Video Game / Forgotten Realms

Go To

While video games based on the Dungeons & Dragons properties have been around almost as long as the game itself, the earliest games in the Forgotten Realms setting were published by Strategic Simulations Inc. as part of their Gold Box collection. After the success of this series, Black Isle Studios received the license to publish further Forgotten Realms games, including Bioware's highly successful Baldur's Gate series.

As per the expected course of corporate food chains, Wizards of the Coast purchased TSR in 1997, and WOTC was acquired by Hasbro in 1999, meaning Hasbro Interactive gained the right to use the Dungeons and Dragons brand in their video games. In 2001, however, Hasbro faced financial difficulties, and they jettisoned Hasbro Interactive to be eaten by Infogrames Entertainment, who then published Bioware's Neverwinter Nights series.
