Fallout: New Vegas 2 rumors kick into overdrive

The developer behind the 2010 action-RPG Fallout: New Vegas has expressed interest in making a new game in the popular franchise.

Speaking to IGN, Obsidian Entertainment’s Josh Sawyer, who also directed New Vegas, said that the studio would “certainly love to” develop a new entry in the post-apocalyptic franchise if given the chance.

"I would certainly love to work on a Fallout game again," said Sawyer. "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."

As a testament to New Vegas’ popularity among gamers, Sawyer revealed that his team gets asked “more questions about Fallout than anything else."

Fallout: New Vegas was released for PlayStation 3, PC, and Xbox 360 back in October 2010, and takes place three years after the events of Fallout 3 in the year 2281 following a nuclear apocalypse. 

Despite shipping with a number of bugs and glitches, the game was a critical and commercial success, selling an estimated 12 million copies worldwide across all three platforms and spawning the Ultimate Edition re-release.

The topic of a Fallout: New Vegas 2 popped up back in 2013, when Obsidian chief Feargus Urquhart commented:

"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," he continued. "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."
