It hasn’t been long since Microsoft acquired ZeniMax Media, parent company of Bethesda Softworks for $7.5 billion. A move that saw all of Bethesda IPs like Fallout, Elder Scrolls, DOOM, Wolfenstein, and Quake join the Xbox family.
This opened up the possibility for Fallout: New Vegas 2, a game fans have been begging for. This is because Microsoft already owned the studio behind the original New Vegas, Obsidian Entertainment. Now, they own both the original development studio, and the license for the Fallout franchise.
Obsidian are currently working on a few other projects at the moment, they have the survival multiplayer game Grounded, as well as Xbox exclusive RPG game Avowed, a potential rival to the Elder Scrolls series.
Tyler McVicker, a trusted leaker in the community, and who correctly leaked the release of Half Life: Alyx, has spoken about some of the projects he’s been hearing about. In a video where he announced his new channel after stepping away from his job at Valve News Network, he talks about the rumoured Switch Pro, The Legend of Zelda’s 35th anniversary plans, as well as a bunch of Bethesda and Microsoft games. As well as Fallout: New Vegas 2.
McVicker didn’t say much at all about the game, other than to say he has information on it, so we don’t actually know how far in development the game could be, or even if it’s the original team from Obsidian working on it.
