I have an idea of what the secret project might be. They're currently hiring for developers on a "highly stylized MMO." Feargus fairly recently mentioned some ideas.
"There's something we're talking about that would be really cool, but it's not an original property," he revealed. "It's a licensed property. But it's not Alpha Protocol!
"It's something we can still do a ton of creative stuff with, though. And then the other thing is an original property. Also, there's a third thing that somebody approached us with, but I really don't think that's going to work out."
This is forward-thinking and a necessity for a 100-plus-sized studio such as Obsidian. Only 15 people are making Eternity, more or less, while the rest are finishing South Park: The Stick of Truth, now a Ubisoft game. That's a lot of people to keep busy.
I feel like I also read somewhere he was exploring the idea of creating procedurally generated maps but for the infinity engine styled games, so it would be kind of like Skyrim but in the style of the IE games. However I don't know if I'm confusing this with the same article I referenced above, either way that would be cool. http://www.eurogamer...rter-project-be
