So its been almost 2 years, and yet not a single cRPG has even been announced. Are there even still plans to make any, or is oblivion sticking to just card games.

I don't think they see the money in making a Pathfinder CRPG, plus they risk over saturating the market with the same copy and paste games with Pillars, Pillars 2, Tyranny, Torment  (not obsidian)

then there was no reason to do a paizo partnership in the first place, all the pathfinder fan want a pf crpg, if they don't get one, mind as well cancel the partnership

Apparently it's here: https://owlcatgames.com/

 

looks really unimpressive though... and knowing my.com.. I wouldn't be surprised if this just becomes another Pathfinder Online mess.

Paizo has a brief description of the Kingmaker Adventure Path on their website.

Certainly could be a interesting game.  Here's hoping for the best.

ok, first off YAAAAAAY CRPG IN PATHFINDER, secondly, WHY ISNT OBSIDIAN DOING IT, THEY GOT THE PARTNERSHIP, AND THIS IS WHAT ANYNE WHO ACTUALLY PLAYS PATHFINDER WANTED, NOT A SILLY MOBILE GAME FOR CASUALS.

Well, first of all I personally would not be interested in Pathfinder rpg, I am more interested to see how Pillars of Earth 2 will do. And am more interested in "silly mobile game" :)
It is matter of taste and resources. There Are so Many good rpg games around that I have not time to play them all, but there Are very few good light mobile games that Are interesting and offer some rpg feeling. And at this moment Obsidian does not have work force to do both Pillars and Pathfinder. Maybe when Pillars 2 have been done They will start Pathfinder rpg, who knows. It depends on do They have rights to rpg Also or only to the Pathfinders adventures. I supose that They only have that lisence. Otherwice we most propably would be waiting pathfinder rpg instead of Pillars 2. IMHO

I could definitely go for a Starfinder (thanks to Gromnir for that) game since that'd be something different

Know Direction Lisa Stevens says Chris Avellone was trying to talk her into a Pathfinder CRPG since he was with Obsidian. He arranged a meeting with who would be Owlcat at GenCon 2016. They presented a "vertical slice" demo in March for Paizo to play. Paizo staff is super excited, especially with how the flavour of Golarion comes through.

Know Direction Combat will have multiple modes: Core Rules (similar to tabletop Pathfinder but real time, not turn based), adapted rules (less deadly for less experienced, crits deadliness reduced), story mode (really simple combat), Iron man (tougher monsters, just one save that overwrites itself so accept your mistakes), and custom (for example, core rules with reduced crits).

Know Direction Story: Chris Avellone said Lisa Stevens drove home the point that Kingmaker is near and dear to her heart, having run it multiple times. He understood this to mean "Don't -bleet- this up"."

Know Direction The aim for exploration is to make the player feel in control. One major way it will be different from other CRPGs is camp, where you have to choose a safe place, assign hunting and guard duties, and interact with the NPCs

Know Direction On a character level, your decisions affect your alignment, and your alignment affects how NPCs interact with you, including your party companions who all have their own agendas.

Know Direction Mass combat will only be in the game if the Kickstarter campaign spectacularly over funds. It requires that many original assets.

They haven't solved all of the OGL issues, but they've found work around for any that would prevent making a video game. The foremost authorities on the OGL all work for Paizo.

I'm not being facetious here, but why are we supposed to weep? Seemed like mostly positive news, or am I missing something?

I hope this turns out well, but obsidian dropped the ball they could have made a platform for pathfinder Crpgs, then eventually released the modules for every adventure path and made bank. I hope this games turns out well (and more classes are added, i rly want to be a magus), and that it again turns int a platform to allow for more APs. 

 

Imagine being able to buy say...kingmaker or rise of the runelords for like 60 bucks, maybe more, and every year or few years a new AP gets added as a campaign at somewhere between 20-60 dollars. all the classes from pf get added eventually. You know it would sell and be a primary money maker for years
