

    What he means is that Haba's prediction is correct: The better things go for Obsidian, the more retarded they are likely to become. Damn pity if this is the way things go, ever further into decline. I was hoping the fanboys might be correct for once.

    Your ignore list.
    And camera too. Never underestimate Obshitian's capacity of delivering the most awkward cameras conceivable. It wouldn't surprise me one bit if they made the whole game on the renowned NWN2 engine.

    Arcanum's TB was bad but not horrible. RT was an abomination, though.
