That would be pretty awesome, but I also reckon that would be a risk.
True, but there is a proven market for CRPG's at the moment and the IP originates in the medium that those game attempt to emulate.

Is there a specific risk you're referring to?

Redemption was quite nice for what it was but for me Bloodlines was so much better. that said I would buy a Redemption remaster.

Nope. I think this genre is nice for Developers who can't afford to make a more modern RPG or for those who want a very tactical combat (like Divinity: Original Sin series), but otherwise I find them to bring nothing to the table other than nostalgia. I much prefer the immersion of being able to look all around me and never needing a narrator to describe things I can't see on the screen.

Also, CRPG refers to "Computer RPG", which is every RPG that is a video game (the term was made to differentiate video game RPGs from Pen'n'Paper RPGs). Isometric CRPG is a more fitting term.

True, but there is a proven market for CRPG's at the moment and the IP originates in the medium that those game attempt to emulate.

Is there a specific risk you're referring to?
From what I understand, Obsidian almost went bankrupt with Tyranny and Deadfire, so it's not like this is risk-free (though those did have some issues other than the market: Tyranny was badly advertised, and PoE2 was a direct sequel and also not that well advertised).
