Founding

It was founded by Feargus Urquhart back in 1996. Black Isle Studios got its name after Urquhart’s homeland. Meaning, the idea for the game came from the Black Isle in Scotland. According to some reports, the studio was credited for the development of the Fallout; however, they weren’t responsible for the game. It was talked that a key portion of the studio came from the team that created Fallout. Sometime later, when they were developing their first official game, Fallout 2, several employees left the company in order to found Troika Games. It was rumored that they left after they were unable to come to a settlement with the company on how their next team should be organized.

Closure

In the years leading to the closure of the studio, the parent company financial problems would get worse. That resulted into canceling games such as Stonekeep 2: Godmaker and Black Isle’s Torn. Moreover, it was noted that they would develop Baldur’s Gate: Dark Alliance 2, publish Lionheart: Legacy of the Crusader and releasing only Icewind Dale 2.
