Neverwinter Nights 2 Changes Lead Designers

Possibly a delay for the much awaited for NeverWinter Nights 2 as the lead designer for the upcoming game has left Obsidian. I couldn’t find any reason why he left, but could it be the from the stress of designing such an important sequel, or perhaps its from the press interviews from a few weeks ago. There are concerns on the big shoes that Josh must now fill, I still worry that a major change like this so far into the game’s development could cause a major delay or other unforeseen troubles.

According to a post on the game’s official forums, Ferret Baudoin has been replaced by J.E. Sawyer as the lead designer of Neverwinter Nights 2. Here’s what Josh had to say:

“Ferret did work at BIS on both Jefferson and Van Buren (The Black Hound and Fallout 3). On F3 he was designing the highly nutty (but cool) Brotherhood of Steel/Circle of Steel stuff.

I’m now the acting lead designer on NWN2.”
