Project Eternity Could Become a Series, Says Obsidian Entertainment
Obsidian Entertainment’s next RPG, Project Eternity, may span more than a single game. If everything goes to plan, its developers would like to turn the game into a series or franchise that’ll run for, well, an eternity.
Speaking in an interview with Eurogamer, Obsidian’s Chris Avellone expressed his hope for the first game to be successful enough to become a successful series.
“The way we structured the plan is I don’t think there’s ever an instance where it would be put on hold, because as soon as the first game is completed then we’re still working on the expansion,” Avellone said. “And during that time when we’re working on the expansion, we have a good sense for how well Eternity is doing in the marketplace, and if it’s doing well then we will have a sequel going on, and if it’s not, no worries, at least we delivered what the backers were happy with.”
Avellone expressed his excitement with developing multiple of these games at once, stating that it’s something that would make the developers at Obsidian “very, very happy” as a studio, because it would be like what his previous company, Black Isle Studios, used to do.
