Fans of the beloved classic PC RPG Planescape: Torment have longed for a sequel for years but now we may all get our wish. Speaking to Rock Paper Shotgun, former Interplay head Brian Fargo revealed plans for a new Torment game have been in the works for a few years and that the game already has a setting.
This new title will not be set in the Planescape world, instead it will be located in a newly created RPG universe called Numenera created by designer Monte Cook who worked on the original Planescape. Despite the new setting, Fargo promises the same thematic ties as Planescape, with "memorable companions ... heavy reactivity (and) an intense, personal story."
It'll be interesting to see how this new Torment title turns out. Brian Fargo is currently at inXile helming their Kickstarted Wasteland 2 RPG but work has already begun on Numenera. I'm excited to see a sequel to Planescape: Torment actually happen after all these year and I'm not bothered at all by the new setting. If another Torment RPG turned up with the same quality of characters, writing and setting as the original, then I am all for it.
