Project RPB Unveiled

RPG Vault's Project RPB Q&A chats with Michael Hoge about Project RPB, an upcoming fantasy-themed RPG in the works at Piranha Bytes after it turned out that the studio also known as Pluto 13 is no longer working on the Gothic series (story). The game is to be published by Deep Silver, following-up on recent reports that they were working on a collaboration with Piranha Bytes (story). They attempt to link to the preliminary RPB Webpage, which is actually here, but vexingly its Flash design makes prevents a web-based translation of its German text. The conversation introduces the game, but things are a bit vague for now. Here's a bit:

Project RPB will be a fantasy action RPG with a strong emphasis on a complex storyline, which takes place in a believable setting. To achieve this goal, we have been working on a setting for quite some time now, before we even started to design the actual characters, creatures and levels. Thus we have a very strong background to fit everything in, and there will be very few quests or characters that do not have anything to do with the bigger picture.

Everything builds upon certain points in the story, where the main events and turning points take place, and so, we are able to create a dense atmosphere. In addition, we are trying to top it off with some riddles, traps, an easy to understand skill system, and various player interactions like forging a sword or writing a magical scroll.

Am I right in thinking that RPB does in fact stand for "RPG in the works at Piranha Bytes"?
