In the wake of Bethesda’s second Fallout title, Obsidian Entertainment has said that they are highly interested in developing another take on the series.
Having previously developed Fallout: New Vegas, which was largely based on the content of the cancelled Fallout: Van Buren, Obsidian has set their eyes on another post-apocalyptic game.
In response to a fan’s question on Twitter, Eric Fenstermaker, a leading writer at Obsidian who worked on South Park: The Stick of Truth and Pillars of Eternity, said that the heavyweight RPG developer is “always up” for working on Fallout.
After Bethesda purchased the rights to the Fallout franchise and released Fallout 3, Obsidian was commissioned to produce a subsequent title while Bethesda was busy with Skyrim. Founded by members of the Fallout creator Black Isle Studios, Obsidian is closely linked to the Fallout games.
Obsidian’s CEO, Feargus Urquhart, has previously said that he is keen to continue working with Bethesda on Fallout. He hinted that the two could continue to develop separate wings of the franchise, Bethesda developing the games set on America’s east coast—Fallout 3 in Washington DC and 4 in Boston—while Obsidian could take the western settings of Vegas and California.
At the moment however, Bethesda still have a large amount of content to release for November 2015’s Fallout 4. With a supposed “$40 value in a $30 package” load of DLC to be released in the upcoming year, it will be some time before another Fallout game will be in the works.Related Topics: Black Isle, Eric Fenstermaker, Fallout Series, Feargus Urquhart, Obsidian Entertainment
