We’ve famous for some time now that Obsidian Entertainment, the studio behind classic roleplaying games for example KOTOR II: Sith Lords, Neverwinter Nights 2, Fallout: New Vegas, South Park: The Stick of Truth, Pillars of Eternity and Tyranny, have been focusing on a fairly large scale RPG.
This project, led by Tim Cain and Leonard Boyarsky of Fallout and Vampire: The Masquerade C Bloodlines fame, has been confirmed yesterday to get created by Take-Two’s completely new label Private Division.
With Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick mentioning a while ago that every one Take-Two games to come would expect “recurrent consumer spending” much more than game sales, fans had a little concerned about Obsidian’s new project. However, the developers were quick to pay this condition within the official capacity.
We’re extremely pumped up about our upcoming RPG, and we know you might be too. We wish we can easily let you know supposed to be about it right now- but we will hold off through to the time meets your needs. Might know about did want to speak about had been a question many you happen to be raising: “Will this upcoming game feature any loot boxes and other microtransactions?”
The solution is simply: “no.”?No microtransactions, of any kind, in your game.
We also were going to say one word about our partnership with?Private Division, our publisher on this title. Not even close to “pushing” us to position anything – microtransactions or otherwise not – into our game, Private Division has long been incredibly supportive of our vision, our creative freedom, additionally, the process where we work to make RPGs. They’ve been fantastic partners, and we’re extremely excited to do business with them through release, to position everything we know is going to be a tremendous game into countless hands as it can be.
As always, thanks a lot to your support. We know we couldn’t do might know about do without our fans, and now we would love to find out which we put you guys first in just about every decision we make.
It is unclear yet exactly what RPG Cain and Boyarsky are actually making, particularly regarding the setting, although the two said within a recent interview that fans are able to find Obsidian’s trademark reactive worlds and humor while playing it.
We’ll need to wait some years, though, as not one of the games announced to remain among Private Division’s first wave of releases will ship before Q2 2019.
