Is Lord Nasher Alagondar putting out a notice for more hardy adventurers to hazard the lands of Faerun? Or even the Rashemen, for that matter.
Atari, the owner of the hardcore RPG franchise Neverwinter Nights, has registered a number of domain names that pertain to Neverwinter, with creative germs such as playneverwinter.com, saveneverwinter.com, neverwintergame.com, and they all come in amazing hyphenated flavours too!
Domain registrations are fairly representative of game announcements in themselves, but there’s another clue we have here: according to Gen Con 2010, Atari is getting ready to announce a D&D-related game, but doesn’t feel comfortable talking about it yet. Not surprising, they probably don’t have a “mind-blowing” and “awesomesauce” CG trailer to show off to everyone yet.
As for who is developing this one, the best we have is speculation. According to super-accurate Wikipedia, Obsidian Entertainment still has one unannounced project in the works, and it could very well be Neverwinter Nights 3, as the studio has had a good deal of success with NWN2 and its three expansions. Okay, maybe it’s just that I want Obsidian to make a Neverwinter Nights 3 in the hopes we get something as good as Mask of the Betrayer.
