    Good lord, I hope not.
    I wouldn't want to play some sequel based on something that destroyed twenty years of world building, just to make some money on new sourcebook sales.
    I enjoyed the '2.5' edition rule set used in the original games. It still had the old school feel.
    Maybe I'm just getting old.

    Yeah, well the 4th indeed brought a lot of changes, considering it moved the timeline by more than a century compared to 3.5.

    Still, maybe they would stick with 3.5 (Neverwinter Nights 2).

    I think Bioware sold the license to Atari and they lost it to Hasbro so don't get your hopes up for a sequel.

    Uh, considering the setting itself has been owned by Hasbro (through Wizards of the Coast) since 1998 (when Baldur's Gate was launched), I don't see how it makes a sequel more or less likely.

    Bioware sold it to Atari. when Atari published Neverwinter Nights 2 Hasbro sued and won. Bioware is owned by EA now. a sequel by Bioware will never happen with Dragon Age III in development.

    I love absolute statements.... they're so much fun....



    I hate the 4th edition, didn't think much of 3.5, but this might be a way to introduce new players to the AD&D world...

    If it's anything like the second I'll pass on that.

    Why exactly can't a studio develop multiple games at once though? Or after each other?

    How can you tell they are updating the site? Wouldn't that cause it to 404?

    I doubt they are updating.. it's probably a whole new site.. I would think.. You know? :toast:

    EDIT: They should have had a redirect setup to send you to a temp site.. So, this doesn't happen... Because nothing ever goes smoothly all the time.. Shit happens...lol
