We now know what one of the more than 10 game announcements coming at The Game Awards next week will be. Show organizer Geoff Keighley revealed today that Fallout: New Vegas 2 was among other games that Eternity developer Obsidian will reveal during the awards show.
As announced previously, the title will be published by Rockstar Games' parent company Take-Two Interactive's new indie publishing company Private Division. Microsoft recently acquired Obsidian, but the developer's new game will still be published by Private Division. It remains to be seen how Microsoft may be involved.
The Obsidian website now features a pop-up that displays a number of interesting teasers. According to Kotaku's Jason Schreier, the new game is being worked on by two Fallout 1's designers, Tim Cain and Leonard Boyarsky.
Nothing else is known about Obsidian's new RPG, but Keighley confirmed on Twitter that it is not a mobile game. Additionally, Obsidian already confirmed the game won't have any microtransactions.
The Game Awards 2018 takes place on Thursday, December 6 at 8:30PM EST. Airing live from Los Angeles, the 5th annual show celebrates the best video games and esports of the year, and world premieres the most anticipated games of the future. One of the other reveals could be Alien: Blackout for console and PC, but that's all we know so far.
The Game Awards aren’t available on television, but you can stream them from a variety of different services across multiple devices. Last year’s show was streamed on Twitch, YouTube, Facebook Live, Steam, and Mixer, as well as directly through Xbox One and PlayStation.
