Obsidian Entertainment - Making Dungeon Siege 3 - a discussion @ 1UP's RPG Blog
As we recently posted, Obsidian Entertainment is making Dungeon Siege III for Square Enix. This has inspired an article on 1UP's RPG Blog, the Grind, called The Odd Couple.
It deals with how they think they game might be, especially since George Ziets of Mask of the Betrayer fame apparently is the creative lead for this game:
In Square Enix, it seems like Obsidian is getting a dependable partner that will give them the support they need to see their ambitious ideas through to the end. This is all conjecture of course, but Square Enix's recent third-party projects have all turned out pretty well. So between Fallout New Vegas and Dungeon Siege III, it's now up to Obsidian to prove that they have what it takes to make good on the promise of their ideas.
At the moment, much of Obsidian's "A" team seems to be tied up with New Vegas, including top designers Chris Avellone and Josh Sawyer. But with George Ziets serving as the creative lead, Dungeon Siege III shouldn't be lacking for interesting ideas.
