Do you like Dungeons and Dragons? So you will be served with the announcement of this new AAA game on the famous license.
So, a major new Dungeons & Dragons game is in the works at Invoke Studios, the renowned developer of Dungeons & Dragons: Dark Alliance. At the head of this new project we do not find just anyone since it is Dominic Guay, a veteran of Ubisoft who worked 20 years in the company. He notably participated in big projects like Splinter Cell before becoming the main producer of Watch Dogs and its sequel.
A AAA Dungeons and Dragons game
For the moment the details are meager as explained by our colleagues from Eurogamer. The game has the ambition to be a AAA, surely with the budget that goes with it and it should run under the Unreal Engine 5 graphics engine. So you can be perfectly comfortable with the times (2024/2025). We can also learn that Guay is currently working with a team of 80 people on the projectwhich will then grow to 200 employees by 2025. Which is pretty huge for this type of game.
He further states:
We have the largest and most popular brand of Dungeons & Dragons fantasy role-playing games. Such a brand, with 50 years of history behind it, inspires developers and gives us enormous creative freedom. We focus on high quality triple A games and we will have the means to achieve our goals.
In short, there are therefore big ambitions for this role-playing game. It remains to be seen what this will give controller (or keyboard) in hand.
