Feargus Urquhart, CEO of Obsidian Entertainment, the development studio in charge of Fallout: New Vegas, would be delighted to be working on a new installment of Bethesda’s popular post-apocalyptic saga. It should be noted that it is not the first time that this industry veteran who participated in the production of the first two installments of fallout during his stint at Black Isle Studios and Interplay Entertainment in the late 90s spoke out about this issue, while Josh Sawyer, director of new vegashas also expressed interest in returning to work on the franchise.
“We are not working on falloutY we haven’t even talked about what it would be like“, affirms Urquhart emphatically in an interview granted exclusively to Game Pressure. “Our plate is quite full with Avowed, Grounded Y The Outer Worlds 2. I don’t know when we’re going to start talking about new games, maybe towards the end of next year. We just have to see what happens. It’s the best way to say it. There is nothing in the plans, nothing on paper that says that,” insisted the manager.
However, all is not lost, as Urquhart says that “I would love to do another fallout before I retire”, although he doesn’t know when it will happen. “I don’t know when it will be, I don’t have a date for my retirement. It’s funny: you can say that I’m already 52 years old, or that I’m only 52. It’s one of those two things, depending on the day. My hope is that that happens, but we will have to wait and see.“, he concluded in his comments.
One of the most acclaimed titles in the series
“The only flaw of Fallout: New Vegastogether with the increasingly outdated engine, is that the wow factor has lost its punch after fallout 3. It is a conservative title in many aspects, it corrects almost everything that could be improved from the third game and incorporates some aspects present in the project. van burenthe canceled sequel that was to be the original fallout 3 from Black Isle Studios, giving players the opportunity to enjoy the features that are promised in that game – the influence of factions, among others -. But in practice, at times It seems to us that we are playing a very large expansion or modificationbut expansion after all, with the same -many- virtues and the few known defects”, we commented in our analysis.
