Obsidian Working On Pillars Of Eternity 2 & New IP

Maybe it’s safe to assume that any remotely successful game has a sequel in production, but it’s still nice to hear confirmation. Obsidian’s trad-fantasy RPG Pillars of Eternity, which John enjoyed so much, has a sequel in very early production, says the company’s CEO.
