    Imagine New Vegas without the broken tech. If they can pull that off, that would be a great game.

    eh i think the timing was the timing, they had been teasing for the last half year or more that they were working on a "secret project" clearly its far enough along they would share it at some point. MS buys em up asks if they got anything good and they say well this game we been working on. they say great announce it next month. we want to start this partnership out with a bang kinda thing.

    I do not think it was a deliberate kick bethesda when they down thing, but funny to think they would be that bitter about fallout to do this deliberately :p. i think beth was in just such a rush to crap out 76 and then count the truckloads of cash rolling in, that they sort of fell into this announce window.

    But it is great for the memes and all the people that said obsidian > bethesda when it relates to RPGs period. Especially if obsidian can produce a better game technical wise then they done in the past, they consistently killed beth in story telling and characters for a long time.

    Gotta say this game looks awesome and like a lot of fun. Gonna keep my eye on this! :) (wish it would feature coop though)

    It could turn out like a realistic Borderlands with Starwars in it.

    Hmm that gameplay video really put me off, looks like a b level game made by a European dev nobody has heard of.

    Well, this game has been in development long before MS bought Obsidian.
    So, I wouldn't really call this a "MS" game. And... could've even been part of Obsidian's deal... that they get the extra support needed to finish this, and it gets released to however they originally wanted.

    This is coming out on PS4 too, so I'd assume its gonna be on steam as well. This project must have been under development for maybe a couple of years, if not more, and it's likely they have a publishing/distrubution deal already. As in since before the acquisition and can't get out of that.

    There's no reason to believe it would.
    It's not published by MS.

    This seems close to the truth.

    I wonder if this is why Obsidian didn't make a "Fallout 4 New Vegas". Maybe Bethesda did ask them, but they were working on this one.

    well back when bethesda was coming off fo3 that was a hit for them, they were still farming out a bunch of work. since those days they have expanded their studios and farmed out no titles in recent years but 76.

    they as a company decided to do things in house and do things cheaper if slower. so that was part of it maybe the largest part of it, but it also had to tweak bethesda all the new vegas is the only real fallout, NV > bethesda anything. And obsidian had what around 2 years from start to finish on that title?

    2 years obsidian managed to make a deeper role play game in bethesdas own engine than bethesda ever made in its life, and it has to rub them the wrong way.

    Something about Obsidian being denied being paid their bonus from Bethesda for Fallout New Vegas because of a slightly lower than expected metacritic score.
