Shacknews has posted an interview
with Bethesda's vice president of PR and marketing, Pete Hines on the new Fallout
game to be developed by Obsidian Entertainment: Fallout: New Vegas
Mr. Hines has stated that Obsidian and Bethesda have been discussing the stand-alone addition to the Fallout
franchise "for a while now" but has not disclosed for exactly how long "for a while" means.
I think we tried very hard not to put much in the way of parameters on them. To let them kind of come up with the idea. So we didn't go to them and say, we want a game that is set here, and--we didn't do that. We said, "What would you do with it? If we were going to do this, what would you guys like to do?"
If what he says is true then this game could turn out to be very interesting. Almost as interesting as Mike Leigh night on BBC 4, yesterday.
