Obsidian Entertainment, developer of Fallout: New Vegas, still has great love and respect for the post-apocalyptic open-world franchise. Despite not being involved with Fallout 4, the studio hopes that it will be called by Bethesda Softworks to breathe life into the next possible installment.
“I would certainly love to work on a Fallout game again,” game director Josh Sawyer told IGN in a recent interview. “I know there are tons of people at Obsidian who would love to work on a Fallout game again. If we were given the chance, we would certainly love to.”
It is not only Obsidian Entertainment that is interested in getting back behind the wheel. Even after Fallout 4 was released to great reviews, there was a large portion of fans that wished the installment to have featured Obsidian Entertainment.
Sawyer revealed that he frequently gets asked about coming back to the franchise. In fact, he believes that he has probably fielded “more questions about Fallout than anything else” in the past years. There is good reason for that.
Fallout: New Vegas was released in 2010 as the fourth major installment in the series. It was hailed for its consistent narrative and compelling attributes. Back then, the developer was already discussing ideas about a sequel. However, those plans never materialised.
Obsidian Entertainment is currently working on Pillars of Eternity: Deadfire, which recently enjoyed a successful crowd-funding campaign. It is scheduled for launch sometime next year. Perhaps Bethesda Softworks might get in contact after that.
Fallout 4, released in November 2015, will be receiving a Game of the Year edition next week. It has a ton of content, signature to how the publisher handled the post-release plans for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.
