The Outer Worlds 2 officially announced

The Outer Worlds was an open world-RPG in the vein of Fallout, developed by Obsidian Entertainment – the studio behind Fallout New Vegas. Despite Both Bethesda and Obsidian falling under the Xbox umbrella now, The Outer Worlds proved to offer a unique world in its own right, with the team confirming that a sequel is on the way.

Announced as part of Xbox and Bethesda’s E3 showcase, The Outer Worlds 2 was showcased in a tongue-in-cheek manner, poking fun at cinematic trailers that show little more than game titles and some atmospheric shots.

That being said, such is the case with The Outer Worlds 2, which is clearly far from release. Though there was no release date in sight, it was confirmed that The Outer Worlds 2 would feature a “New solar system, new crew, same Outer Worlds. The Outer Worlds 2 is coming…and when that day is closer we will show you more.”

As with almost every announcement at the Xbox and Bethesda conference, The Outer Worlds 2 will be coming to Xbox Game Pass day-and-date. Unlike the first game, which came to both PS4 and Nintendo Switch, the game’s sequel will be exclusive to Xbox – more specifically the Series X|S.

While many fans had hoped that Xbox now owning both Bethesda and Obsidian meant that a sequel to Fallout New Vegas was in the cards, it seems clear that the team is fully invested in this new and original IP. Hopefully The Outer Worlds 2 is even better than the first game.
