Project V13 The return of Black Isle Studios

Remember Black Isle Studios? No? What about this logo?
Still doesn't ring a bell?
Well I know what will, the list of games they developed and or published:
Developed:
Fallout 2 (1998)
Planescape: Torment (1999)
Icewind Dale (2000)
Icewind Dale: Heart of Winter (2001)
Icewind Dale: Heart of Winter - Trials of the Luremaster (2001)
Icewind Dale II (2002)
Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance II (2004)
Published:
Baldur's Gate (1998)
Baldur's Gate: Tales of the Sword Coast (1999)
Baldur's Gate II: Shadows of Amn (2000)
Baldur's Gate II: Throne of Bhaal (2001)
Lionheart: Legacy of the Crusader (2003)

Yeah...Baldur's Gate and Icewind Dale are 2 of my favorite games ever. (Icewind Dale is actually the only special edition I ever bought)

So why am I talking about a studio that died 10 years ago?
Because they (like some of the characters from the awesome RPG's they used to make came) back from the dead.
Black Isle Studios is now working on a new RPG currently named Project V13 from which very little is known right now. (look for updates on their website)
What I do know? I'm super excited about this game. If they keep true to their history this game will be awesome...
