The publisher Wizards of the Coast is really accelerating and wants to make Dungeons & Dragons even bigger. In addition to Baldur's Gate 3 and Dark Alliance, an open-world role-playing game from Hidden Path Entertainment is in the works. The Otherside Entertainment studio is also developing a title for D&D.
D&D gets even more games
Otherside Entertainment is known for the action role-playing game Underworld Ascendant, which unfortunately could not convince in tests. System Shock 3 is currently being developed under the direction of designer legend Warren Spector. However, there were a few problems here last year. It became known that many employees have left the studio and the Chinese games company Tencent is now involved in some way in the development of the sequel to the well-known action role-playing game series. How it is currently with System Shock 3 is still unclear.
However, it has now been announced that Otherside is developing a new game on Dungeons & Dragons. What it is about is not known. Is it an RPG or something else? It also seems a bit strange that Otherside is tackling such a project alongside System Shock 3, as the company had financial problems and there were few developers left in the company. Maybe both the Daeal with Tencent with System Shock 3 and now with Wizards of the Coast have again brought enough money into the coffers.
After the disappointing Underworld Ascendant, the studio now has to prove that it can develop really good games. Incidentally, Wizards of the Coast is planning more video games for D&D – and also for the card game Magic: The Gathering.
