    [​IMG] Now that IWD2 is finally set to hit the shelves shortly, does anyone of you know of any other licensed D&D computer game currently in development? :confused:

    I obviously don't know of any since I'm asking the question :rolleyes: but I'm hoping that it's simply because I'm out of the loop!!

    [​IMG] Nothing officially announced that you could put a name to, no. But that won't last long. If nothing else, Baldur's Gate 3 in one way or another should be released in the upcoming years. Anyway, wrong forum. Moving.

    Industry Leading Developer Announces New PC and Xbox Titles In Development

    EDMONTON, Alberta, Canada – August 6th, 2002 – BioWare Corp. today announced that they are working on two new games, both roleplaying games based on two new intellectual properties, created and owned by BioWare. The first of the two un-named titles in production is being developed for the Xbox, the second for the PC.

    Today, Microsoft Game Studios and BioWare Corp. are announcing that they have signed a first-party publishing partnership for the new Xbox game under development at BioWare.

    The second game, a BioWare Corp. PC roleplaying property, is under development but has not yet been presented to any publisher.

    “The partnership with Microsoft Game Studios is a perfect fit. They clearly share BioWare’s vision and commitment to quality. To be publishing BioWare’s first intellectual property - an all-new, epic Xbox roleplaying game - is a great opportunity for us. Of course, we also intend to continue our existing publisher relationships developing selected licenses”, said Dr. Ray Muzyka, Joint CEO of BioWare Corp.

    “As part of our long-term strategy, we continuously seek out premier game developers,” said Ed Fries, vice president of Microsoft Game Studios. “BioWare has repeatedly delivered compelling games. Our publishing partnership with BioWare further represents our commitment to bring only the best experiences to gamers.”

    “Our PC developers are already hard at work on our other new ‘secret’ PC roleplaying game”, said Dr. Greg Zeschuk, Joint CEO of BioWare Corp. “Creating our own universe is a great opportunity for us to deliver a game that is uniquely BioWare, and we look forward to creating an immersive BioWare RPG experience in the tradition of games like Baldur’s Gate™ and Neverwinter Nights™,” he concluded.

    *whew*

    (sweating)

    There's a good chance, that if bioware announced IwD3 strictly for Xbox (or a derivative of IwD, therof), I'd purchase an Xbox. I think I'll start praying to my Pagan godz that event never occurs...

    Xbox == chaotic evil

    Tal, are you serious with BG3??

    And the only CRPG I heard Bioware making is Star Wars KotOR, but it´s not really D&D I heard.

    :coffee:

    No, I'm just posting made up things because I have nothing better to do. Stupid question, of course I'm serious. Anyway, there's another discussion on the same subject open in Whatnots or something. And a topic about BG3, so look for that.

    The two new games from BioWare are not D&D (you would have known that if you had read the Electric Playground interview posted on the front page here). They're creating their own fantasy world now. But Black Isle on the other hand have stated that they might not be finished with Wizards of the Coast yet.

    I hope that they don't stop making D&D CRPGs, there'd be nothing new to be put on sorcerers. :(

    benny113, that's not a new game, just a total conversion made by some fans.
