Black Isle Studios Interview
9:14 AM | Eddie Park | Comment on this story

The Dragon's Breath Forge has posted a short interview with Jason Manley, an artist at Black Isle Studios. Black Isle, for those unfamiliar, was the development team behind the D&D-based RPG Icewind Dale. Though short, the interview does bringing up some interesting tidbits, including the future plans of Black Isle.

When asked if there is going to be an Icewind Dale 2, Manley resonded that he would like to answer the question, but was not at liberty to discuss any projects under development. However, he did note that Black Isle is still "trying to make fun quality RPGs that look and sound great."

He also talks about Black Isle's future plans in general:

Currently we have two games in development. I am helping with all sorts of different things on one of the two...everything from the box art and the logo illustration to character and landscape art. For the project I am on, things are coming along very well. I am seeing new art daily and everything is looking as good as it possibly can.

I'd bet that you will be hearing some things about the project I am working with very soon. I have seen the website concepts and designs as well as the ad and box stuff. All are near completion. Everyone is doing a great job. What that date is...I really am not sure. Sooner rather than later I imagine.

The rest of the Q&A discusses Manley's thoughts about Icewind Dale as well as the upcoming Neverwinter Nights. For those that would like more details, the full Q&A can be perused at The Dragon's Breath Forge.
