No, not the single-player Role Playing Game series. For that, see Neverwinter Nights and Neverwinter Nights 2.

No, not even the original Neverwinter Nights, the 2D MMORPG whose popularity was eclipsed by the BioWare RPG.

And definitely not The Neverwinter Trilogy with Drizzt Do'Urden, of which the first novel, Gauntlgrym, has been released.

...Confused yet? So are we.

Neverwinter is an upcoming MMORPG in development by Cryptic Studios, set in the titular city of Neverwinter in the Forgotten Realms universe, which is also the setting of all of the above. Considered by Atari to be the continuation of the Neverwinter Nights series, it is the first game in the series to be based on the Dungeons and Dragons 4th Edition ruleset. (The first and second NWN games used the 3 and 3.5 editions, respectively.)

According to Cryptic COO Jack Emmert, Neverwinter is going to be less of a traditional MMO and more of a story-driven game, "closer to things like Dragon Age or Oblivion".

Provides examples of:

  • After the End: Set 100 years after the NWN games, and after the Spellplague that drastically changed the Forgotten Realms. By this point the titular city has been completely obliterated and rebuilt yet again.
  • Continuity Nod: The developers promise Easter eggs referencing the previous games.
