His Linkedin profile also reflects this tongue-in-cheek sentiment of becoming a Dark Arts Professor. However, we have yet to find out exactly where he is going after his tenure at Obsidian.

Chris Avellone was one of the founding members of Obsidian Entertainment back in 2003. Chris has worked on some of the best and most beloved RPGs in the gaming world. His credits include Planescape Torment, Icewind Dale series, Knight of the Old Republic II, Neverwinter Nights, Fallout 2, Fallout: New Vegas, Wasteland 2, and the recent CRPG throwback Pillars of Eternity.

While this is sad news, it’s hard to imagine Chris not succeeding at whatever he does next. All the same, the best of luck to you Chris. Thanks for the great games and fond memories!
