According to insider Tyler McVicker (Valve News Network), Fallout New Vegas 2 is real and it should be coming in the latter half of this decade. The insider also states that he has some information on the game.
Ever since Microsoft officially purchased Bethesda, the fans of the Fallout franchise have been hoping to hear more about a potential Fallout New Vegas 2 game. As you may know, New Vegas was developed by Obsidian Entertainment, a studio that was also purchased by Microsoft and many Fallout fans feel this is a perfect opportunity to rebuild the collapsed partnership between Bethesda and Obsidian.
And while Fallout New Vegas 2 will sound too good to be true to many players, don't act surprised if Microsoft announces the game in the upcoming years. The original is considered as one of the best Fallout games of all time and it's safe to say that the publisher would love to work on a worthy successor.
And according to a reliable industry insider, they plan to do so. Tyler McVicker, who you may know as Valve News Network (VNN), is one of the most reliable sources for all things Valve and has leaked Half-Life Alyx years before the game was announced. Recently, McVicker decided to retire his VNN brand and focus on the entire industry rather than one single publisher.
Apparently, he has information on several games from Bethesda and one of them is Fallout New Vegas 2. In his latest tweets, he also revealed the potential release windows for Bethesda's upcoming games. Fallout New Vegas 2 is expected in the latter half of this decade.
"I expect FNV2 in the latter half of this decade. I expect TES6 in 2026-7. I expect anything close to a Fallout 5 in the 2030s. Starfield is next, and even that needs another year or two," he tweeted.
Now, as always with these unconfirmed leaks, we suggest you take everything you just read with a grain of salt, until the publisher share more details about their plans for Fallout New Vegas 2. That being said, this is far from a fishy 4chan or Reddit leak. McVicker has built his reputation over the years and probably has some solid sources inside the industry so fingers crossed he got the right info this time around.
