Will Fallout: New Vegas 2 Happen? Is Microsoft Already talking About It?

Obsidian now has no legal obstacle to make a sequel for the 2010- released Fallout: New Vegas…


VGC has reported on what Jeff Grubb (writing for VentureBeat) said on the paywalled Giantbomb show Grubbsnax. He claims that Obsidian is already groping around at Microsoft for a sequel since Bethesda, the Fallout licensee, is now owned by the Redmond-based company, so they should “go next door” for the license and permissions…

Grubb said, “This is very early, but people have begun to have talks and say these words in sentences, and those words are ‘Obsidian’ and ‘New Vegas 2’. We’re talking years and years away. There’s at least an interest and conversation about making something like that a reality. A lot of people at Microsoft think that this could work, and there’s a lot of interest to make it happen.”

In 2013, Obsidian CEO Feargus Urquhart said: “Oh, we’d love to do Fallout: New Vegas 2. It would be awesome. 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.” Indeed: Bethesda Game Studios is set in Maryland, while Fallout: New Vegas’ plot focused on Arizona, California, and Nevada.

There are now 23 studios in Xbox Game Studios, as Microsoft’s takeover of Bethesda (or its parent company, ZeniMax Media) meant Bethesda Game Studios, id Software, ZeniMax Online Studios, Arkane, MachineGames, Tango Gameworks, Alpha Dog and Roundhouse Studios joined Microsoft’s fold. Obsidian has been part of the group since 2018. So now it’s really up to Phil Spencer to make Fallout happen: New Vegas Part 2. After all, it would stay in the family…
