Coming not even an hour after reports that developer Bethesda had registered new trademarks for both Fallout-related movies and TV series, the studio has made a surprise announcement at a London event that a new game in the franchiseFallout: New Vegas — is due for release on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC in 2010.

The title will be developed by Knights of the Old Republic II/Neverwinter Nights 2 creators Obsidian, and while no overt details were announced, Gamasutra quotes Bethesda PR Pete Hines as saying:

It’s not Fallout Tactics — it’s not Brotherhood Of Steel. It’s another Fallout game. It has no impact on what [Bethesda director] Todd Howard and his guys are planning.

As Gamasutra notes, a number of Obsidian employees are former staff of original Fallout series creator Black Isle, who famously had begun work on their own Fallout 3 coded named Van Buren as early as 2003.

  1. Mega-Rad(s)! I just accidentally beat F3 this weekend, so now I have to decide if I’m going to try to play through again on evil, or (more likely) finish out some of the campaigns I never managed to do the first time.

    Question: Do you know if you are maxed out in level if you can go up higher levels in the expansions, then go back to the original content with those new levels?


  2. I too accidentally beat Fallout3. It was one of the most frustrating gaming experiences ever, especially since my main autosave was after the final set of events had been set in motion. When does that story-continuing expansion pack come out?
