According to the very first tweet from the studio's Twitter account, the team is working on a new multiplaform science-fiction RPG. James Ohlen, the head of studio at Archetype, wrote that "Archetype is a chance for us to build the type of roleplaying game that we love to play. Video games are a uniquely interactive medium. They allow us to give the player powerful choices that have real consequences on how the story unfolds."
We'll have to wait and see how this team grows but it definitely seems like fans of old-school BioWare games and RPGs in general should pay attention.
