Black Day at Black Isle

A post to the Interplay Entertainment Forums (thanks RPGDot and PC Games Online) has word from Black Isle Studios' lead designer J.E. Sawyer that he is resigning his position. Here's the post:

I figured I'd post this here before DAC and NMA got the scoop! I am resigning from my position as lead designer at Black Isle Studios. I will not discuss those reasons here, but I will state that they are my reasons. I apologize to those who may be disappointed by my decision and congratulate those who rejoice at it. My last day will be November 21st.

From this point forward, I will not be discussing any aspect of Black Isle Studios projects that may be currently in development.

Well that's it then. There are still a comple of talented guys left at Black Isle but the loss of J.E. is pretty much unrecoverable at this point. Unless Obisidian proves to be a decent dev (they certainly have the pedigree but then again so did Troika) the CRPG genre is essentially dead. Jefferson and Van Buren I will miss thee.

And enough with the Troika getting the Fallout license already. Tim Cain is the original creator, but the only 2 game's he's released in the past several years are both largely underwhelming and unfinished. I'd rather they let it die and move on.

Agreed. While I'm truly saddened that the last Fallout game will be a console 3rd person shooter the last thing I want to happen is for Saint Timmy to fuck Fallout's corpse.
