Red Eagle Pairs With Obsidian To Help Turn The Wheel
Way back in 2008, Red Eagle Entertainment announced they had attained the rights to make a series of games based on Robert Jordan's popular and critically acclaimed fantasy "Wheel of Time" series. Since then, we've heard almost nothing about the first project.
Well, Red Eagle has been working to bolster its creation staff. They first signed with EA Partners and Hollywood writer Chris Morgan to assist in the development process, and according to GameSpot, they've now turned to RPG veteran Obsidian Entertainment for further help. Obsidian will now work with the publisher in order to prepare these games for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC. Said Red Eagle COO Larry Mondragon:
"Although Red Eagle Games is both a game producer and publisher, as a new company, we quickly recognized that we could benefit from supplementing small in-house technical and creative teams with a proven third-party developer."
If you weren't aware, Obsidian is currently working on finishing up Alpha Protocol and Fallout: New Vegas; the team was initially founded by Black Isle Studios members back in 2003. Black Isle is well known for giving us RPG classics like the first Fallout and Planescape: Torment, so having Obsidian staff on board to help with the Wheel of Time games can't be a bad thing. We just hope we'll hear some baseline info soon...
