Blockbuster Fallout New Vegas 2 is said to be in talks to be embarked on development.
According to a game industry journalist, a sequel to Fallout New Vegas is in “very early talks” at Microsoft. Speaking on Grubbsnax’s premium Giantbomb show, VentureBeat’s Jeff Grubb announced that developer Obsidian could embark on a sequel to this classic RPG, now that they’re under the same roof as the developer. The license holder is Bethesda.
“This is very early, but people have started talking about this project, the keywords that keep coming up include Obsidian and New Vegas 2, Grubb said. “We are discussing this project in the near future. The negotiations are going very well, and there is a good chance that what you expect will come true.”
“A lot of people at Microsoft think it’s possible, and there are a lot of people who are very eager and interested in the project to make it happen,” Grubb added. Fallout: New Vegas is a 2010 action role-playing game developed by Obsidian Entertainment and published by Bethesda Softworks.
A spin-off of the hit FPS RPG series ‘Fallout’, the game includes the explorable regions of Arizona, California, and Nevada. Back in 2013, Obsidian CEO Feargus Urquhart stated that he was very interested in developing a New Vegas sequel and shared some of his ideas for a sequel. “Oh, we really want to do Fallout New Vegas 2. It would be great if we could tie Fallout 1 to Fallout 2, we’ve tried to tie these two games together in terms of content.”
This is probably the best news for gamers who love the Fallout series, especially the New Vegas series. Microsoft acquired Obsidian in 2018. The corporation later adopted the name ZeniMax Media, the parent company of Bethesda Softworks, in 2021. The move helped Xbox Game Studios grow from 15 to 23 development teams with the addition of Bethesda Game Studios, id Software, ZeniMax Online Studios, Arkane, MachineGames, Tango Gameworks, Alpha Dog and Roundhouse Studios in hand.
