Fallout: New Vegas devs already on next project

Almost everyone ramped up for next game, says designer

You'd think the gigantic team behind the latest mega-RPG, Fallout: New Vegas would be getting a well-earned rest in a Haven holiday camp somewhere about now, but the Obsidian team's revealed it's already moved over to the next project.

Senior designer Chris Avellone explained that most of the New Vegas team took it's holiday earlier this month, and now it's all "ramped up" for the next big thing.


"Almost everyone who was on New Vegas was slated to move over to another project within a week or two after it went out, so they're all getting ramped up on other projects now," he said. "We're keeping them pretty busy."

"We've been filling vacation requests from everyone so it's been building up for a while," he added. "We actually ended up doing a lot of that earlier this month and last month so everyone's coming back now and getting into the swing of things."

In the same interview Avellone defended Fallout's "impressive" GECK engine, noting that now that the mod tools are out the Obsidian team's excited to see what the community comes up with.

"Hopefully we'll have plenty more RPG spin-off to play in the next year or so," he said.
