    [​IMG]Feargus Urquhart confirmed in an interview with GamePressure.com that Pillars of Eternity II is in production. The full interview will be available later but GamePressure shared some choice excerpts.

    During the Digital Dragons 2016 conference that is happening now in Kraków, we got a chance to meet amazing developers from all around the world. We also sat down with Feargus Urquhart, the CEO of Obsidian Entertainment, known for his work on Fallout series, Planescape Torment, Icewind Dale or the critically acclaimed Pillars of Eternity. Obsidian also has another project in development - Tyranny - but Feargus said that they're not ready to talk about it in more detail. However, during our interview with Obsidian's CEO, we found out that the studio is already working on Pillars of Eternity II.
    We were talking about the general idea of crowdfunding Obsidian's games, Feargus said that they thought about crowdfunding Tyranny, but decided to do it on their own. However, they're most probably going to turn to Kickstarter to crowdfund Pillars of Eternity II, and that's when Feargus shared what they're currently involved on:

    Obviously, as you've probably guessed, we're starting to move forward on [Pillars of] Eternity II. That is probably something that we want to look at [in terms of crowdfunding]. I think people felt like we delivered on our promise, and then that felt like we could go with Eternity II and people would support us again, because they trust us.

    When we asked him about an official announcement of Pillars of Eternity II, that's what he had to say:

    Eternity II is not announced, [but] it seems silly for me not to acknowledge it, though. If someone asks "Are you working on it?", I respond "Well, wouldn't you work on it?". So then they say "So you must be working on it", and then I'm like "Well, yeah".

    That second quote came up when we were talking to Feargus about everything that Obsidian is currently involved in. There's Armored Warfare, Tyranny, the card game Pathfinder, and Pillars of Eternity II. However, Obsidian's CEO also mentioned that there's a small group of people within the studio that's working on something completely new, but he didn't want to share any details regarding that yet. What's worth noting, though, is that the names of Tim Cain and Leonard Boyarsky came up while talking about this. Feargus didn't say that directly, but he pointed that it might have something to do with a prototype using Unreal Engine, that he mentioned during his podcast with Game Informer.​
