    Cool Black Isle Studios being resuscitated by Interplay

    Black Isle Studios being resuscitated by Interplay




    Black Isle Studios is getting resuscitated by Interplay, according evidence found via various social media outlets and a webpage.

    Black Isle was the developer behind such beloved RPG titles such as Icewind Dale, Planescape: Torment, and of course Fallout.

    Here’s a website pointing to the reincarnation, as well as a Twitter account and a Facebook page which was created on August 13.

    Eurogamer notes the website is registered to Interplay and Herve Caen.

    inXile Entertainment’s Brian Fargo, who co-founded Interplay, said via Twitter: “I just read that Interplay is bringing back Black Isle. Hmmm… Not enough info for me to comment.”

    Another Black Isle co-founder, Feargus Urquhart moved on from the studio to form Obsidian Entertainment, and Chris Avellone who works there as well told Eurogamer:

    “[This] doesn’t involve Obsidian at all. No idea what it’s about. I wasn’t aware anything beyond the name was left at Interplay.”

    Unless they bring back the people, it's nothing more than a marketing ruse.
