I got this sent from Bethesda today. My response was, WTF?
March 31, 2005 (Rockville, MD) -- Bethesda Softworks® is pleased to announce that we have hired the talents of Obsidian Entertainment® to develop and design a Fallout® sequel. The return of this exceptional series is aimed at the core fans of Fallout®, because the company are confident that the game's appeal will extend to a much broader audience. "In this day when good role-playing games are rare, our releases of Fallout 3® and Fallout 4® promise to deliver what gamers have been yearning to play for ages", said Todd Howard, Bethesda®'s Executive Producer. "While we wanted to make Fallout 3® our own game, we thought that the previous, cancelled attempt at it was a great idea, so we're finally giving the Obsidian® team a chance to finish it."
Howard continued, "As fellow gamers and fans of the Fallout series, we are fortunate to have the talents of the original developers of Fallout and Fallout 2 creating a worthy sequel to Fallout and we are confident that Obsidian Entertainment will deliver a game that will be remembered for years to come."
The sequel to Fallout 3, previously codenamed "Van Buren" during its development at Interplay Entertainment® is to resume development at Obsidian Entertainment under the currently given title of "Fallout 4", which may be subject to change. The game is to be produced by Bethesda Softworks LLC (www.bethsoft.com), a Zenimax Media (www.zenimax.com) company.
I'll try and get more news on this. It seems completely out of the blue to me, though I guess it puts Feargus Urquhart's acquisition of the original texture sets for the Fallout games in a different light. Did he get the Van Buren stuff as well?
