Dungeons & Dragons: Dark Alliance action-RPG artwork and logo

While the recent Dungeons & Dragons: Dark Alliance action-RPG did not pan out well, and that's putting it gently, Wizards of the Coast is not giving up on the idea just yet. As such, they have rebranded Dark Alliance's Tuque Games into Invoke Studios and are now working on greatly expanding the team.

According to the press release, the plan is for Invoke Studios to grow from 80 to more than 200 employees by 2025 in order to ensure the studio's vision will be fully realized. That's a very good thing in my eyes as Dungeons & Dragons: Dark Alliance had some interesting ideas, but it clearly needed a lot more time and resources to get everything polished up and ready to go.

Unsurprisingly, this massive new team will also be working on a massive new game. The exact details are still few and far between, but the new title will be a AAA role-playing game set in the Dungeons & Dragons universe and developed on Unreal Engine 5. If I were to hazard a guess, it'll most likely be something similar to The Witcher or Dragon Age series.

Considering that the studio is still in its growing phase, and that we know essentially nothing about this new Dungeons & Dragons game, I would also guess that we'll have to wait at least a couple of years before we hear much of anything about it. Whatever the case may be, I'll make sure to let you know once the big reveal goes live.

Until then, you can read a few more tidbits about Invoke Studios and their plans for the future over at the Wizards of the Coast website. Enjoy!
