Gothic 3 - Interview @ World of Gothic
World of Gothic has a translation of an interview originally in Czech for Gothicz.net. The conversation is with Piranha Bytes' Project Director Bjorn Pankratz and covers some general topics:
GCZ: Did you plan on Gothic being a triology from the beginning of the series?
BP: No, not at all. But after Gothic 1 and at the beginning of the second game, the term "triology" was just a thought, as things went on. Nevertheless, we still aren't stopping.
