Neverwinter Nights Delayed?
9:04 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story
The excellent fan resource Planet Neverwinter recently spotted a change on the official Interplay page for the 3D RPG Neverwinter Nights. They now list very ambitious title as being released in the spring of 2002 instead of late this year. For some that have closely followed the game, it may be obvious that such delays might happen, simply because of the enourmous complexity of the title.
Neverwinter Nights will be a sophisticated attempt to recreate pen-and-paper AD&D on a computer screen, complete with a Dungeon Master and user-made dungeons. All of this will be done with a beautiful new 3D engine, a robust toolset, and at least three target platforms (Mac, PC, Linux, and maybe even BeOS).
Meanwhile, producer Trent Oster has recently posted that they are trying very hard to get the game out as soon as possible, as they're not looking to sweep any more E3 awards with Neverwinter Nights. Here's a clip from his forum post:
We did very well at the last two E3 show, winning a variety of awards. The team has no desire to repeat at E3 a third time. We are pushing as hard as possible to finish the game a soon as possible. We are targeting this winter for release.A new update is also promised for the official site in the near future, which will likely address such issues. We'll keep you posted as a firmer date for the game's release is revealed.
