Wizards of the Coast had already flirted with the video game industry, but it had never been released internally. The company after licenses as Magic: The Gathering or Dungeons and Dragons has decided to make the leap, and will do so with a legend of the category of James Ohlen, a former developer of Bioware and a main part of the development of some of the main classics of the firm, like Neverwinter Nights, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic or Dragon Age: Origins.
Ohlen has seen the opening of the studio he will lead on the PC Gamer portal: “I did not think I would go back to the I play so soon, but working with Wizards is a once-in- a-lifetime opportunity.Our mutual love for role-playing, world building and interactive storytelling is a perfect combination. & quot; The developer left Bioware nine months ago, a company in which I spent more than 20 years of his professional life. has not taken him long to find a new place to reinforce his talent.
What can you expect from Wizards of the Coast? The logical thing is not, since they have already specified that a video game of Dungeons and Dragons or Magic: The Gathering will not be developed. It seems that there will be closed in band to other multimedia expressions beyond the video game, so it will be waiting for news of Ohlen and his new studio Wizards is closer than ever to the videogame: its successful Magic Arena or the recent collaboration with artists like Yoshi tamano Amano are a sample of it.
