Fallout: New Vegas 2 may finally be on the horizon

Fallout: New Vegas 2 may finally be on the horizon

Fallout: New Vegas 2 could be more plausible than we thought...

A sequel to Fallout: New Vegas is more plausible than ever following deliberation by Bethesda on whether it should let other developers make its games.

Bethesda owns some major IPs in the games industry, most notably The Elder Scrolls and the Fallout series, the latter of which being more popular than ever thanks to the success of the TV series.

The problem with Bethesda making such big games though is it takes ages for any of them to come out, as the company basically just released its new IP Starfield, and is now in full-on development of The Elder Scrolls VI.

This puts Fallout 5 in the distant future, and with ramping pressure from Xbox to get a new Fallout game out sooner rather than later, it seems Bethesda are taking all options into consideration to make it happen.

During an interview with Kinda Funny Games this week, Bethesda exec Todd Howard spoke about the time it takes to craft a game like Elder Scrolls and Fallout.

Howard said: “You know, they do take a long time, and so I think one of the things we’re focused on here is obviously making sure they’re of the highest quality, but also finding ways to increase our output, because we don’t want to wait that long either, right? It’s never our plan, but we want to make sure we get it right.”

Bethesda hasn’t handed one of its IPs to another developer since Obsidian Entertainment, a good thing too because it gave us the legendary Fallout: New Vegas.

When asked if he’d be interested in working with Obsidian again, Todd Howard said: “I would say we’ve always had those conversations.”

With that in mind, perhaps Fallout: New Vegas 2 is finally on the cards, especially if the Fallout TV series takes viewers to the glimmering metropolis in its second season.
