Infogrames President Phil Harrison announced today at a publisher event that the company plans to revisit Baldur's Gate, Dungeons & Dragons
, Neverwinter Nights
and Test Drive Unlimited
-- but not until after 2009 (via Eurogamer
). Three of those franchises have had recent releases (NWN2: Storm of the Zehir
last month, TDU
and D&D Tactics
in February 2007).
As for Baldur's Gate
, a follow-up to BG2: Throne of Bhaal
has been rumored since 2001 from now-defunct Black Isle Studios. It was reportedly mentioned again by a PC Gamer UK editor as recently as January 2008.
