Fallout New Vegas Remastered Would Be "Awesome", Says Obsidian




Obsidian game directors Tim Cain and Leonard Boyarsky agree that Fallout New Vegas Remastered would be "awesome", and are still interested in their hugely popular 2011 RPG. This comes as Obsidian unveils The Outer Worlds: Spacer's Choice Edition, indicating that it would love to give New Vegas the same next-gen treatment.

Speaking to TheGamer, Cain says that he'd love to see a "graphical remaster" of New Vegas - something that fellow Game director Boyarsky wholeheartedly agrees with. This came in response to The Outer Worlds production director Eric DeMilt explaining that graphics are never Obisidan's priority, but still sees potential in giving New Vegas a current-gen facelift.

Speaking with us in the run-up to the reveal of The Outer Worlds: Spacer's Choice Edition, DeMilt explains why he feels that New Vegas has retained such a strong following.

"When it came out, it had stability issues," says DeMilt. "It's overcome those and now people are able to go back to that Game, because those characters and the stories are just rich, and people want to be in there."

Fallout New Vegas

But even with the technical aspects of the Game not being as much of a priority for Obsidian, Tim Cain would still like to see a new and improved New Vegas.

"Not that it's up to me, but wouldn't a graphical remaster of Fallout New Vegas be awesome?" says Cain. Boyarsky is quick to agree: "It would be awesome".

New Vegas' following is still incredibly strong. In fact, when Xbox acquired Bethesda - having already acquired Obsidian - many hoped this meant a New Vegas remaster or remake was all but confirmed. Alas, now several years into the Xbox and Bethesda partnership, we're still yet to see this come to fruition. We haven't even had another Fallout Game since then, with Bethesda still focussing on ongoing support for Fallout 76, as well as its various other projects.

However, with the reveal of The Outer Worlds: Spacer's Choice Edition, it's now clear that Obsidian is interested in going back and improving its older titles. So... New Vegas 2 confirmed?
