Fallout New Vegas director Josh Sawyer says he’s open to a follow-up and working on the series again one day. Obsidian Entertainment developed the game in 2010 where it released for PS3, Xbox 360 and PC to mostly positive reviews. Fans have been asking for a sequel for years now as it remains, according to many, the best Fallout game in the franchise despite being a spin-off.
Speaking to Kinda Funny Games recently, Sawyer talked about returning to the universe of Fallout New Vegas and potentially working on a follow-up or continuation. He talked about the notorious 18-month development cycle of the game, but ultimately called it “super fulfilling and super fantastic.”
Sawyer said he loves the Fallout series and could see himself working on it again, but for the time being, he’ll just have to see where the future takes him. When asked about where he’d like to set a New Vegas follow-up should it happen, he mentioned areas like the Midwest, California or New Orleans:
“I haven’t thought about it in quite a while because again, it kind of came into my life and then floated away. In the past, I’ve said you know people have talked about New Orleans. I do think California or the Midwest would also be very interesting. I’m a big believer in finding things that, obviously I have to be passionate about it as a director, but also that the team is really excited about, and also that works within the larger idea of the property.”
Fallout New Vegas took place in Las Vegas and the Nevada desert, while Fallout 3 and Fallout 4 took place in Washington, D.C. and Boston, respectively. Fallout 76, the online multiplayer spin-off game, took place in a post-war West Virginia.
Sawyer’s latest game, Penitment, is currently available for Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S and PC. It’s also available on Xbox Game Pass.
