In recent history Obsidian
is perhaps best known, in the Fallout world, for developing the excellent Fallout: New Vegas
(2010). But the studio's history with the franchise goes back a lot further, as founder and CEO Feargus Urquhart worked on the first two games in the franchise in the 1990s at Interplay.
In a new interview with Dual Shockers
celebrating 25 years of Fallout, Feargus Urquhart confirms that his love for the franchise hasn't waned at all in the subsequent years. And that, yeah, he'd love to make another game in the Fallout universe.
"Of course, if we ever got the opportunity to make another Fallout game, we'd make it," Feargus Urquhart says of Obsidian making a spiritual successor to Fallout: New Vegas. "There's not even a question of whether or not we would do it, it's just 'Will the opportunity arise?'. I hung around at Interplay for probably an extra year because I wanted to work on Fallout more. I love Fallout."
The interesting part is that Xbox owns the Fallout franchise, with Bethesda and Obsidian both being first-party Xbox Game Studios. And with Bethesda Game Studios hard at work finishing up Starfield and kicking off the next Elder Scrolls proper before going back to Fallout (which has been confirmed), there's a potential huge span of time between now and the next traditional Fallout game arriving. And with that, plenty of room for Fallout: New Vegas 2.
