Thanks to GameSpot for their two-part interview
with Obsidian Entertainment
's Feargus Urquhart, discussing his former leadership of Black Isle Studios, and his new work as a founder of Obsidian. He discusses Black Isle's creeping demise

), muses on the future of the RPG ("I think even the PC RPGers want to see that the games they play are easier to play"
), and mentions Obsidian's plans, aside from their BioWare-engine powered
, rumored but unannounced
game ("We... are actively looking for a second project [and] are also starting to work on our own internal technology."
