Bethesda, developers of The Elder Scrolls series and Fallout 3, have announced a new game for the Fallout franchise to be developed by Obsidian Entertainment, developers of KotOR II and NWN2. Entitled Fallout: New Vegas, the game is said "not [to be] a sequel to Fallout 3" but a stand-alone title slated for release in 2010.

"It's not a sequel to Fallout 3," says Pete Hines, Vice President of PR and marketing at Bethesda, "it's just another game in the universe, and it has no impact whatsoever on whatever Todd Howard and his team are working on. We approached Obsidian and they were, like, yeah. That was a pretty easy conversation. It's not Fallout Tactics, it's not Brotherhood of Steel; it's another RPG."

MCV is reporting that the game will utilise the Gamebryo engine employed in both Oblivion and Fallout 3 and that Chris Avellone of Fallout 2 (and Planescape: Torment) fame is heading up the development team.

Given that the founding fathers of Obsidian Entertainment (Feargus Urquhart, Chris Parker, Darren Monahan, Chris Avellone, and Chris Jones) are all veterans of Fallout 2's long-dead developer, Black Isle, this looks like something to keep and eye on, rather than something to commit ritual suicide over.

I 'gin to be a-weary of the sun,
And wish the estate o' the world were now undone.
