You might well be wondering what's going on with the Fallout series. Starfield and The Elder Scrolls VI are clearly the main priorities at Bethesda Game Studios for the next few years, so when might we next see the company's much-loved post-apocalyptic RPG franchise return?
Unfortunately, we have no concrete ideas at the moment, but one industry insider believes there are quite a few Fallout-related irons in the fire at Bethesda/Microsoft... including remakes of Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas.
It might not be an official game, but take a look at the excellent trailer for the fan-made Fallout: London below:
This news comes via leaker and industry insider Tyler McVicker, formerly of the Valve News Network. McVicker has been a proven source on all things Valve for a long time now, most notably leaking the existence of a Half-Life prequel years before Half-Life: Alyx was announced. When asked if Fallout 3 and the Obsidian-developed New Vegas would be receiving remakes, during a brief segment on the future of Fallout in a recent video, he replied with a simple but decisive "yep".
As exciting as this prospect is, it's worth noting that McVicker's track record on rumours outside of Valve is far from proven at this point, so keep an extra-large pinch of salt handy for now.
McVicker also suggested that Bethesda plans to support Fallout 76 for many years to come with lots of new content, which isn't too surprising given how well the studio managed to turn that game around. He also doubled down on his previous claim that we're getting a Fallout: New Vegas 2, or at least a similar spinoff developed by an "unknown company".
It's certainly a possibility that we could see this spinoff from a company outside of Bethesda or Obsidian. Microsoft owns the Fallout IP at this point, after all, and could hand the franchise to any one of its many, many talented studios. Watch this space.
