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.

There is not a huge difference between the Skyrim engine and what they used for the Fallout games... just tweaks and updates. You can achieve similar results with their older games by simply editing the ini files.

Playing New Vegas right now. It runs noticeably worse than Skyrim (with constant stuttering as it loads in new areas/objects) despite looking much worse and having much more barren environments. New Vegas and Fallout 3 were also far less stable for me than Skyrim is; I can count the number of Skyrim crashes I've encountered on one hand, while New Vegas usually crashes at least once every time I play it.

I didn't have this experience at all with FO3 or NV. I remember all of us playing it and the crashes were hit or miss for people. The only bad bug I ran into was in NV and had some baddies that were holding items I needed under the ground. I jsut reloaded and never had an issue.....others have had so many issues they can't even play the game.

Got lucky I guess.
