nordic games is a publisher, has nothing to do with creating games

Well since the Gothic trademark is owned exclusively by the original developer Piranha Bytes (G1, G2, G2:NotR and G3) who only licensed it to JoWooD for G3 and G4 (including addons): No, they don’t need to find a developer.

In fact Nordic Games, which bought the bankrupt publisher JoWooD, doesn’t have the right to publish any new titles of the Gothic trademark. It actually may be the original developers who give it another shot.

Gothic 4 had a brand transition to "Arcania", so if they ever make another, it will most likely also be called Arcania. Be warned, however, that Arcania was turned into a playground for console noobs and is a mediocre game at best.
As for another true Gothic, there is Risen and Risen 2, the latter being quite new. If you want more Gothic, go play Risen.

Yeah, Risen is the new Gothic, amazing game. It was developed by the same guys as original Gothic 1,2,3 games (Piranha Bytes).

Piranha owns the rights but all they said is that they could do it. From interviews they've done, it sounds like they're happy to be away from the Gothic universe and doing the Risen material. I wouldn't expect Gothic 5 any time soon. After doing 3 games worth, I think they kind of burned out and wanted a change, maybe for awhile.

i really dont hope so the gothic universe created in the first 3 games is so amazing and with todays graphics a fourth made by piranha would be amazing!

I agree. I wish they would go back and give us another great Gothic game but it's sounding like they're tired of it and they seem to be all about pirates these days. Not that there's anything wrong with pirates. I just like Diego and Gorn more than I like pirates. I can't help it. They're like pirates, but better.

There is a rumor going on that they are working on risen 3. so ya no new gothic more than likely. I honestly don't know why in my opinion risen 1 was a dissapoitment at the end. The ending scene was over quick and it felt kinda of unfinished to me. However if they ever make Gothic 5 i really hope they don't continue Arcania and just start from where Gothic 3 left off.
