We seriously don’t know whether we should be excited about this or not. Black Isle Studios, the company behind some truly amazing PC RPG games – like Icewind Dale and Baldur’s Gate – is back. According to its official website, which is currently down, the company’s goal has always been to make the best RPG games. Therefore, Black Isle Studios is back.
Black Isle Studios was created in 1998. The idea for the division’s name came from the Black Isle in Scotland – founder Feargus Urquhart’s native country. Black Isle Studios is most famous for working on the first two games in the popular and influential Fallout series as well as the critically acclaimed Planescape: Torment, though they also achieved success with the Icewind Dale and Baldur’s Gate series of role-playing video games.

John is the founder and Editor in Chief at DSOGaming. He is a PC gaming fan and highly supports the modding and indie communities. Before creating DSOGaming, John worked on numerous gaming websites. While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved - and still does - the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2. John has also written a higher degree thesis on the "The Evolution of PC graphics cards."
