According to reports, Obsidian Entertainment is already working on The Outer Worlds 2 Information comes from reliable Niko Partners’ Senior Analyst Daniel Ahmad.
“Last I heard a new entry in the franchise is being explored, currently in pre-production,” Ahmad said on Twitter. “Could change into something else ofc, but this is the current status.”
Is important to mention that Xbox acquired Obsidian Entertainment, in early 2020 the developer confirmed that a new RPG is already being planned. Last year, in an inverview with Video Game Chronicle, narrative designer of The Outer Worlds, Megan Starks, revealed that Obsidian is “absolutely interested” in developing a sequel to the acclaimed RPG.
“I guess it depends on if people like the game, but we would absolutely be interested in plans like it, yeah(…)I really enjoyed making this game so I would like to work on it a while longer. But I think first our focus is polishing up this game and getting it out the door! The nice thing is, since the game is from the co-creators of the original Fallout IP, they just have notes and notes… we already have a full universe of lore, which is really nice.” – Megan Starks, Narrative Designer at Obsidian Entertainment
The Outer Worlds was complete success for Xbox and Obsidian Entertainment, the game launched for PS4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and PC, however, it is still uncertain if Xbox will continue to push the franchise on multiple platforms, or make the game a Xbox Series X|S/ Game Pass exclusive.
