Obsidian’s Avellone on Black Isle Revival: “I Have No Idea”
Black Isle Studios, developer of Fallout 2 and Icewind Dale, was recently revived after having kicked the bucket in 2003, with only two members from the original team returning. Many former Black Isle members went on to form or join Obsidian Entertainment, but Obsidian is apparently uninvolved with this revival.
Obsidian creative director Chris Avellone worked at Black Isle as a senior designer, and speaking with Joystiq, revealed that he’s completely in the dark about the new Black Isle, saying, “I have no idea. I do not know. I’m very curious.” He did, however, state that he “would like to know more,” and that, “If it means more RPGs, great. I love RPGs.”
