Beamdog hasn't even released Baldur's Gate Enhanced Edition
, and you're already clamoring for Icewind Dale
? Slow down there, pardner
! It turns out that Beamdog is just as keen on tackling Black Isle's other
Dungeons & Dragons RPG, which runs on the same engine as Baldur's Gate
. Beamdog head Trent Oster noted on Twitter
that the subject of Icewind Dale
"has come up a number of times" and the company is "interested" in pursuing the project.
That said, the possibility depends on the success of Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition
. Though the project isn't officially in the works yet, Oster told a Twitter user
that Icewind Dale
would likely run on Beamdog's existing codebase, and thus would support all classes and kits available in the Baldur's Gate 2
"Throne of Bhaal" expansion.
Finally, when asked if Beamdog would consider trying its hand at taking on the Ultima series, another old-school favorite, Oster said the company approached EA
about the idea. "They told us no thanks."
