Maybe he collapsed under the weight of expectations for designing such an important sequel, or got burned out
from all the press
interviews a few weeks ago. It could just be the old "creative differences" dilemma (or maybe even an
early April fool). Whatever the case, the Neverwinter Nights 2 official forums and
Neverwinter Nights 2 News are reporting that
Ferret Baudoin has indeed left the building, and Obsidian has a new lead designer in J. E. Sawyer.
Will this delay NWN 2's projected Q3 release? As if Atari didn't have enough to worry about.
