Obsidian talks of the future
Obsidian, the team behind Fallout: New Vegas and Alpha Protocol, has baan talking about what lies ahead for the indie studio.
CEO Feargus Urquhart has hinted at a few titles including a new IP for XBLA, a curious licensed title and flirtations with the free-to-play market.
The Black Isler told Game Revolution: "As a studio, we have some original ideas and stories to tell. We have a great idea for a new world we've just started pitching to publishers and we have an older pitch that we really liked called 'Defiance' which is about a fantasy world where, basically, Sauron won. We're also working on an original IP XBLA game, so that hopefully will be out first quarter next year. It'll be an action RPG that's focused on fun, not Dungeon Seige, it's quite a bit different in a different genre with a different camera."
Urqhart added: "We also might throw our hat in the whole free-to-play thing. In the game industry there's a lot of different opportunities for all different kinds of products. There actually is another game that I can't talk about at all... it's a licensed product but when people hear about it, they're going to be 'Well you had to do that. There's no option. If I was a developer and I was offered that I would just do it'."
