Feargus Urquhart has made a few interesting comments in regards to the future of Obsidian Entertainment. According to a report from Gameranx on April 25, the chief executive officer revealed that his company is open to working on several licensed products. The studio recently completed the development of “South Park: The Stick of Truth” for the PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.
Feargus Urquhart disclosed that Obsidian Entertainment has been calling publishers about creating a video game similar to “The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.” Although no one has taken the offer so far, he would still like the pursue the project. He also personally wouldn’t mind working with Electronic Arts on a “Star Wars” video game. His studio worked on “Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II – The Sith Lords” for the PC and Xbox in the past.
Furthermore, the chief executive officer stated that he would love to work on another installment in the “Fallout” franchise as he and other members from the development team worked on the original titles in the past. Bethesda Softworks also previously teamed up with Obsidian Entertainment for “Fallout: New Vegas,” which came out in 2010 for the PC, PS3 and Xbox 360. The next entry, which may be called “Fallout 4,” is rumored to be in development at Bethesda Game Studios. You can check out the statement made by Feargus Urquhart from the CVG interview below:
The answer for Fallout is easy because a lot of us here were the guys who worked on the original Fallout. I was the lead designer on Fallout 2, Tim Cain works here and he was one of the core guys who came up with the original Fallout. Me, Tim, and a friend of ours named Chris Taylor were the guys who worked on the S.P.E.C.I.A.L. system, which was the RPG system in Fallout.
The aforementioned “South Park: The Stick of Truth” was released early last month on March 6. The licensed role-playing game was received well by critics, which translated to good sales. It managed to become the third best-selling game for the month of March in North America, following “inFamous: Second Son” and “Titanfall.” You can find an image showing “South Park: The Stick of Truth” from the official Ubisoft Twitter page with the photo attached near the top of this article.
