[ Game -> Update ] - More info on Company: Black Isle Studios | More info on Company: Interplay

Interplay have published a new press release which says they'll be announcing a brand new RPG very soon. Check it out:
Interplay Entertainment Corp., announced today its exciting lineup of highly anticipated game titles to be shown at this year's Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) taking place May 22 - 24 at the Los Angeles Convention Center. Interplay will be showing demonstrations of Hunter: The Reckoning, Run Like Hell, Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance and Galleon. Black Isle Studios, the renown, role-playing game (RPG) division of Interplay, will be showing (by appointment only) Icewind Dale II, and an exciting, new RPG title to be announced in the coming weeks. Interplay's booth will be located in Concourse Hall, booth #5010.
OMFG could it be Fallout 3? Well, probably not. The chances of that are around 100 / 1... place your bets. What about Fallout Fantasy, then? I'd say the odds are closer to 10 to 1 there. Or maybe it's not a Fallout game at all - 5 / 1 odds. Send all bets to Killian, but don't expect any of your cash back.

Put me down for $5 each way with Killian. Or shall I just drink $15 worth of Guinness and cut out the middle man??

I bet it's something with the word "Fallout" in the title. What are the odds on that?

Can anyone say IWD3? icon_razz
Or at least something that they can punch out quick and think they can get some money out of it. Without having to spend too much on a game to make it good.

Most definitely a Baldur's Gate/Ice Wind Dale sequel or expansion.

I don't know...

The designers have been spending some time on the BIS forums lately w/things like MCA starting polls regarding FO issues like skills and stats.

I'm not holding my breath, but it just could be...

This is the times we need prayer on this forum:

"Dear good upon all that is holy, please give us sacred Fallout 3, I'll promise to go to church every sunday, please? Pretty please with sugar on the top?"

We. Are. Screwed.

IP will NEVER make FO3, just because they hate us.

If I'm wrong, I'll quit smoking, I swear to god.
and because the second law of the universe is that Darwin must never be completely happy, I think the odds of FO3 getting made just went up

My bet is on Star Trek. $5.00
1: it's IPs strongest license
2: Even marketers that work for IP know what Star Trek is
3: It will use the fallout engine and make me wish IP would hurry up and die.
4: It will suck like a hooker in a crackhouse.

I still think it will be Baldur's Fallout Dale Trek! A post apocolyptic fantasy set in the frozen wastes of Alaska where you can have a fighter mage looking for your crashed Runabout(tm) while fighting off Demons and Mutants! Find the Golden Pantaloons and you can finally have that uber Plasma rifle with mana rounds! WooHoo!!!

Word is that the "unannounced" PC RPG by bioware is none other than Star Wars: Knights of the Republic.

It was originally slated to be X-Box exclusive, but MS doesn't consider the PC to be a competing console. Since X-Box games are programmed in direct3d anyway...

That's the rumor anyhow.

Isn't it a a console Fallout (Final?) Fantasy? I think, Interplay wants to get some more money and then to make Fallout 3 :wink:

Not really! I almost do not believe that Fallout 3 will be ever made. But isn't that a quotation from one of many Feargus' interviews? But I think, they can't make real Fallout 3. Only Tim Cain can do it! That's my opinion!

Right now the very existance of Fallout Fantasy is a rumor. That makes it highly likely that no actual work could have been done on it yet, hence it won't be at E3...

Again, all conjecture!
