Hmm, larian or not larian, we'll see what they make, as always it's too hard to predict anything reliably.

After the aquisition of inIxile and Obsidian by Microsoft, I think it will be Obsidian. They made Pillars of Eternity and Tyranny over the last couple of years, Sawyer worked on Icewind Dale 2, so this should be a no-brainer.

But really interested what will be the story of this game and how good D&D 5 rules play on PC.

Not necessarily.

There is a trade off to be sure. For one, it's released when we are finished is off the table. But development won't be starved for lack of funds. Microsoft gives its boutique developers (with an established track record) a fair amount of leeway.

Let's face it, neither inXile nor Obsidian were developing fresh cutting edge games.

Crowdfunding for medium to large sized development studios is essentially dead. In truth the model never really made sense for established studios. Instead of giving them real independence from publisher interference, it locked them into catering to the most vocal elements of their supporter base ('investors' if you will).

inXile and Obsidian surrendering their independence is simply a reflection that video games are an industry.

Year in year out-all but a dream.
Both Heaven and Hell are left behind;
I stand in the moonlit dawn,
Free from clouds of attachment.
