Neverwinter Nights Forums Disappear
9:29 AM | Eddie Park | Comment on this story

Forum-goers used to visiting the Neverwinter Nights forums hosted by Black Isle Studios may have received a bit of a shock recently. It seems that the NWN forums have simply disappeared from the site, leaving many forum goers wondering where the heck they went. To compound the anxiety, it's also been noted that the BioWare staff, developers of NWN, have lost their moderating status and their ID tags.


A follow-up post at the General Feedback section of the forums titled "What the hell happened to NwN area?" has yielded some interesting replies and theories on the subject. Here's an official post from an admin:

I took the forums down for reasons I cannot discuss. Sorry.
The main theory behind the madness is that the lawsuit recently filed by BioWare against publisher Interplay may have something to do with BioWare's sudden shutout. The lawsuit itself was filed for reasons regarding distribution, with Interplay being accused of withholding money from BioWare.


Nevertheless, BioWare itself announced that the suit would have no effect on the release of NWN, though it seems that some gamers are skeptical about this, given some of the forum postings on the topic. For those interested in seeing those responses as well as adding their own thoughts, be sure to head over to Black Isle's forums and check them out.
