Obsidian is “Making the Next Generation of Role-Playing Games” on Their Own Next Gen Game Engine

There’s been a double dose of Obsidian (Fallout: New Vegas) news surfacing today, with the first one involving Ubisoft confirming that South Park: The Stick of Truth is still “scheduled for release in calendar 2013.” After Ubisoft’s acquisition of THQ Montreal and the publishing rights to South Park: The Stick of Truth back in January, President Yannis Mallat also said that it was planned for “calendar 2013,” so it looks like development is on track for the title. - PSLS

I hope the publisher gives em enough time to bugtest

Oh yeh it's always the publisher and not the fact obsidian games are known to be glitchy no matter the amount of time or budget

Obsidian have some of the worst Fans in the industry, they are way overrated and any mistake obsidian makes is the publishers fault. How many times before the developer actually has to take credit for the mistakes or shortcomings

Alpha protocol which is such a under rated game was in development for a long time, and on day of the release without any notice Sega delayed it for almost half an year and guess what still a game with extremely high potential but full of glitches

I am a huge obsidian fan but I go into their games thinking and read to accept the fact t will have great ideas but poorly done In a game

Nintendo hard core fans
Obsidian hardcore fans

Both fan bases can't accept the fact their favorite company could have some short comings and every thing is someone else's faulty

Isn't their next game now under UBI who are known for quality, so if South Park game is also glitchy than is it THQ or UBI not giving enough time yet again?

I think they make great games, albeit a little buggy at times. We'll see what they can do on next-gen consoles.

They are buggy but I will giv them a pass on new vegas being that it used bethesdas engine for fallout 3 lol. I loved new vegas though and I had a love/hate with alpha protocol. I hate to say it but how buggy can south park be? I am looking forward to it. Its seems a strange marriage that might work...south park and rpg.

Planescape, Kotor 2, Fallout:New Vegas.
The guys at Obsidian have been involved in the creation of some of my favorite rpgs - games in general - of all time.
I eagerly await any news of future projects they they may be planning.
