Maybe one of these days our Marketing guys will come up with something cool to put here. In the meantime, we have tried to come up with a short, pithy description of what we're all about.

Simply put, our goal is to create the best electronic RPG's on the market. Our team is made up of core RPGer's who work on nothing else. We create the kind of games we want to play, and by doing so, hope to stay true to the RPG enthusiast.

Oh yeah, and we're a division of Interplay.


What is Black Isle Studios again?
A Division of Interplay, created to focus solely on RPG's and the RPG gamer.

Why should I care?
You now have a dedicated group of RPGer's working at Interplay to create the absolute best RPG's. We work on nothing else.

How much RPG experience?
Our top people have been playing RPG's at least ten years each (including several that exceed twenty years). Many
of our members have been involved in the industry for years, including authors of AD&D campaigns, and artists whose works have appeared on the covers of Dragon magazine.

Mighty big talk. What have you done for me lately?
Ever heard of Icewind Dale II? Also, check out our GAMES section.

Where are you guys located?
About an hour south of Los Angeles, in sunny Irvine, California.

Do you need any help?
Black Isle Studios is ALWAYS looking for talented individuals with relevant experience and a PASSION for RPG's. Of course you can always peruse the Black Isle Employment Page to find out exactly who the Isle is currently looking for!
