    This is almost non-news because like, yeah, of course a Fallout New Vegas sequel "could work", but I'm posting it because we all need something to hope for.

    Feelings about the acquisitions aside, that Obsidian, inXile, and Bethesda now fall under Microsoft's umbrella at least makes me hopeful for the future of Fallout and Elder Scrolls. The potential for great new games is quite high, beyond whatever it was Bethesda alone would have delivered.

      TBH I kind of wish that if Obsidian were to work on a Bethesda property again, it would be TES. The world of Fallout just feels a bit worn out to me, and The Outer Worlds was already enough of an unofficial sequel to New Vegas that I don't feel an actual sequel is necessary - though if either of the two games would get a sequel, I think The Outer Worlds is the better candidate.

        I feel that.

        I think Shamus Young summed it up best in his video "Bethesda never understood Fallout" when he said that, in Bethesda's games, everywhere you go, on either side of the post-apocalyptic United States, it's radscorpions, super mutants, death claws, and the Brotherhood of Steel.

        For what it's worth, Obsidian is now working on Avowed, a first-person role-playing game set in the same world as Pillars of Eternity. I'm excited.

        I'll be happy with either, as long as it's available on PlayStation!

        The Outer Worlds is getting a sequel, actually.

    That's unexpected, I'd sooner expect Fallout 5.

      This was the outcome many of us have been hoping for ever since Microsoft brought Obsidian and Bethesda together under the same roof. We don't want the next Fallout 4, we want the next Fallout: New Vegas! We want meaningful dialogue choices, rich world-building, and complex storytelling. That's what FNV is about. This has the potential to be amazing.

      Though like I mentioned in another comment, I'm gonna be really annoyed if PlayStation gamers like me are excluded.

      It wouldn’t really conflict with Fallout 5. The nice thing about New Vegas 2 would be that it would basically be independent of Bethesda, who’s busy with Starfield.

    I’m afraid they’ve been holding off on Elder Scrolls 6 because they’re trying to create a cash cow like GTA 5 with the franchise. What the world needs is Co Op Elder Scrolls, though. Not ESO but...

    I feel like I remember hearing this was in early discussions a few months ago as well.
