You guys think that there is any chance of a sequel to Arcanum in the works? I realize that Jason Anderson works for Turtle Rock Studios and Leonard Boyarsky works for Blizzard Entertainment. However, considering that Obsidian Entertainment worked with Jason Anderson and inXile Entertainment on Wasteland 2, I am extremely hopeful to get a sequel to the game I played (and replayed) throughout my highschool years. What do you guys think?

I think Activision Blizzard owns the rights to the game (having bought Sierra Entertainment, who AFAIK owned the rights to Arcanum).

Yeah this is right, current trademark holder is Activision Publishing, Inc., which is subsidiary of Activision Blizzard, they renewed their claim to trademark in 2012.

I would pay serious money for a reboot rather than sequel.

 

The original Arcanum did what it did well better than just about anything else out there, but it was also hideously broken in so many ways it's not even funny. A "spiritual successor" would suit me just fine.

I have a project. It's a tabletop RPG. It's free. It's a work in progress. Find it here: www.brikoleur.com

Hopefully Blizzard doesn't make a sequal. The last thing I want to play is a arcanum sequel with cartoon art...

True, considering how popular steam punk is. It's surprising their wasn't a spiritual successor already...

 

Their is no bug that the guys at nexus won't patch so I'm not to worried about buggyness

Like to see sequels of both Arcanum & VTM, but .........


I have struggle to understand a Universe that allows the destruction of an entire planet. Which will win this endless conflict - destruction or creation? The only thing I know for certain is never to place your faith entirely on one side. Play the middle if you want to survive.

 

Everyone else is a fanatic. I am Gauldoth Half-Dead. Your savior.

"Those who won our independence by revolution were not cowards. They did not fear political change. They did not exalt order at the cost of liberty. To courageous, self-reliant men, with confidence in the power of free and fearless reasoning applied through the processes of popular government, no danger flowing from speech can be deemed clear and present, unless the incidence of the evil apprehended is so imminent that it may befall before there is opportunity for full discussion. If there be time to expose through discussion the falsehood and fallacies, to avert the evil by the processes of education, the remedy to be applied is more speech, not enforced silence."--Justice Louis Brandeis, Concurring, Whitney v. California, 274 U.S. 357 (1927)

I like the basic idea of fantasy Victorian setting and magic vs tech, but IMO the thing would need a ground up overhaul.
