Obsidian on Fallout: New Vegas 2 Prospects

Obsidian CEO Feargus Urquhart comments to Rock, Paper, Shotgun on the possibilities of revisiting the Fallout series after the studio created the well-received Fallout New Vegas. He expresses enthusiasm for returning to the property the former Black Isle developers helped originate, though also notes that the current "disruption of the industry" caused by the life-support phase of the console cycle is an obstacle to making deals with publishers, in spite of their friendly relationship with Fallout owner Bethesda Softworks. Caution aside, he discusses how it would make sense for them to create another west coast version of the Fallout setting, since they are a west coast studio. RPS caps this by paraphrasing a response from Bethesda's Todd Howard, who expresses cautious enthusiasm for another spin of the New Vegas wheel. They promise to publish their complete interview with Urquhart "very, very soon." Thanks nin.

id be interested in a far-future Fallout setting.. where people are only a few decades away from being nationalized, etc - like a mostly restored wasteland, with unexplored weirdness just under the surface

i like that sort of combo ancient/futuristic type settings.. kinda like that anime "Alexander" or some of the Final Fantasy stuff (in theory)

i think it could be cool to see the post-apoc wasteland type setting where it is post-post-post-apoc

I know all of these types of games are all inspired by the original wasteland/zone story of "Roadside Picnic" by Arkady Strugatsky, Boris Strugatsky, Ursula K. Le Guin circa 1972 (and STALKER is a direct relation) but it would be cool to see more not so modern stuff....the writing, possible story lines, etc in a book written very well from behind the iron curtain is a great read - i recommend it to anyone who is a fan of post apoc games/movies, etc.

Can probably find it locally for 1 buck if you still venture to book stores.
