    Nathan Grayson of Rock Paper Shotgun continues to reveal tidbits from his interview with Feargus Urquhart at DICE. In a snippet from the interview posted today, Feargus shares his thoughts about a possible sequel to 2010's Fallout: New Vegas. It's interesting to know that despite past grievances, Obsidian and Bethesda are "definitely on good terms".

    “If I think of going from Fallout 1 to Fallout 2, we tried to associate the two areas somewhat closely,” he explained to RPS. “It wasn’t just ‘Oh, we’re gonna do this 2,000 miles from here.’ So 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. 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.”​

    Which, of course, sounds pretty damn enticing. But there’s a lot more to making a bombed-out wasteland than, well, dropping some bombs. Red tape abounds, and Urquhart didn’t deny that it’s kind of a kick in the head. But Obsidian and Bethesda are definitely on good terms, so there’s plenty of hope.​

    “We talk to Bethesda all the time,” he said. “And I think the challenge here doesn’t just apply to Bethesda specifically, but to a lot of publishers in general. But basically, what does all the [current] console crap mean? The challenge in this period of time has been, you have this console transition, and it’s strange that they’re still not announced. But that always creates a disruption in the industry. And now you mix in [the emergence of] mobile and F2P stuff, and it’s left a lot of people reeling.”​

    “So that’s a lot of the conversation we’ve had with publishers. ‘OK, how do we get back to normal – whatever normal is going to be.’ That’s just the process right now.”​

    Hopefully Obsidian can survive the next-gen console blues. The full interview with Feargus should be posted on RPS sometime soon.

    So they are pitching possible AAA projects left and right (in public interviews instead of direct talks with the publishers)? Wasn't soliciting illegal? Their Dr. Jekyll (Kickstarter renaissance) and Mr. Hyde (Star Wars! FO:NV2!) sides keep getting more disparate... Or so it seems to me.

    They should approach Bethesda and do a tun-based isometric Fallout spin-off.

    I don't think there's really a fully formed pitch for New Vegas 2. It's just..."talks".

    I think the guys at Bethesda for all their faults kind of like Obsidian and want to work with them.

    I did not realize until now how it seems to be difficult to create a new IP.
    Depressing.

    Indeed they should.

    A mid budget standalone title that doesn't even try to reach everybody, but does its own thing with utmost polish in its focal points.

    Short of rebooting the IP, this would get me excited for a new Fallout.

    Bethesda only cares about FPS's or TPS's, so its either AAA or bust

    I thought it was obvious that saying "we are talking to Bethesda/LucasArts/Disney" mean that they are in direct talks with the publishers and pitching the ideas to them. THEN they make public interviews.

    What? Why would they announce new consoles when old ones are still getting both Sony and Microsoft fuckloads of money?

    Ah Feargus, poor boy... Attaching last year's everybody's whore to your Fallout does not necessarily make sense...
