Square Enix Announces Partnership With Obsidian Entertainment for Dungeon Siege 3, coming to consoles alongside PC

Posted on
Square Enix announced today that it is partnering with Obsidian Entertainment on Dungeon Siege 3. With input from the original developer, Gas Powered Games, Obsidian Entertainment will develop the next incarnation of the Dungeon Siege franchise with Square Enix as the game's publisher. Coming for the first time to high-def home video game consoles, Dungeon Siege 3 will be available for PlayStation 3, the Xbox 360 and Windows PC.

Dungeon Siege 3 is representative of Square Enix's ongoing strategic partnerships with Western game developers and its commitment to increasing its presence in the North American market. The game will bring together the beloved aspects of the Dungeon Siege franchise with Obsidian Entertainment's expertise, to create an evolved action-RPG experience. In addition to its arrival on high-def consoles for the first time, the game will also feature an all-new co-op multiplayer mode.

Originally created by Chris Taylor and his critically-acclaimed studio Gas Powered Games, Taylor will serve as an advisor during the development of the game. Dungeon Siege 3 will seamlessly blend intuitive action gameplay and a robust RPG system in an immersive world where every decision the player makes will result in consequences.

On his involvement, Taylor comments, "It's a great pleasure to collaborate with Obsidian. They are a very talented developer who really knows what it takes to build a deep and engaging RPG experience, and I can't think of a better group to continue the Dungeon Siege series."

"It's a distinct privilege and thrill to become a part of the Dungeon Siege legacy," said Feargus Urquhart, CEO and Co-Founder of Obsidian Entertainment, Inc. "This partnership with Square Enix is a milestone for both Obsidian and the franchise, and the two companies' strengths for compelling characters and storytelling will shine throughout Dungeon Siege 3."

"With their proven track record of developing some of the most exciting and engaging games in recent memory, we are honored to be working with such a talented developer as Obsidian Entertainment," said John Yamamoto, president and chief executive officer of Square Enix, Inc. "Square Enix is committed to expanding our portfolio of games across a wide variety of genres and we are confident we will deliver the ultimate Dungeon Siege experience that fans are looking for."
