Almost every game resource has a reference to Episode_1 folder/directory, so, I'm not even sure that the next game in Divinity universe will be "3" installment.

But! That makes sense. If you're played in D2 you have noticed already that we have just 3 middle-sized locations for exploration (I don't count Flying Fortress, since they are mostly copy$pasta locations and serves like the Battle Arena in BD; also, I ignore tiny & pale shadow of Aleroth), which is weird for such RPG. Right after we got a dragon form and our personal Fortress/Tower and ready to do epic things, to win battles... the game just ends up. Such short ending just left me confused and empty... until I didn't found a reference about Episode 1.

If it is a really just a first episode of the game - it explains why it is so short and, I assume, points @ possible episode 2 or, even, 3 :P

Also, here is the old screenshot which shows something interesting: Verdistis? :O Perhaps, the game content was much richer and episode cutting explains scanty/scarcity/whatever_its_spelled of ep1 represented by Divinity 2.


So, if someone has a thoughts/assumptions/information about the upcoming episode - do tell ;P

I remember this screenshot; it's quite old... few months after Beyond Divinity was available I think (but I'm not completely sure). Maybe, at this time, the project was longer, but they changed their mind (because budget stuff or something like that). Is Larian Studio making a part-two with a trip at Verdistis? From what I heard about the strange ending (I try to avoid spoiler, but I understood it's unexpected), it's possible.

At least, I would very happy; I loved Verdistis!

That was a test screenshot. It was never stated that Verdistis will be in the game. At the time they were experimenting with the new game engine and learning how to use it. It was to give us an idea of what to expect.

Though like that famous Link and Ganondorf battle CGI film Nintendo released before the Wind Waker, we all assumed we'd see Verdistis when it was only a graphical demonstration of the new game play engine.

It is far more evident that a Divinity 3 will be released provided sales do well and I don't see why they wouldn't do well.

You're correct... Perhaps (c)

Yes, but it was never stated that it doesn't. Actually, game was in development like almost 5 years and just 3 unique locations? C'mon.

The fact that there is no Verdistis in the current episode 1 doesn't mean there is no such game content at all. Like for Episode 2.

I guess we will get the sequel in 2010, right after a year since Episode 1 release. What do we have here? Lessee... 3 unique locations for 5 years and some new (approx. 3 too) just for one year...
That the logical statement from your POV. Seriously, do you really believe in that? I'm not. Pretty sure we just got like a 40%-50% of the developed game content in Episode 1.

Where has it been stated about Divinity 3 being released in 2010? That would be rather awesome and sounds too good to be true.

Well you said there is going to be a sequel in 2010 (although that doesn't imply a Divinity 3). What is your source for that?

Kein... look at your quote and what I've increased in size. Where did you get this information?

Nah, we don't slap people here. Just partially annihilate...

Larian released Beyond Divinity 2 years after Divinity: Sword of Lies (Divine Divinity) so I'd guess it be at least 2 years for Divinity 3. Can't rush things too much, but hopefully it won't be another 5 year wait.

I'm sure there has been some preliminary discussion on Divinity 3 for some time now.

I'd guess there's probably be Divinity 2 Expansion before they even think of Divinity 3.

Pretty hard to expand on things, the way they look at the end, without making it really, really odd.

Warning, Spoiler:
I must admit, despite loving the game - especially the first part before the tower - I was disappointed when the content seemed to dry up in the second half. Ya, there were still some interesting things to do, but it felt a lot less organic. I really hope they keep things more personal all the way through in whatever sequel may come. All that fortress action was a bit meh.

It really was like, "Yes! Finally! I'm ready now..." and then almost nothing, except for fortress raids and a few side quests on the mountain sides. Still, despite how negative that sounds, it took me several days to play through and was very enjoyable.


There's something about impaling foes with magic missiles and explosive arrows before they even know what hit them :>

Though i don`t know how the game ends, but i presume it ends with you reviving Ygerna - killing Damian. If so, that turns out to be an endless circle, i doubt Ygerna is immortal, so she`ll eventually die and revive Damian again, or she`ll just kill herself or whatnot. I`m guessing if there will be an Episode 2, wich i hope for very much, it could be about you traveling back in time to fight side by side with the Marked One/Divine One and prevent him from adopting Damian. Wich brings me an idea, the one that in D2:ED that murders the Divine One could in fact be you!(If there is time travel ofcourse)
There`s quite alot to talk about here, but i really wish for the traveling back to the past, that would be Epic.

Barely doubt. Actually, there was no time-travel in whole series and making such deus ex aspect in new episode will be... silly. Weak. Not a Larian style, even if admit that they are not so good @ plot part of the game.

I doubt that's an option. The skill system and general balance would be screwed.
