Planescape still available for licensing, WoTC says Fargo never approached them

NEWS | ? Comments |

Author: Nicholas Greene  

When the news broke that another Torment game was in the works, everybody who played the original was pretty excited; after all, it was among the most brilliant games of its era. Concurrent with news of the title, however; was Brian Fargo's revelation that the D&D IP owner, Wizards of the Coast, turned down the opportunity to be involved.

Planescape still available for licensing, WoTC says Fargo never approached them

According to a WoTC spokesperson, that never actually happened. "Wizards of the Coast never actually received any request to license Planescape from Brian Fargo or InXile.

So what happened? Most people think Atari was involved in some way, as the digital license holder for many of the D&D franchises. They could well have stonewalled Fargo, though he admits he didn't really try particularly hard, since his organization had the opportunity to use the Numenera system. 

Wizards further established that it is actively seeking partners for all its D&D IPs, not just Planescape, so we might even see Baldur's Gate 3 on the horizon.
