Obsidian CEO Discusses Chances of Working on Fallout Again

The folks at Rock, Paper, Shotgun have published another snippet of their interview with Obsidian Entertainment CEO Feargus Urquhart, this time discussing the chances of the company working on the Fallout IP again and whether they'd be interested.

Of course, the answer is that yes, they're very interested:
(If I think of going from Fallout 1 to Fallout 2, we tried to associate the two areas somewhat closely,) he explained to RPS. (It wasn't just '╦ťOh, 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.)

(And we need an interesting confined area. So I mean, it could be LA. Fallout LA. That could be interesting. It'd probably be The Boneyard, which is from Fallout 1. It could be very different. It could be almost a Walking Dead meets Fallout-like thing because of all the radiation.)


(We talk to Bethesda all the time,) he said. (And I think the challenge here doesn't just apply to Bethesda specifically, but to a lot of publishers in general. But basically, what does all the [current] console crap mean? The challenge in this period of time has been, you have this console transition, and it's strange that they're still not announced. But that always creates a disruption in the industry. And now you mix in [the emergence of] mobile and F2P stuff, and it's left a lot of people reeling.)

I wouldn't take this as any concrete sign that Obsidian might work on Fallout again in the near future, but I have to admit it's certainly an interesting prospect.
