Feargus Urquhart (born April 19, 1970) is an American video game developer and CEO of Obsidian Entertainment.

Career[edit | edit source]

Urquhart is best known for his work at Interplay Entertainment, particularly as leader of Black Isle Studios, Interplay's internal role-playing video game division which Urquhart established in 1997. In 1999, IGN's RPG Vault gave him the award for an Unsung Hero Of The Year, adding, "since he is always quick to deflect credit away from himself, the great majority of fans remain unaware of Feargus' actual contributions to Black Isle's titles. We won't give away his secrets other than to say we consider him a very worthy initial winner of this award."

When Interplay ran into financial difficulties, and Black Isle's future became uncertain, Urquhart and several other industry veterans departed to found Obsidian Entertainment.
