I know  team is working on Deadfire and new universe of Pillars of Ethernety  but  i  just  love more NWN universe.So my question is, any news about NWN3?

Anything new is likely to come from Beamdog: they're working on an Enhanced Edition of the original NWN, and I would expect them to look at NWN2 if they can get the rights and source code. I wouldn't be surprised if they decided to release some new content (probably not an entirely new game, though) as part of those projects.

I don't trust Beamdog to do a good job.

 

The new content they added for BG1 and 2 Enhanced Editions were no way near the quality of the original stuff.

I thought a lot of the EE writing was weak, but there are some solid encounters both in the new NPC quests and in the Black Pits. Would be very interested in what Beamdog could put together for high-level NWN2 encounters.

NWN2 was an Obsidian game and it is not likely that Beamdog will ever do anything with it or be able to justify the investment. Their people worked on the original and are intimately familiar with the technology but did not work on the sequel and are unfamiliar with it.

 

If there's an NWN3 it might be done by many companies including Beamdog but if there is an NWN2 remaster it is most likely to be done by Obsidian.

I'm not sure we'll ever see games like NWN and NWN2 again that somewhat closely implement the D&D ruleset and are highly mod-able. Plus there's the licensing terms that would need to be agreed upon.
