Obsidian Entertainment CEO Feargus Urquhart said he’d like to create another Fallout game before he retires.
In an interview with Gamepressure, Urquhart was asked whether a new Fallout game would be possible under Obsidian, who developed Fallout: New Vegas. “I would love to make another Fallout before I retire. I don’t know when that is, I don’t have a date of my retirement,” Urquhart explained.
He continued, “It’s funny – you can say I’m already 52, or only 52. It’s one of those two, depending on the day. My hope is that’ll happen, but we’ll have to wait and see.”
Back in October, Urquhart said he’d like to create another Fallout game. The main question wasn’t whether Obsidian Entertainment would make one, but when will the opportunity arise to do it? Currently, Obsidian is working on Avowed and The Outer Worlds 2, which so far don’t have a release window.
However, Bethesda said that Fallout 5 would be the next project for the studio after The Elder Scrolls VI. So hopefully, something like a Fallout: New Vegas sequel could fill the void until then. According to Bethesda’s Todd Howard, Fallout: New Vegas was originally envisioned as a big expansion to Fallout 3 but it eventually became its own standalone product.
In IGN’s Fallout: New Vegas review, we said “In New Vegas, the fun Fallout 3 formula is intact, with more polished combat, high-quality side missions, and the exciting setting of the Vegas strip. Unfortunately, the bugs also tagged along for the ride.”
