Black Isle Studios (sort of) returns

At its late-90s peak, developer and published some of the finest RPGs ever made. They were the team behind Fallout 1 and 2, Planescape: Torment and publisher of both Baldur’s Gate titles. The studio closed in 2003, but now (in name at least) appears to have been revived by .

Of course, when Black Isle originally closed, a lot of the employees ended up at … where they still are today. Brian Fargo, who also worked at Black Isle, is busy with his own Wasteland 2 project.

According to Obsidian’s Chris Avellone, “I know nothing about the Black Isle Studio news announcement, doesn’t involve me or Obsidian… or well, anyone that I know.”

The revived website (which was down at the time of writing) is registered to Interplay.
