Deep Silver's teaser timer has run out, only to be replaced by another countdown clock that will expire in 14 days, probably to coincide with an official unveiling at the Leipzig Games Convention. What was revealed however is that Piranha Bytes' newest title is no longer known as Project RPB, but has an official title, Risen.

With Risen, Piranha Bytes introduces a fresh, new setting. The game’s protagonist is shipwrecked after a storm and finds himself on a mysterious island. An active volcano dominates the scene. Ancient temple ruins have recently risen from the ground, and bizarre creatures infest the island.

"Piranha Bytes have already proven their enormous talent for creating both enthralling and profound role-playing worlds. With Risen, the team presents a new exciting scenario providing a great variety of adventures, which will keep players glued in front of their monitors." says Dr. Klemens Kundratitz, Managing Director of Koch Media.
