Ben Smedstad heeft op FGN wat geschreven over de toekomst van RPGs.The RPG genre itself is starting its next evolution, the next big push," Smedstad said from BioWare's Canadian development headquarters. "It's been stagnant for a while, but now it's starting up again and it's great to see these other games out there help push the front. I personally would love to be a part of that for many years to come, on whatever title or whatever project I happen to be on. I can't say for certain, because I don't make all the decisions about what's coming up in the near future, but, if there's a Baldur's Gate product in the future, you'll probably see me working on it.
When asked if a release of Baldur's Gate III in the future was likely, Smedstad responded, "Yes, if Baldur's Gate II does well financially, and people enjoy it and want to buy it, then we'd be silly not to do another one."
BioWare is not sitting back and daydreaming of the future though, as Smedstad promises that the new Shadows of Amn title surpass the numerous benchmarks set by the original Baldur's Gate. "We want to make a game that we ourselves are playing -- none of us would be satisfied with sticking a 'II' on a Baldur's Gate box and calling it Baldur's Gate II," he said.
