Ascendant (Big Huge RPG) [X360/PS3/PC – Beta]

Ascendant is a third person action RPG with a fantasy theme. The game was announced by THQ in 2007 for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC. Developed by Big Huge Games and led by Oblivion designer Ken Rolston, Ascendant (also known as ‘Big Huge RPG’ and ‘Crucible’) was originally intended for a release in 2009.

When THQ decided to cut workforce for cost reduction in early 2009, Ascendant failed to gain the support of the publisher.  THQ would no longer fund the ambitous RPG, still they were seeking a new investor for Big Huge Games. In late May 2009, Curt Schilling’s 38 Studious bought the studio. The corresponding press release makes the impression that  Ascendant is back on track:

“Big Huge Games is currently developing an unnamed RPG title for the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system, PLAYSTATION 3 computer entertainment system, and Windows PC.”

Thanks to Robert Seddon and Celine for the contribution!
