Chris Avellone Joins Divinity Original Sin 2
If you're an RPG fan you likely already know the name Chris Avellone, or at least know of his work. That's because he's worked on all the great role playing games of the last few two decades; Fallout 2, Planescape Torment, KotOR 2, Neverwinter Nights 2, Pillars of Eternity, Fallout New Vegas, Alpha Protocol and even FTL.
That's an impressive resume, you can count the number of people in the industry as impressive as Mr Avellone on one hand. It's also reason to get excited now that he's joined the team at Larian working on Divinity Original Sin 2. Larian even released a statement, which is below for your viewing pleasure.
"It's a huge honor to have one of our favorite developers on board for the game," said Larian Studios Creative Director Swen Vincke. "Chris' credentials are sterling, so of course I was very nervous about showing him what we'd been working on. When it turned out that he was enthusiastic about it, I was absolutely giddy! It's a real honor to have one of the masters on board to help us improve our narrative and characters—I honestly can't wait to get started."
