Obsidian Entertainment and Square Enix are to bring this classic action RPG series to Xbox360, PS3 and PC, with help from the series’ original creator, Chris Taylor.
It feels like it has been a long time coming, but this next installment in the Dungeon Siege series should be worth the wait. I have fond memories of playing the original Dungeon Siege and, although being developed by Obsidian Entertainment rather than the original Gas Powered Games, the inclusion of Chris Taylor as an advisor will hopefully ensure that the Dungeon Siege 3 is a worthy successor.
On his involvement, Taylor comments, â€œIt has been a great pleasure to collaborate with Obsidian. They are a very talented developer who really knows what it takes to build a deep and engaging RPG experience, and I canâ€™t think of a better group to continue the Dungeon Siege seriesâ€.
â€œItâ€™s a distinct privilege and thrill to become a part of the DUNGEON SIEGE legacy,â€œ said Feargus Urquhart, CEO and Co-Founder of Obsidian Entertainment. â€œThis partnership with Square Enix is a milestone for both Obsidian and the franchise, and the two companiesâ€™ strengths for compelling characters and storytelling will shine throughout DUNGEON SIEGE 3.â€
â€œSquare Enix is proud to partner with Obsidian Entertainment for DUNGEON SIEGE 3,â€ said Mike Sherlock, Co-Chief Operating Officer, Square Enix Europe. â€œThe company has a history in making some of the most immersive and entertaining videogames and is a perfect fit to take the franchise forward and create a new benchmark for the action-RPG.â€
