Bethesda is rumored to be readying Fallout 4 as the next big game out of the developer, but on the off chance that they aren’t, Obsidian Entertainment would love to do a follow-up to Fallout: New Vegas. According to a recent interview with the CEO of the studio, they’d be interested in doing another Fallout game, as long as its kept separate from what Bethesda is working on.
In a recent interview with RPS, Feargus Urquhart talked about possible settings for sequel to New Vegas and how they’d do it if given the opportunity.
“I think if we were to do Fallout: New Vegas 2 – or just a new Fallout – we would probably seperate 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.”
As for potential locations for the next game, Urquhart thinks LA could be a candidate if given the greenlight from Bethesda, saying a Fallout game in Los Angeles “could be interesting.” The developer says that Obsidian talks to Bethesda “all the time”, but the generational transition is causing a disruption in the industry.
This disruption could be what’s keeping Bethesda from announcing their next game in the Fallout franchise, which many believe to be Fallout 4. Rumors have been circulating about this next game for some time, with Bethesda having been rumored to be scouting locations for their next post-apocalyptic title.
