BioWare and Obsidian Entertainment have announced a joint commitment to explore opportunities to collaborate in the development of PC and console games. BioWare, which recently released Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, is in the position of having more opportunities than the studio can handle by itself, according to BioWare cofounder Dr. Greg Zeschuk. BioWare is exploring ways to expand its ability to develop multiple projects.
"BioWare is interested in establishing relationships with credible development studios that have the desire and capability to implement projects consistent with our quality expectations," said BioWare's Dr. Ray Muzyka. "Obsidian represents a perfect example of this strategy. We're very pleased to have the chance to work with teams which have a demonstrated track record of developing world-class titles."
"A collaboration with BioWare gives Obsidian the opportunity to explore development projects on established game franchises with proven technology and brand loyalty from the fan community," said Feargus Urquhart, CEO of Obsidian Entertainment. "This is an excellent opportunity for a new studio looking to make an immediate impact in the market."
We'll have more on BioWare's and Obsidian's new projects as details become available.
