Obsidian Wants To Make ‘Fallout: New Vegas 2′

Fallout New Vegas 2

With Bethesda sounding like they may be hard at work with a potential Fallout 4, they’re not the only studio with a penchant for the apocalypse – developers Obsidian have gone on the record stating they’d love to continue their collaboration with Bethesda Softworks, and make a sequel to Fallout: New Vegas.

The company is currently busy working on South Park: The Stick of Truth and Project Eternity, but returning to the grimy, radroach-infested universe of Fallout may be on the cards for the future. Obsidian CEO Feargus Urquhart has a keen interest in continuing their collaboration with Bethesda, and wasn’t afraid to say it:

“Oh, we’d love to do Fallout: New Vegas 2. It would be awesome. If I think of going from Fallout 1 to Fallout 2, we tried to associate the two areas somewhat closely. It wasn’t just ‘Oh, we’re gonna do this 2,000 miles from here.’ So I think if we were to do Fallout: New Vegas 2 — or just a new Fallout — we would probably separate it from what the internal team at Bethesda’s doing. We’d keep it on the West Coast, because we’re West Coast people. They’re East Coast, so it makes sense.”

Bethesda’s own Todd Howard reportedly echoed this sentiment, an early indicator that both groups would be keen to continue their partnership. Having two studios each working on east and west coast areas would make it much easier for both developers, as they wouldn’t have to worry too much stepping on each other’s feet and producing canonical issues.

While it might be a little early for a direct return to New Vegas, Urquhart had some other ideas on his sleeve that might interest more west coasters – most specifically, a potential return to Los Angeles.

“And we need an interesting confined area. So I mean, it could be LA. Fallout LA. That could be interesting. It’d probably be The Boneyard, which is from Fallout 1. It could be very different. It could be almost a Walking Dead meets Fallout-like thing because of all the radiation.”

Going along with this plan may just be the best idea, as New Vegas is already the most recent recent Fallout title, and fans enjoy exploring new landscapes and making brand new discoveries.

Most of the new-generation Fallout players may never have played the older titles developed by Interplay, but returning to locations like The Boneyard (the ruined remains of LA) would be a great nostalgia-trip for longtime fans. Los Angeles would present a prime location to bring in a lot of urban decay and decadence, whilst containing a lot of historical places to include.

Of course, nothing is official yet, but every game started as an idea like this one. And this one happens to be a good one fans can get behind.

What do you think, Ranters? Would you want Obsidian to make a new Fallout title?

  1. Heck. Yes. I love New Vegas. It’s one of my favorite games (whereas I only liked Fallout 3 the first couple of playthroughs, I can play New Vegas over and over again.) I would just hope they’d be given the dev time they need to make sure more bugs are ironed out at release.

    • Yes, I love the way the two developers play off of eachother, I know TES is a bethesda series, but one done by obsidion would make me die of happiness. (I think having them do a Akavir side along to TESVI would be the best combo).

  2. Obsidian, stay away from Fallout please. You bugged up the 360 version so bad. Could Bethesda had checked? Yes, but that doesn’t excuse you. Every game I’ve played from Obsidian is just either atrocious or meh.

    • Well, don’t get the 360 version. The PC version was very good.

      It’s not like Bethesda’s games are bug free anyway, I’m suffering from an unreadable Elder Scroll in Skyrim at the moment.

      • I had to get PC. And yes, Bethesda isn’t that great with proofing either, but in my playthrough of Bethesda developed games, no bug flat out prevented me from obtaining something like when Obsidian barged in.

        • Obviously you never played PS3 Skyrim

          • No, becuase although I have both, I have the original model ps3, so it’s a hassle whenever I get a new game and it has to mandatory install. Skyrim on 360 though is good. Sorry about it’s shortcomings on PS3.

        • Being unable to read the Elder Scroll at the top of the Throat of the World was pretty game breaking, as was the number of times the Greybeards would refuse to talk to me because I accidentally shouted at them once too much.

          Obsidian aren’t that bad at what they’re doing, and the story was a damn sight more interesting than Fallout 3.

      • Don’t read it! You’ll go blind forever!

      • are u serious ? with or without mods or patches the game has CTDs, BSODs, and other random crashes, go look at beths forum NO ONE wants obsidian to make another fallout, it will just be another game of ineptitude. The ultimate edition still had all these problems where as for me FO3 barely crashes. I like how they stayed with the fallout bible story and kept the environment great but i do think project eternity will kick butt. But for right now i think they should let betsoft handle all fallout titles. Remember it took a lot of games for them to even make a bug detection system – since they refused to let testers play the game a adaquet amount of time. But heres the article as they are the barely scraping by company. http://kotaku.com/5968952/the-knights-of-new-vegas-how-obsidian-survived-countless-catastrophes-and-made-some-of-the-coolest-role+playing-games-ever

    • From what I remember, they only had 13 months to get it ready. That is a very short time slot of what turned out to be my all time favorite RPG.

    • Dude come on. Obsidian made a great game and they still do. I have the 360 version of new vegas and it works perfectly with very little to no bugs. The only bug I found is blasting tumble weeds into space with a shotgun, and I find it very amusing. Furthermore, I highly doubt they would let a company (from most of interplay I might add) make a game with their enigine, slap their company logo on it, and just let it slide right on by them. Bethesda knows what they’re doing by partnering up with obsidian to help make swperate fallout games. Dont doudt them.

  3. I actually like New Vegas more than Fallout 3. Had a lot more going on and made it easier to play through over and over again. Still playing it actually. Would love for them to revisit the area.

  4. There are things i like and things i dislike about fallout new vegas, i love the hardcore system. I hate the 3rd person view it is simply atrocious. I love the weapon modding mechanic, aswell as the different reps. What i disliked the most was the storyline. I know it stayed true to fallout but IMO it was way to unorganized.

    • I thought the story line was good. I do agree it is kind of unorganized. But ir gives you so many choices that you just want to play it over and over.

    • So play in first person?

      • Lol what do you think i do? play in the third person mode i hate? I only play first person.

    • I hated how the game just ended. Fallout 3 you could continue after the ending…

  5. If they can release an unbroken game, i’m down to preorder.

  6. I liked Fallout 3 and like New Vegas just as much. Having played the first 3 Fallout games as well, I’d love to see a return to some of the older areas. New Reno/Boneyard/etc. Though there are some minor tweaks I’d like to see.

    Better graphics, for one. Not that there is anything wrong with the graphics of New Vegas/Fallout 3. But I’d like to see something fresh.

    And a change to the morality/karma feature. You shouldn’t get negative KARMA from “stealing” from a group who outright hates you and you are clearly enemies with. It’s not stealing from them, it’s looting.

    Same with killing certain characters. How the heck do you snipe someones head off who can’t see you and whose friends also can’t see you, and still get a Negative in relations? If they can’t possibly know it was you, you should not get a negative for it.

You should not get a positive with another group for killing someone when there is no confirmation that it was you who made the kill.

  8. I loved fallout 3 but I thought New Vegas, while fun, was also kind of boring. I need more varied environments. Obsidian should have talked to Rockstar about how to create an interesting desert environment, a’la Red Dead Redemption

  9. Ive never played Fallout 3 but I love New Vegas. Such a great game with hours of play! The DLC is absolutely rubbish though!

    • Yeeaaahhhhh get Fallout 3.

  10. I think they should go to like Seattle or something. Mix it up a little bit.

  11. New Vegas absolutely had something going for it that Fallout 3 didn’t capture. It’s what, years later and I’m still playing that game.

    • Funny. I would say the exact same thing but in reverse.

  12. Plz go to Seattle

  13. They could just keep throwing DLC at Fallout New Vegas forever and I would be a happy camper!

  14. Awesome, I loved me some New Vegas. I still prefer the aesthetics and tone of Fallout 3, but that didn’t stop me from having a wicked time in New Vegas. Plus, it had Dave Foley! Maybe one day they’ll set a Fallout game in Ontario so I can see the dead decaying ruins of my countryside… a boy can dream… a boy can dream.

  15. I guess I won’t be buying the next Fallout then. I grew tired of New Vegas rather quickly and it bored me to the point where I was annoyed. The story for as far as I got into it though, was pretty good..

    East Coast Fallout for me!..

  16. Id love to see a game set in San Fransisco. I think that would be great. So many easily recognizable places there.

  17. Fallout new Vegas was a great game. I enjoyed walking the Mojave wasteland and seeing different communities. I liked fallout 3 but it was not the same as new Vegas. I would love to see a crossover between the courier and lone wanderer settin the Midwest.

    • Oh yeah, I would love walking through those prairies and corn fields lol.
      No but I could totally see it being in Chicago

    • wont happen it would go against everything that fallout’s story stands for, not to mention new vegas is like 200 yrs later…

  18. Bring it here I can’t wait!
    Give me more fallout!

  19. ARE YOU KIDDING ME? The first NV is STILL incomplete! STILL full of bugs and the clipping with the weapons (which is the main focus of the game) is TERRIBLE! It was a pathetic game and a massive FAIL! Not even Bethesda can release a bug-free Fallout game so anyone lesser should not even consider it.

    • REGARDLESS of whether they started the franchise or not! For those who will no doubt try to be smart and point that out…

  20. Yes definitely, I loved new vegas, I thought it was closer to the original fallout and had more depth and better game systems and factions.
