Fallout: New Vegas developer Obsidian Entertainment seems hopeful that it will make another game in Bethesda’s post-apocalyptic franchise someday. Obsidian co-founder Feargus Urquhart made his goals clear during an interview with DualShockers, where he spoke on the possibilities of the future.
“Of course, if we ever got the opportunity to make another Fallout game, we’d make it,” Urquhart said. “There’s not even a question of whether or not we would do it. It’s just, ‘Will the opportunity arise?’”
Since Microsoft now owns both Bethesda and Obsidian, it gives fans more hope for a Fallout: New Vegas 2 (or another new Fallout game) than they’ve had in the past decade. That said, Obsidian still has a laundry list of ambitious projects in the works, including The Outer Worlds 2 and Avowed. Work on slightly less massive projects like Grounded and Pentiment still needs to be wrapped up, too. However, Urquhart is always looking to the future for Obsidian: “At some point we’ll start looking into what those next games are going to be, and I would be surprised if Fallout is not on that list.”
He continued: “If we were to do Fallout, it has to tie in with what Bethesda is doing with Fallout and a lot of other things, but I would always personally say my hope is that before I ride off into the sunset, I’d love to make another Fallout game.”
It’s exciting to hear Obsidian even mutter the word “Fallout,” but it’s not the first time we’ve received word that the studio could revisit the series. Journalist Jeff Grubb stated he had heard a potential Fallout: New Vegas 2 was in early talks this past February. At the time, he said that the project was nothing more than an idea and was likely still “years and years away.” It’s not much, but it’s clear that Obsidian knows what fans want, which should be enough to keep hope alive for decades.
