    Let’s not jump the gun on assuming this will be a watered down faux-RPG. It’s almost definitely a multi platform action RPG, BUT:

    New interview with Boyarsky at PCgamesN:

    https://www.pcgamesn.com/leonard-boyarsky-new-obsidian-game-vampire-making-of-diablo-3-story

    He says it will be a hardcore RPG with lots of C&C. He says it’s got a lot of focus on the story “and how you play the story.” He describes Obsidian’s recruitment process as “hey, come make another game that you create from scratch, a hardcore RPG in the Troika/Obsidian style.”

    And, “it’s pretty obvious that I’m insane and dedicated to making difficult, difficult games with lots of choices and consequence.”

    That makes it sounds like something more in the vein of New Vegas or Bloodlines. I think if it was a huge departure from what he did with Tim Cain before, he would be saying very different things. You don’t get two thirds of the Troika band back together if you’re not planning to make something that has a lot in common with Fallout 1/Troika. Plus, for the Sawyer/Obsidian detractors, everything Leonard says makes it sound like the new game is all him and Tim (also Tim Cain looks a little like Orson Welles as he gets older and gradually expands).

    PS. What did people think of Diablo 3? I don’t think the new Obsidian title will be anything like it. But apparently Boyarsky was involved in the world building and making it more story focused/lore intensive, which he says was probably a mistake for Diablo. Kind of makes me want to try it, though. Should I bother?

    They said it's gonna be an in-depth, reactive RPG which fans of his old games would like. Regardless of the combat system and other systems implemented, that's reason enough to be optimistic.

    I think we can be optimistic about the world the duo is going to create, but combatwise.... eh, I don't know.

    Activision owns the rights to Arcanum so a sequel can't happen, but they could release a spiritual successor in a setting that's just Arcanum with the serial numbers filed off. It's not gonna happen though, since Arcanum steampunk has been ruined by hipster faggots gluing gears to top hats and is now firmly in its grave.

    Think positively, it is well known the the square root of the amount of belly fat times calories consumed is equal the incline factor. This must mean it will be a very, very incline game.

    Just seeing the word "Troika" again like it's something alive and active (from a certain point of view) made me smile.

    It's a none-too-subtle reminder of the greatest game Obsidian has ever developed; that's all. Best not to read too much into it.

    It can't possibly be a Fallout-related hint, because the new game is being published by the titular new indie publishing label, which is a subsidiary of Take-Two Interactive. Bethesdumb and Zionmax would never allow a rival to publish a Fallout-related game.

    That's probably why you got a retarded rating, but I wouldn't worry about it. We don't expect game developers to actually be smart or anything, so you're fine.

    Bethesda will never EVER let anyone outside of their control write their games again. FNV is an aberration from the quartet of Morrowind/Oblivion/Skyrim/Fallout3, and Fallout 4 is returning to form.

    And everyone knows that ultimately, the reason was because they saw how shit their own work was.
