The game is being developed by Hidden Path Entertainment, who previously worked on such titles as Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and Age of Empires 2 HD Edition. However, it is still in a very early development phase, which means that there are no screenshots or videos so far.
What kind of game is it going to be? The latest work in the Dungeons & Dragons universe is set to be a third-person role-playing game with an open world and a budget of an AAA title. There is currently no more detailed information about the gameplay or the story.
Who is working on it? The game’s narrative director is Whitney Beltran, who previously created the tabletop game Bluebeard’s Bride.
