New Vegas director open to follow-up

The director of Fallout: New Vegas is open to some follow-up. Fallout: New Vegas is one of the most revered Fallout games out there, but it wasn’t developed by Bethesda. The developer had just released Fallout 3 and was knee-deep in development The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, but wanted to maintain the momentum of the Fallout series. It licensed the series to Obsidian Entertainment, giving them the chance to spin-off into a post-apocalyptic version of Las Vegas. It was something that resonated with players for a variety of reasons, but it also made it difficult for Bethesda to emerge from the shadows of Obsidian’s outlook with Fallout 4. Players have demanded New Vegas continued for a while, but it’s unclear if it will ever happen.

The chances of it happening have increased now that Xbox is taking over Bethesda and Obsidian, but that doesn’t mean it will. There are rumors that Fallout: New Vegas 2 is actually in its early stages, but again, that doesn’t mean it will ever really see the light of day. That being said, Fallout: New Vegas director Josh Sawyer is open to another game in the series. Sawyer showed his interest in Kinda Funny Games and noted that he would like to play California or the Midwest as the setting for the hypothetical game. He also noted that there are many possibilities for a Fallout game set outside of the United States.

“I love Fallout, I love the setting, I could see myself working on it again, but you know, we’ll see where the future takes me,” Sawyer said. “[…] California or the Midwest would be very interesting. Obviously as a director I have to be passionate about it, but also that the team is very enthusiastic and that too works within the larger idea of ​​the IP.”

Whether there will ever be another Fallout game from Obsidian remains to be seen. Todd Howard has confirmed they have plans Dropout 5, but it sounds like it’s many, many years away from happening. You have to imagine that Xbox doesn’t want the IP address to remain inactive for more than a decade, but probably doesn’t want to release anything just like that either.
