Obsidian is indeed working on a Kickstarter project, popular studio figure Chris Avellone has confirmed in a tweet.
When asked about the potentiality of the project, Avellone said in the tweet: “No news yet except we’re still working on it.”
Obsidian’s been going through a rough patch as of late since its last release, Dungeon Siege III last May, A next-gen project from the studio, codenamed Project Virginia, was recently canned. It was thought it would be published by Microsoft.
It was also revealed it never got a MetaCritic-related bonus for Fallout: New Vegas from Bethesda due to missing out on the 85 target by one point.
