Obsidian’s been busy chucking coal in the rumour furnace. A rather innocent little Tweet went out from the official Obsidian Twitter account, capitalising on the new 280 character limit. It lists every game Obsidian has developed in its 14-year history, ending with a telltale “???” indicating an unannounced project.

 

Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords

Neverwinter Nights 2

Alpha Protocol

Fallout: New Vegas

Dungeon Siege III

South Park: The Stick of Truth

Pillars of Eternity

Armored Warfare

Pathfinder Adventures

Tyranny

Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire

???

As far as lists of games go, that is an imperious one. Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire isn’t out of course, but the majority of the rest are top tier. It’s those question marks at the end that’s really ruffled our interest though. Just what could it be? One things for sure, Obsidian isn’t exactly a fan of treading old ground - PoE 2 is the only series it’s revisited.

The big question now is, what secret project is Obsidian working on? Personally I would love it be a sequel to any of the top four games listed. Unlikely, I know, but I can but dream of Alpha Protocol 2. Obsidian has also said recently it would love to do a new Fallout game as well though, so there may well be some behind-the-scenes rumblings between and Obsidian and Bethesda.

Anybody got a good guess as to what Obsidian may be working on next? What would you like it to be? Let us know!

I think the most likely is a new IP, Alpha Protocol 2 or Tyranny 2.

Whatever it is it HAS to be bug free, nearly every game that was amazing had back breaking bugs, the worst offender being New Vegas even tho its one of my favourites. They are a great company but they seem to always be rushed :(

I really hope it's a new Fallout spin-off game, set in post-nuclear NYC maybe? It's really thrilling to walk through the denser ruins of NYC.


In first person -> Walk slowly (sneaking) -> You realized there's a feral ghoul behind you, running fast -> Run like hell while shooting randomly -> The ghoul died, your ammo depleted, then there's a pack of Muties in front of you.


Sorry for my english

OMG YES, please be new Alpha Protocol game... PLEASE ! This game deserves a sequel at least. Damn now i got an urge to replay Alpha Protocol again :D


Also Alpha Protocol was not a perfect game (8/10 game for me and was buggy) but it has a HUGE potential ! The game is one of a kind.

I know that people want the next game to be one of the sequels to their favourite franchises, but I'd like it to be an IP, the AAA game industry suffers from a real shortage of those nowadays.

I hope its a new fallout, because a new Kotor seems impossible, or maybe NWN 3?

I wouldn't shy away from Dungeon Siege 4(not gonna happen!). For all it's shortcomings the third one was a blast in cooperative alongside a friend. As for their new project, I'm guessing it's a new IP.

I hope it's another fallout spinoff Fallout New Vegas was an amazing game held back by the engine and bethesda's demands.
