Obsidian currently working on next-gen console title

Recommended Posts

Unless TES Online completely subsumes Bethesda, in the manner in which WoW did to Blizzard. Which is to say, it's not happening. And even then, they might just buy a studio to churn out Fallout titles, like an Arkane. Some people might like the idea of Zenimax acquiring Obsidian and having them be a specialist Fallout studio, but that sounds like a terrible fate to me.

 

To be honest though, I'd not be too unhappy to say goodbye to Fallout forever. The genre is broad enough so that titles without the licence aren't lacking for selling points. Wasteland: New Vegas anyone?

NO!  Let Fallout rot in hell Behtesda's incompetent hands for all i care.

 

The first two are among my favorite games, but that is too much. Just have Tim Cain make a new Sci-Fi isometric turn based RPG in the same style as Fallout/Arcanum and we are set.

I'd certainly want to see that happen.

 

Though I wouldn't mind an Obsidian TES spinoff either. That series, at least right now, is a grey ocean of neglected potential.

Bethseda should let Arkane do a TES spinoff, that studio has proven they have world design down to a tee, while the least said about NV in this regard the better.

As for Failout spinoffs, I'd rather see them let Shinji Mikami take a shot at it. The Japanese take on post apocalyptica is varied and broad (ideally something ranging between Jin-Roh, Ergo Proxy and Blue Gender).


The ending of the words is ALMSIVI.

Who has the Arcanum license presently anyway? 

 

Heh...Maybe Kickstarters success shines some light on a sequel being funded? Ah well.. one can dream :(

Kotick: What the **** is Arcanum, some nerd ****?  *orders 10 more CODlikes*

 

Would kill for a steampunky Obsidian game. Just lock Tim Cain in a room until its finished.

Hey Funcroc, long time no see :)

Well. We all know that games based directly on movies suck. Seeing the interest of the big money in backing the Prometheus franchise I consider it very likely we will see a game based on that IP not too soon. I think we can rule out action FPS or strategy game.

Personally, I would love to see a new FPRPG/Adventure game with stealth and horror elements, combining aspects of Thief, Penumbra, Deus Ex and especially System Shock. That would be a perfect prototype for a Prometheus game. I think FP is absolutely neccesary for the "horror" aspect.

Obsidian's cancelled Alien RPG might speak in their favour here - although if I recall correctly that was more inspired by "Aliens" :/

I am once again working for Obsidian Entertainment, the job I have loved the most since driving tanks for Uncle Sam. Currently I am working on an unannounced title.

So Obsidian is making a World of Tanks competitor then?

 

No, obviously a story-centric alternate history tank-RPG :p
