Obsidian Would “Love to Make Fallout: New Vegas 2”
Speaking to Rock, Paper, Shotgun at DICE Obsidian CEO Feargus Urquhart announced that the studio would love develop a follow up to 2010’s Fallout: New Vegas.
“Oh, we’d love to do Fallout: New Vegas 2,” he stated. “It would be awesome.”
Speaking about how the game might be made and what Obsidian would like to do with the title Urquhart had this to say:
“If I think of going from Fallout 1 to Fallout 2, we tried to associate the two areas somewhat closely. It wasn’t just ‘Oh, we’re gonna do this 2,000 miles from here.’ So I think if we were to do Fallout: New Vegas 2 – or just a new Fallout – we would probably separate it from what the internal team at Bethesda’s doing.
“We’d keep it on the West Coast, because we’re West Coast people. They’re East Coast, so it makes sense.”
“And we need an interesting confined area. So I mean, it could be LA. Fallout LA. That could be interesting. It’d probably be The Boneyard, which is from Fallout 1. It could be very different. It could be almost a Walking Dead meets Fallout-like thing because of all the radiation,” he continued.
“We talk to Bethesda all the time,” he said. “And I think the challenge here doesn’t just apply to Bethesda specifically, but to a lot of publishers in general. But basically, what does all the [current] console crap mean? The challenge in this period of time has been, you have this console transition, and it’s strange that they’re still not announced.
“But that always creates a disruption in the industry. And now you mix in [the emergence of] mobile and F2P stuff, and it’s left a lot of people reeling.”
“So that’s a lot of the conversation we’ve had with publishers. ‘OK, how do we get back to normal – whatever normal is going to be.’ That’s just the process right now,” Urquhart concluded.
