Det har sedan en tid tillbaka varit känt att utgivaren #JoWood har planerat att släppa en fjärde del i Gothic-serien, men att en utvecklare har saknats. Idag har det emellertid tillkännagivits att det blir #Spellbound som får axla #Piranha Bytes och utveckla #Gothic 4 till PC, Playstation 3 och Xbox 360.
JoWooD Productions Software AG is proud to present Spellbound Entertainment AG as the official developing team for Gothic 4.
One of the most convincing and central arguments for choosing Spellbound, was the scope of RPG experience brought in by Spellbound team member Jochen Hamma, who was involved in creating the legendary „Nordland Trilogy“ based upon the Pen & Paper RPG „Das Schwarze Auge“.
Furthermore, Spellbound has created own tools for achieving exceptional standards in Quality and Quality Assurance. Both parties are confident to produce a game of highest quality, and Spellbound intends to focus on the traditional strengths of the brand, setting new standards in the original, authentic Gothic essentials.
At the Games Convention 2007 in Leipzig, Mr. Jochen Hamma, Spellbounds Executive Producer, is showing the first facts and plans to curious fans and special interest media, outlining which strengths are essentially to be intensified, and which weaknesses are tagged for elimination.
Gothic 4 is being developed for PC and Current Gen console systems, a release date will be announced in the coming weeks.
