Obsidian Entertainment Takes Reins of Dungeon Siege 3

 The tenacious crew at Obsidian Entertainment may have only just recently released the contemporary spy thriller Alpha Protocol, but now it seems they're taking a step back in time with the announcement that they will be taking the reins of the Dungeon Siege franchise. To those crying change, fear not; Gas Powered Games will be on standby, acting as an adviser for the project. 

If that doesn't settle any doubt you may have, just remember A Dungeon Siege Tale; no matter what your thoughts on Obsidian's recent efforts, I think it goes without saying that they would be hard pressed to crash and burn harder than Uwe Boll.Speaking of the deal, all parties involved had quite alot of nice things to say. On his involvement, Chis Taylor comments, “It 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 can’t think of a better group to continue the Dungeon Siege series”.

“It’s a distinct privilege and thrill to become a part of the DUNGEON SIEGE legacy,“ said Feargus Urquhart, CEO and Co-Founder of Obsidian Entertainment. “This partnership with Square Enix is a milestone for both Obsidian and the franchise, and the two companies’ strengths for compelling characters and storytelling will shine throughout DUNGEON SIEGE 3.”“Square Enix is proud to partner with Obsidian Entertainment for DUNGEON SIEGE 3,” said Mike Sherlock, Co-Chief Operating Officer, Square Enix Europe. “The company has a history in making some of the most immersive and entertaining videogames and be a legend soccer hack is a perfect fit to take the franchise forward and create a new benchmark for the action-RPG.” So it seems like they're all friends. That's good, right? What are your thoughts on this blossoming relationship?
