    Publishers usually mandate developers keep quiet about their upcoming products because the publishers marketing team has a PLAN for when and if information gets disseminated to us filthy plebs.

    If you want more from PB, convince 'em to set up a KS and self publish! Otherwise, this is what we should expect. :(

    After Risen 2 I completely lost faith on them delivering a good game. They can go and fuck themselves. Such disappointment.

    They need to do a complete Gothic re-boot (since they own the trademark now) and bypass using a shitty publisher and do a Kickstarter PC/Linux/Mac game. <3

    No shit? PB wasn't shut down so of course they are developing a new game. That's what game developers do.

    I assume it is Risen 3, and I assume it sold enough to warrant a 3rd game. And will be another console developed shit.

    If the game they are making is "suddenly" PC exclusive we can move the thread to the appropriate forum.

    Gothic reboot?
    You mean, like, quest compass, hot chick to romance with, regenerating health and no stats at all, so you can use everything you find?
    I'm so fucking not cool with that.


    Fuck them. I hope after Risen 2 fail they were forced to make some happy horse farm or other bejeweled shit. No one wants their shit action rpgs after Risen 2.

    The Gothic series was really not the beez kneez you know. In fact, I would dare say it was popamole decline akshun rpg without char gen, real time, no party, etc etc.

    So yah, these guys could fold for all I care.

    On the other hand, if Risen 2's general reception is of any indication, it might also end up being half decent.

    Learning from mistakes and all that, if such is even possible anymore in this day and age.

    I loved the first two Gothics but was thoroughly disappointed with the third game.

    Risen 1 gave me hope again, as it was pretty much how I envisioned a proper Gothic sequel, save for the crappy endgame. However, they dropped the ball once again with Risen 2, so I'm not sure what to expect here.

    God... please don't be Risen 3. These guys need to get away from Deep Silver and start a (relatively) small feeder project via Kickstarter like a modern/updated/polished/expanded version of Gothic 1 in Risen's engine. Not just graphics/voice acting but make the world a bit more interesting, more side quests, maybe tweak the story a tad so you can actually play as Old Camp to 'completion,' etc.

    But... no... I'm sure it's Risen 3. Fuck.

    While that sounds nice in theory they already had a fairly solid product in Risen and completely regressed from that. They even inexplicably fucked up the melee combat which makes zero sense since all they had to do was fucking copy it.

    Yes. In theory. Still, I wouldn't give them the finger quite yet. Not before I see them making a habit of shitting their games out. PB is the sort of on/off developer of whom you never really know what comes out of it.

    Weren't the rights to Gothic supposed to revert to them, like, soon or something?
    Who holds those rights now anyway?

    "fuck this people"?
    do you mean
    "fuck this, people!" (perhaps while gesturing towards your crotch), "fuck these people (codexers)", "fuck these people (PB)", "fuck, these people (codexers)" (in a "I give up" way) or "fuck, these people (PB)" (in a "I give up" way)?

    they did not have the rights to make a Gothic-named game until recently.
    but they've always had the rights to make a Gothic-like game. but instead they made Risen 2.

    I actually think that was kinda their intention in the first place with Risen 2 - to make a game that wasn't just "hey, this is supposed to be Gothic, but we don't have the rights so we can't call it that" like they did with Risen 1. Needless to say it didn't work out because Risen 2 was mediocre at best and that's if you ignore their newly embraced DLC practice that made me boycott the game on principle at first. Now that they have the rights to Gothic back again they should probably get back to it or make Risen 3 truly its own thing.

    Hey, at least it had a neat CE.

  23. This needs to be hammered into your brains people:


    RISEN WAS MEDIOCRE AT BEST.
