    [​IMG]@Game Developers Wizards of the Coast has formed a new AAA focused game studio called Skeleton Key which is being headed by the former head of Bioware Austin.


    Wizards of the Coast, the role-playing game company behind Dungeons & Dragons and Magic: The Gathering, has opened a new game studio called Skeleton Key.

    The Austin-based studio will be overseen by former BioWare Austin boss Christian Dailey, who'll serve as studio head. Its first game has been described as a "triple-A" project, although it's unclear what platforms or release window the studio is targeting. On its website, the studio states it wants to create titles that use "immersive gameplay" to tell "unique stories."

    "[I'm] excited to be starting this new adventure with the company that has created so many of my favorite toys and games growing up," said Dailey, who'll also be taking on the role of vice president at Wizards of the Coast, in a press release. "We are looking forward to growing our studio team with more talented creators who share our passion."

    Let's hope Icewind Dale 3 and Planescape: Torment 2 will come. :)

    God, no. Even if they could get a license for those, they need to leave the classics alone. It's bad enough that Larian is piggybacking on the fame of Baldur's Gate for their "sequel". :shame:

    Plus, BioWare Austin had literally nothing to do with any of the classic games; It was created much later to work on SW:ToR. In fact, BioWare as a whole had nothing at all to do with Icewind Dale and Planescape: Torment. They only worked on Baldur's Gate and Neverwinter Nights.
