Fallout: Fans of New Vegas would love an Obsidian-designed game, and a new interview with the studio''s CEO shows him that he would like to do another one.
The first Fallout 125th anniversary was commemorated earlier this month, and to commemorate DualShockers spoke with Obsidian CEO Feargus Urquhart about whether the studio would ever return to the series. "If we ever had the opportunity to make another Fallout game, we''d make it," Urquhart said when asked if Obsidian would say yes to develop a new game.
"There''s no question of whether or not we would do it, it''s just ''Will the opportunity arise?'' Urquhart said. "I spent the whole year hoping that it would happen, but I''m sure it will be successful." Microsoft acquired Obsidian in 2018, and then acquired Bethesda, the rightsholders of Fallout.
Starfield, the next Bethesda IP that everyone is interested in is expected to launch next month, but it has been rescheduled for the first time in 2018, when it received its first gameplay trailer during Xbox and Bethesda''s Game Showcase back in June. Starfield currently does not have a release date, but it should start in the first half of 2023, giving Bethesda plenty of time to show off.
While the concept of a Obsidian Fallout is only hypothetical, Todd Howard has said the words Fallout 5, but don''t expect it to arrive anytime soon as it''s expected to be the next game after The Elder Scrolls 6, also announced in 2018. So, expect Fallout 5 by 2030 or so.
