Fallout: New Vegas is still regarded as the best Fallout game out there, even better than Fallout 3 according to many gamers. The Fallout series started off in the strategy realm, but became really popular when it went first-person. Bethesda hired Obsidian Entertainment to make a spin-off, and that project eventually became Fallout: New Vegas.
Now that both Bethesda and Obsidian Entertainment — along with their various franchises — are owned by Microsoft, Fallout: New Vegas 2 may be a reality in the not-so-distant future. On a Giant Bomb podcast, VentureBeat's Jeff Grubb said that the possibility of a sequel has been thrown around. He said the following.
This is very early, but people have begun to have talks and say these words in sentences, and these words are 'Obsidian' and 'New Vegas 2'. We're talking years and years away. There's at least an interest and conversations happening about making something like that actually a reality.
Grubb is known for accurately leaking a lot of stories like these, and has an excellent track record. Once Avowed, The Outer Worlds 2, and possibly Pillars of Eternity 3 are completed, we may see a Fallout: New Vegas 2 from Obsidian Entertainment. However, only time will tell because there are a lot of Microsoft exclusives in the works at both teams.
