In a somewhat surprising move Square Enix today announced that they will publish Dungeon Siege 3 in development at Obsidian Entertainment (Alpha Protocol, Fallout: New Vegas) under supervision of the original developers Gas Powered Games and Chris Taylor.

Since starting out as a Microsoft owned property Dungeon Siege publishing rights later landed at Take Two, who published a PSP title, but now it seems the Japanese publisher who recently published Gas Powered Games' Supreme Commander 2 will be handling the franchise from now on.

Dungeon Siege III

Dungeon Siege 3 is in development for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 and will be one of Square Enix' focus titles at E3.

Chris Taylor had the following to add to the press release:

"It has been a great pleasure to collaborate with Obsidian. They are a very talented developer who really knows what it takes to build a deep and engaging RPG experience, and I can't think of a better group to continue the Dungeon Siege series".

REVIEW. Written by Martin Eiser

"As a whole Dungeon Siege III offers some grand ideas, and the illusion of fantasy epic, but falls just before greatness due to its shortcomings."

PREVIEW. Written by Gillen McAllister

"Some things are clear: don't go alone. But make sure your backup is someone who's less Lone Ranger, more Tango & Cash. Always pick Anjali, and avoid the Determined Pants."
