Rumours are circulating that the Black Isle's Lithtech based RPG has been canned and there seems to be plenty of weight behind the stories. Fatbabies posted the first news with Voodoo Extreme following up with a confirmation from a Black Isle Studios Designer.

Torn was created by many of the team who worked on Planescape:Torment and was to be Black Isle's big attempt at an "original world" RPG. Its cancellation appears to have lead to a number of layoffs at Black Isle Studios rather than a reshuffle of the teams. Neverwinter Nights and Baldur's Gate Dark Alliance for the PS 2 are still on track.
