Publisher Interplay has revived the defunct Black Isle Studios brand, announcing the development of a post apocalyptic strategy RPG codenamed Project PV13.

Using the whole end of the Mayan Calendar fiasco as a promo gimmick, the studio has launched a somewhat unique take on crowdfunding on their new official website, asking visitors for donations in return for insider access to the game's development process, and a memento or two.

Controversially however, the development team reportedly only features a couple of the members of Black Isle Studios that was acclaimed for the iconic 1990s RPG such as Fallout, Icewind Dale, and Planescape Torment --with key members of the old team long ago departed to found the likes of Obsidian Entertainment and InXile-- making it difficult to see justification in reviving the studio name.
Project V13 is the first planned Black Isle Studios release in years, a post-apocalyptic strategy RPG. You will create a character to represent yourself within the game world. Your character will be a hardy adventurer from a variety of backgrounds; one of the last remaining humans, a new breed mutant, or a technologically advanced cyborg. The choice is yours.

Once you have determined your character’s background, you will found your colony”. From a deserted city, a broken down military base, or even the ruins of an oil pumping station, the colony will be yours to rebuild and control.

Yeah khel they have been in legal battles with Bethesda for ages over Fallout. Pretty sure it's concluded for now.

That said, this is just a cash grab in my opinion, all the developers are gone and it really appears that Interplay is nothing more than a cash pump for the owners getting VC funding to live off.

Dodgy dodgy, wouldn't touch it!

Do you remember when the best games were made "By Gamers, for Gamers"?

Fed up with Interplay's screwie-louie management?
