Speaking about the new project
Spector said that the previously released image of the whale and stingray riders “represents an aspect of what the game is about. It will be a pretty deep game. Do what we ask you to do. This whale is part of this array of gaming levels.” Spector also mentioned that a separate team at Otherside is working with Wizards of the Coast on a licensed Dungeons & Dragons game. Another person’s job page says, “We’re assembling a team for a big job in the Forgotten Realms” over a picture of a halfling trying to escape from xanthan goldfish, and several advertised positions mention “multiplayer gameplay systems,” but that’s about it.
As tempting as it is to speculate in a multiplayer stealth game about groups of rogues doing heists based on these clues, it isn’t that much. “The D&D game is going well,” was all Spector said. “You have to ask them for sure, but I think the Wizards are happy with what we’re doing.” Like many people involved in cyberpunk classics, it turns out he’s not a fan. “That’s where I’m going to have problems,” Spector said. “I want people to give me hell for what I’m about to say, but I don’t think I care. NFTs are ridiculous. Who thinks this is a good idea?
