Oblivion lead designer joins Big Huge RPG venture

Big Huge Games is a developer best known for its work in the RTS genre with the Rise of Nations PC series, but it's now expanding its horizons and leaping into the world of the RPG.

Details on its RPG project are scant - all that's currently know is that it'll definitely be a console game, with a PC version on the cards according to - but Big Huge has just announced it's employing the talents of RPG heavyweight Ken Rolston for the title.

Rolston was lead designer on The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion and The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind, and has also been involved with pen and paper RPGs.

Rolston has explained he had planned to hang up his RPG spurs after Oblivion's release, but Big Huge Games "came along with a strikingly original and cunning concept for a console now I'm back in the harness and chomping at the bit!" Sounds promising indeed.
