Dungeons & Dragons Online may have been a misfire, but there's a new third-person, open-world RPG set in the beloved fantasy universe on the horizon — and unlike the aforementioned MMO, it's shaping up to be a primarily single-player experience. That's right, the D&D game series is seemingly going back to basics.
"The cat is finally out of the bag! We're making a AAA, third-person, open-world fantasy RPG that will be taking place inside the Dungeons & Dragons franchise," Narrative Director Whitney "Strix" Beltrán said on Twitter. Sadly, she has yet to share any concrete info about the title's release window and target platforms.
The Dungeons & Dragons production is being developed at Hidden Path Entertainment, the Bellevue-based co-creators of 2012's Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and 2013's Age of Empires II: HD Edition.
Although it'll be a good while before we learn more about Hidden Path's next big thing — as it's in the early stages in development — those who just can't wait to play a fresh Dungeons & Dragons video game should keep an eye on Larian Studios' long-awaited Baldur's Gate 3, which is now available via Steam Early Access.
