Not For Fallout 4, But Obsidian Wants to Return to Fallout Setting
Developed by Obsidian Entertainment, Fallout: New Vegas was an excellent addition to the Fallout franchise. The game managed to maintain the quality established by its Bethesda-developed predecessor, Fallout 3, while seeing the addition of a worthwhile main questline that was more in line with Fallouts 1 and 2, originally developed at Black Isle Studios—the developers who would later become Obsidian.
It comes as no surprise then that Obsidian would like to return to the universe—if Bethesda permits it.
In an interview with Gameranx, Obsidian’s Chris Avellone expressed his company’s desire to return to the Fallout setting. He did so in address to fans clamoring for information about Fallout 4, a game which is speculated to be in development at Bethesda.
“All of the Fallout stuff is totally up to Bethesda. While we would love to do another Fallout game again, that is totally up to them,” Avellone said.
Should Obsidian ever return to the franchise, it surely wouldn’t be for Fallout 4, but there’s no reason why we wouldn’t see an expansion or a spinoff title in the vein of Fallout: New Vegas somewhere down the line.
Avellone also stated that the studio would like to try its hand at Knights of the Old Republic 3.
