So after I posted this I discovered that Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire is coming out on the 3rd of April... the day I go back to work after ten days off...

 

It may have been announced prior to my post, but I don't care! This is a personal attack on me for finding their trademark filing. They clearly found out who I was, where I worked and when my holiday was booked, then went back in time and changed the release date to April 3rd!  ;(

 

Now sure, I could push my holiday back by a week but then they'll just delay it and I wouldn't want to bring that on you all. ;)

This is where you buy a Nintendo Switch and surreptitiously play PoE2 on it at work.

Nothing will be bigger than Fallout: New Vegas.

 

Whatever they are working on with Private Division is a AA game, nut AAA.

I think the guy who made the video misunderstood what Feargus said during the Eurogamer video. I myself understood it that Outer Worlds is the biggest project currently at Obsidian, not during their whole existence.

Actually, I hope in AA instead of  AAA  :)

This is obviously KotOR III! :w00t:

 

Ok, no matter what it is, the name sounds awesome.

If however the AA game takes off, it's anyone's imagination what sorts of budgets might get thrown around.

Kind of risky doing an open world game with an AA budget in the current generation.  You'll end up with mixed results like Elex (a game which I adore, but critics are not so kind to it).

Was Fallout: New Vegas even AAA? 

What does AAA mean anymore except a game with confusing preorders, season passes or lootboxes?

No matter how small or big the budget is: I am interested.

Well they certainly didn't have to develop everything from scratch, they build on top of what Bethesda had done. So perhaps that was merely a AA title.

 

After all the ranking has to do with budgets and production scale, not exactly final product.

I'd love for Obsidian to do something New Vegas -esque, but I think that the scope of major open world games such as Skyrim and Fallout, is a wee bit out of their grasp just yet. I'd love to be proven wrong though.

indeed personally id love something a bit more "space" not many of those in the modern age can be called open world
