Fresh off the heels of the announcement of Dungeons & Dragons Dark Alliance.

The Dungeons & Dragons IP is planning “seven or eight” games to be released in the near future, Wizards of the Coast recently confirmed.

“The D&D team’s job is to say ‘yes’ when people want to play something… The best dungeon masters tend to want to figure out how to say ‘yes’, and have the players do what they want to do… We want to open it up, open up the narrative possibilities, the character development, open up the level of problem solving and combat opportunities and thrills that players can be able to experience,” Wizards of the Coast’s Chris Cocks said to GamesIndustry.biz.

“We’re going to do it in a variety of genres… And in future games we will explore different areas, whether it’s grand strategy and combat at army level scale, to really intimate character portrayal.”

The news comes after the announcement of Dungeons & Dragons Dark Alliance at The Game Awards, a title Wizards of the Coast has called a “spiritual successor” to the Baldur’s Gate: Dark Alliance series of games. You can check out Dark Alliance, planned for PC and consoles in 2020, below.
