When Ken Rolston left Bethesda Softworks after finishing design work on The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, his work in the videogames industry was supposed to be done. Big Huge Games apparently made him an offer he couldn't refuse, however, as he signed on to kick start an all-new, from scratch RPG with the company. While the actual game it years off -- Big Huge is projecting 2009 -- they have confirmed a publishing deal with THQ.

"I'm flabbergasted by the talent, craft and boundless energy of the Big Huge Games team," said Rolston in the press release. "In such splendid company, I'm privileged to embark on a bold pilgrimage to create a refreshingly original RPG experience. I know eager game fans will share our excitement as we reveal further details in the coming months."

Rolston's new RPG experience is headed to Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC. Now, we wait.
