Here’s your Monday afternoon rumour to get you excited at the prospect. A trademark listing posted to NeoGaf hints at a potential follow up to Fallout: New Vegas. Yep, the trademark listing claims that Fallout: New Orleans could be the next title, most likely from Obsidian. But is there any truth to this rumour?
The logo isn’t the most convincing one either, so it’s hard to say whether it’s legitimate or not. Fallout: New Vegas released in 2010, developed by Obsidian Entertainment, who have been a busy studio ever since. For a few years, they worked on South Park: The Stick of Truth which released in 2014, but are not involved with the follow up, The Fractured But Whole.
Other titles involving the studio are Pillars of Etertnity, SkyForge and Tyranny. Armored Warfare is their latest project, so where would Fallout: New Orleans fit in, if they are involved?
What’s even more interesting, is if you check out Obsidian’s Joshua Sawyer’s Instagram, and cycle back 36 weeks, you will find this interesting post, which you can see below. Field notes, eh? Doing some research for an upcoming game by any chance?
Perhaps the trademark itself is fake and whoever created it was aware of the below image, using it to add weight to the ‘joke’? With Fallout 4 less than a year old, it’s a bit soon to be discussing another title in the series, and fans will surely be awaiting another Elder Scrolls game in the meantime, excluding the remastered Skyrim coming this year.
