Feargus Urquhart, the company’s chief executive, insists Obsidian isn’t working on a new Fallout, though he wants to make another title in the series before pulling out.
Feargus Urquhart, CEO of Obsidian Entertainment, the development studio behind Fallout: New Vegas , would be delighted to work on a new installment of Bethesda’s popular post-apocalyptic saga. It should be noted that this is not the first time that this industry veteran who participated in the production of the first two Fallout installments during his time at Black Isle Studios and Interplay Entertainment in the late 90s has spoken about this issue, while that Josh Sawyer , the director of New Vegas , has also expressed interest in reworking the franchise.
“We’re not working on Fallout , and we haven’t even talked about what it would be like ,” Urquhart stated emphatically in an exclusive interview for Game Pressure. “Our plate is pretty full with Avowed, Grounded and Outer Worlds 2. I don’t know when we’re going to start talking about new games, maybe towards the end of next year. We just have to see what’s going on. That’s the best way to say it. There’s nothing in the plans, nothing on the piece of paper that says that,” insisted the manager.
All is not lost, however, as Urquhart says that “I’d love to do another Fallout before I retire”, although he doesn’t know when that will happen. ” I don’t know when that is, I don’t have a date of my retirement. It’s funny – you can say I’m already 52, or only 52. It’s one of those two, depending on the day. My hope is that’ll happen, but we’ll have to wait and see.” he concluded in his comments.
