Alpha Protocol apparently performed too poorly to receive a sequel, but developer Obsidian won't be put down. In fact, it wants to get involved with Chrono Trigger, arguably one of the most beloved RPG names of all time. Apparently, the studio was in talks with Square Enix regarding a game, so this is a thing that might happen.
“We were talking to Square for quite awhile,” says CEO Feargus Urquhart. “You make RPGs, we make RPGs, it would be great to see what we could do together. And they really wanted to start getting into Western RPGs. And, so it kind of all ended up fitting together.”
Obsidian is currently making Dungeon Siege 3 for Square Enix and I simply hope it fares better than Alpha Protocol did. You know, in that I hope it's actually good. While we wait to see how that game fares, what would you say to an Obsidian-developed Chrono Trigger? Would that even work, do you think?
