Franchise fallout is at its worst since the launch of the much maligned (and very beugué) Fallout 76, but if we are to believe the well-informed Jeff Grubb, Microsoft would have a plan to restore the luster of the formerly reference post-apo title. Leaders of Microsoft Gaming (the game division of Microsoft) would indeed discuss the studio Obsidian Entertainment (which he has owned since the takeover of Bethesda) for a possible development of Fallout New Vegas 2. “A lot of people at Microsoft think this could work and the interest in making it happen is very strong” adds the journalist.
Given the cult status of New Vegas, the news has the effect of a small bomb even if of course nothing has yet been confirmed on the side of Microsoft or Xbox. Released for PC, Xbox 360, and PS3 in 2010, Fallout New Vegas is considered by many fans to be the pinnacle of the Fallout franchise. The action of the game takes place in the continuity of Fallout 2 but revives the density of the narrative framework of the very first Fallout, with many scenario branches, remarkably written characters and searched dialogues.
