Fallout New Vegas 2 Coming From Obsidian Entertainment?

Fallout: New Vegas developer Obsidian Entertainment would love to do a follow-up to its 2010 RPG. Studio CEO Feargus Urquhart has discussed what his dream pitch for Fallout: New Vegas 2 would be like in a new interview.

Speaking with RPS, Urquhart spooled off his vision for New Vegas 2, based on his previous work on the series at Black Isle Studios, “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."
“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.”
We’re not sure what lies next for the Fallout franchise, but Bethesda’s recent hiring of next-gen devs has sparked a fresh bout of Fallout 4 speculation. Obsidian’s art director Rob Nesler has had a next-generation project listed on his online portfolio for some time now, and he has been working on whatever the game is since April 2012. He simply calls it, “Unannounced Next-Gen Console title.”

Obsidian boss Feargus Urquhart has talked about games he’d love to make recently, including Fallout: New Vegas 2 and a new Star Wars title he wants to pitch to Disney. It’s unlikely that the next-gen game is either of these however.
