If you're getting a strong sense of deja vu at the title up above, we can't blame you -- after all, we've been covering
this supposed MMO announcement for a couple years now. However, a pair of recent developments have led us to believe that Atari
is on the verge of announcing the long-anticipated Neverwinter Nights
The first piece of concrete news is a brief statement from the recent GenCon Indy
, where Critical-Hits.com
went to a D&D products seminar and heard the representatives state that Atari has an upcoming D&D video game. Unfortunately, they were unable to obtain any further information about it at the convention.
Following up on this statement, Superannuation did a bit of digging
and discovered that Atari recently purchased a slew of domain names, including visitneverwinter.com, playneverwinter.com and neverwintergame.com. Add these facts together with the promised announcement of Cryptic's new MMO this summer
, and we could be hearing official confirmation of a Neverwinter Nights
MMO any day now. Stay tuned!
