Black Isle Studios is getting resuscitated by Interplay, according evidence found via various social media outlets and a webpage.

Black Isle was the developer behind such beloved RPG titles such as Icewind Dale, Planescape: Torment, and of course Fallout.

Here’s a website pointing to the reincarnation, as well as a Twitter account and  aFacebook page which was created on August 13.

Eurogamer notes the website is registered to Interplay and Herve Caen.

inXile Entertainment’s Brian Fargo, who co-founded Interplay, said via Twitter: “I just read that Interplay is bringing back Black Isle. Hmmm… Not enough info for me to comment.”

Another Black Isle co-founder, Feargus Urquhart moved on from the studio to form Obsidian Entertainment, and Chris Avellone who works there as well told Eurogamer:

“[This] doesn’t involve Obsidian at all. No idea what it’s about. I wasn’t aware anything beyond the name was left at Interplay.”

We’ll update you on this when we hear more.
