The thing is, when people say "Obsidian" they actually just mean "Josh Sawyer" anyway, who will probably end up with a freelance consulting gig on the game, much like he did for Pathfinder: Kingmaker.

Okay, fair point. I have the kind of background that focuses on the companies more than the people, outside of a very few unusual individuals. I wasn’t even thinking about Sawyer, my bad there.

The thought only just occured to me as well, but he is basically the person there that you would want to talk to. 

I don't think he actually worked on Baldur's Gate itself, he was more focused on Icewind Dale, but from what I've read, there was a lot of crossover and collaboration between the two teams.

Owlcat Studios could have also been a contender, with a few more years of experience and a slightly stronger staff writing team. The major problems with Pathfinder: Kingmaker were technical in nature, and it was very true to Pathfinder with some solid gameplay.
