So basically the're no point in getting the name except for marketing purpose to get peole all excited about a "Torment 2".
And yeah no sorry, but a true spiritual successor would need Avellone and Obsidian for me.
(Not that I'm not saying inXile and Colin McComba couldn't manage to create a great game in the vein of Planescape… but the whole "Torment IP annoucement" just smells fishy to me)
