Obsidian: Josh Sawyer would see himself reworking on the Fallout license | Xbox One

Yesterday, we were already talking to you about dear Josh Sawyer, experienced industry veteran and Game Director at Obisidian who introduced us to Pentiment, his latest nugget. Prior to the Grounded, Pentiment, and The Outer Worlds era, Obsidian was given the Fallout: New Vegas project in 2009, a title that has become one of the most appreciated by the community. Sawyer has made it clear about his relationship with the famous Bethesda license and Fallout fans should be happy.

Josh Sawyer says he’s open to a sequel and would be ready to work on Fallout again

It was originally Bethesda who contacted Obsidian Entertainment in 2009 because their teams were already developing The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. Obisdian was a studio composed of former members of Black Isle Studios who worked on the first Fallout of Interplay (original studio absorbed by Bethesda). Thus Fallout: New Vegas was born with the support of Josh Sawyer, former employee of Interplay and Black Isle as well as Chris Avellone, the director of the game.

Fallout: New Vegas is a masterful spin-off that has put some pressure on Bethesda’s shoulders to come up with Fallout 4 afterwards. Some fans of the license still consider Fallout: New Vegas as one of the best titles in the saga, desperately awaiting a sequel. Josh Sawyer spoke openly about the subject during the latest episode of the Kinda Funny Xcast podcast.

“I love Fallout, I love the setting, I could see myself working on it again, but you know, we’ll see where the future takes me […]. California or the Midwest would be very interesting. Obviously it has to be exciting to me as a director, but also the team to be really enthusiastic and it has to work within the overall idea of ​​IP. »

Sawyer would therefore not be closed at all to the idea of ​​working on Fallout again one day and he even has some interesting ideas as to places to exploit. We already know that Todd Howard would like to create a sequel to Fallout 4, but between Starfield and The Elder Scrolls VI, we imagine that the return of the Fallout license is not the priority for Bethesda.

The takeover of Obsidian and Bethesda by Xbox could be a game-changer for a possible return of Fallout: New Vegas with Josh Sawyer and Chris Avellone at the head of the project. Only the future will tell us.
