Just as Fallout 3 is soon to enter production, Bethesda Softworks announced that Obsidian Entertainment is going to be the developer of the next Fallout title, Fallout 4.
March 31, 2005 (Rockville, MD) -- Bethesda SoftworksÂ® is pleased to announce that we have hired the talents of Obsidian EntertainmentÂ® to develop and design a FalloutÂ® sequel. The return of this exceptional series is aimed at the core fans of FalloutÂ®, because the company are confident that the game's appeal will extend to a much broader audience. "In this day when good role-playing games are rare, our releases of Fallout 3Â® and Fallout 4Â® promise to deliver what gamers have been yearning to play for ages", said Todd Howard, the game's Executive Producer. "While we wanted to make Fallout 3Â® our own game, we thought that the previous, cancelled attempt at it was a great idea, so we're finally giving the ObsidianÂ® team a chance to finish it."
Howard continued, "As fellow gamers and fans of the Fallout series, we are fortunate to have the talents of the original developers of Fallout and Fallout 2 creating a worthy sequel to Fallout and we are confident that Obsidian Entertainment will deliver a game that will be remembered for years to come."
The sequel to Fallout 3, previously codenamed "Van Buren" during its development at Interplay is to resume development at Obsidian Entertainment under the currently given title of "Fallout 4", which may be subject to change. The game is to be produced by Bethesda Softworks LLC (www.bethsoft.com), a Zenimax Media company.
It looks like Fallout fans are in store for some very delicious treats next year.
