If you're not familiar with WoP, here's a link:
http://forum.worldofplayers.de/forum…ral-Discussion
It's a Risen forum but the Devs appear there to answer fan questions and there are generally knowledgeable people on the site.
Over the past year or so, Devs have expressed desire to move on, hinting at a sci-fi/steampunk setting. Who knows? They could go back to Gothic. In any case, it's clear that there is a new game in the works but there is little reliable info about what.

Niiiiice, Gothic and Risen series kick ass, ok Risen 2 a bit less imo, but still, looking forward to see something new from Piranha.

PS: They really got their Gothic license back? O_o

They did.
Currently PB won't say if their next game will be Gothic style/setting/universe just that Risen 3 will end that trilogy.

Yes Risen2 had it's DLC share too, but did I ever say it's awsome thing to do towards your fans?

The only bigger letdown would be making Risen3 a phonegame. And now I expect to see that with Risen4.

I will not preorder a game that can't exist without DLC and possibly will never buy it. I'm obviously not the target audience anymore - this game is ment for ppl who bought Train Simulator.
Thankfully, today there are so many kickstarter projects to spend the money on. All without DLC.
For me the problem with Risen were the many game breaking bugs and glitches. Risen 2 was also terrible I heard in terms of gameplay and RP elements when compared to the first game.

Risen 3 is coming out in a year where we have Dark Souls 2, Original Sin, Eternity, Inquisition, Shadows of Mordor and Lords of the Fallen (plus some other RPG's I'm probably forgetting). If it wants to compete with these bigger titles then it needs to "wow" people.

Eh? I've recently replayed Risen1 and didn't find any huge bug (I do remember the release version with some very nasty bugs including gamestopper ones though, was involved in reporting them and finding a possible solution on DS forum).

DS2 is RPG? Since when? I thought it's a grinder with RPG elements.
Shadows of Mordor? That's an adventure game from Commodore 64. And a book, ofc.
Lords of the Fallen? What's that?

I'll risk skipping those three titles and buy Risen 3 - got a confirmation that if preordered we get bonus content and no future DLC is planned.

Risen 1 has been patched since joxer but like the Gothic series, had its fair share of bugs before it was finally fixed.

I don't know if you're trying to be funny with your second paragraph though. Shadows of Mordor is the open world action-RPG that's coming out in October (granted, it seems to be more of a sandbox game with character level progression) and Lords of the Fallen is another action-RPG that's inspired by Dark Souls, Metroid and Zelda that's also coming out in October.

Dark Souls 2 is an action-RPG and more than a grinder as there is NPC interaction as well as multiple endings to character's storylines depending on your actions (i.e Creighton's and Pate's questline has three different endings where you can let them fight or kill one of them yourself leading to three different outcomes). The option to say "no" and kill any NPC (and suffer the consequences for it) makes it more than just a grinder with RPG elements as I found it's easy to role-play a good or evil character.

DLC might be a problem with Shadows of Mordor and Lords of the Fallen but there's no reason to miss out on them in the long one as there might be "complete" editions if there is indeed expansions to follow.
