Should one ask practically any fan of Bethesda’s wildly popular post-apocalyptic RPG franchise what their favorite entry is, it’s almost certainly a given they will answer that their most beloved installment is the Obsidian Entertainment-developed Fallout: New Vegas. Of course, the developer is also quite fond of its creation as well, with the game’s director Josh Sawyer recently stating that he and the rest of his team “would love” to make another sequel in the series.
This testimony of Sawyer’s comes from the latest episode of IGN’s series known as Expert Mode, with the Fallout: New Vegas director espousing his affinity for the post-apocalyptic franchise, and Obsidian Entertainment’s desire to return to it at some point in the future. According to Sawyer, “I would certainly love to work on a Fallout game again. 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.”
Of course, Sawyer and Obsidian Entertainment are currently working on various projects not related to Fallout: New Vegas or the post-apocalyptic RPG series, but the director went on to explain that the Wasteland-themed game is the subject that is most frequently brought up by fans of the developer. As Sawyer puts it, he gets “more questions about Fallout than anything else,” stating that the question regarding Obsidian’s potential return to the franchise is something “people ask all the time.”
This is far from the first instance of an Obsidian Entertainment developer expressing their wish to return to the Fallout universe, as Eric Fenstermaker, creative lead on Pillars of Eternity and South Park: The Stick of Truth, said that the studio definitely wants to make another game in the series. In fact, Fenstermaker went so far as to declare the post-apocalyptic RPG franchise to be a “really fun property to work with.”
All things considered, while Obsidian hasn’t officially been confirmed as working on another title in the series just yet, a Fallout: New Orleans trademark filing could lead to the studio returning to the realm of Pip-Boys and Deathclaws sometime down the line. That said, though, we will just have to keep our fingers crossed to see if the developer eventually gets tapped by Bethesda to head up another sequel for the Fallout franchise set in the Big Easy.
Fallout: New Vegas is available now for PC, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360.
