Obsidian may have a new game to announce at GDC 2014
Illinois’ Bradley University isn’t the first place you’d think of in conjunction with breaking game news, but that may be the case in this instance. In a profile of Bradley student Katrina Schnell, who went on to get a job with Obsidian and work on Pillars of Eternity, the concluding sentence reads:
This isn’t the only game Katrina is working on through Obsidian … that game is still a secret and will be announced at Game Developers Conference in San Francisco in 2014!
A dedicated Obsidian-watcher over at their official forums noticed this and got the speculation ball rolling. The developer is currently working on the aforementioned Pillars and South Park: The Stick of Truth (which is scheduled to ship in March.) It’s known that they are also working on a “next-gen” title of some description that uses the CryEngine, and the company has made it clear that a second Kickstarter project is not out of the question either.
One of those two is probably the “secret” game. I sincerely doubt it’s Fallout 4. Or Alpha Protocol 2, sadly.
GDC 2014 is usually around mid-March, so that’s when we’ll find out for sure.
