Obsidian is making NWN2 w/ Atari, no Bioware, although since they made the first they will have some role apparently. Slashdot.org has info I think

That's not a good thing...

What's Obsidian's track record?

Bioware is making Dragon Age, a game that will be similar in style to NWN, and it should be great now that they are no longer limited to their license and crap with Atari.

Dragon Age doesn't use the D&D ruleset though. Not saying that that alone will make it a bad game, but using D&D gives you a very complete package: monsters, weapons, places, people, etc. When you have to make it all up yourself it's hard to get all the detail. I am looking forward to it though, I hope NWN2 turns out well too.

"Looks like Atari has just announced Neverwinter Nights 2, to be developed by Obsidian Entertainment, the same ex-Black Isle folks who are making Star Wars: Knights Of The Old Republic 2 in conjunction with BioWare. However, it's 'scheduled for release in 2006', so we've got a while to wait." A post on the Obsidian forums has a single piece of concept art, and it's confirmed that "[Original developers] BioWare will provide tools, technology, and game assets from the original Neverwinter Nights as well as lend creative input and oversight to the development process."
