    Tags: Feargus Urquhart; Obsidian Entertainment

    <p>In an <a href="http://www.siliconera.com/2011/03/02/obsidian-entertainment-chipping-away-at-two-original-rpgs-one-licensed-game/" target="_blank">interview with Silicon Era</a>, Feargus revealed that <strong>Obsidian</strong> is working on one licensed title and is making a go at two original titles.</p>
    <blockquote>"We are working on another licensed property right now, that has not been announced," said Feargus Urquhart, CEO of Obsidian Entertainment. "But, it&rsquo;s a licensed property when we do announce it everyone is going to go &lsquo;well, of course you had to make that game.&rsquo;"</blockquote>
    <blockquote>"We do have two other games we are proposing right now," Urquhart revealed to Siliconera. "One that we already got to a prototype stage and both are properties we&rsquo;ve come up with ourselves."</blockquote>
    <p>The article mentions that the licensed title might be the <a href="http://www.rpgcodex.net/phpBB/viewtopic.php?t=40953" target="_blank">Wheel of Time project</a>, but that doesn't sound right considering WoT was previously announced. I predict <strong>Torn II: The UnCancelling</strong>.<br /><br /><em>Thanks to Jaesun for pointing this out</em></p>

    Was under the impression that was something they recently started talking about, rather than something in development. I could be wrong.

    Better BG3 than IWD3, they've already exceeded their H&S quota with DS3.

    If I was a wide-eyed little girl full of hope and dreams I'd wish for the license project to be a V:TM game.

    If the little girl was a bit of a whore she'd tell uncle Feargus it could suck money out of the twilight/trueblood fangirls.

    Much as I'd love to see the Black Hound, Torn or a new V:tM game, I'd say the licensed projects sounds more like something along the lines of a (standalone?) Skyrim expansion.

    Big license could be Game of Thrones RPG as there's a lot of stuff planned for this IP in 2011-12
    7th tome of book in July
    RTS game
    tv series

    but much safer bet's would be ICD3 or BG3

    or some IP from SE/Eidos stable as they seem to have good terms with them for now.

    Another Fallout game, Baldur's Gate 3, NWN3, IWD 3, or maybe KOTOR3 are my guesses.


    Edit: Actually, The Neverwinter Nights trademark was just renewed by WotC last year...

    There can't be a PS:T 2. It would be too hard to live up to the original.

    Well I can't remember where I got it from but I think one is a XBLA title and the second somehow new IP , but is being only presented in it's prototyped form to possible publishers is some fantasy title called Defiance .

    Then there is the licensed IP, so waiting for E3 I guess.

    It will probably be some stupidly retarded shit, and we will all cry and moan about it in a few months.
