Fallout New Vegas Director Josh Sawyer said he could see himself working on the series again in the future.
He described New Vegas as “a crazy development because it was only 18 months old” but was “super fulfilling and super fantastic”.

“I love Fallout, I love the setting, I could see myself working in it again, but you know, we’ll see where the future takes me.”
Sawyer was also asked what his dream setting might be for a new entry in the series.
“I’m not really sure,” he replied. “I haven’t thought about it in quite a while because again it came into my life and then flew away. In the past I said you know people talked about the New Orleans I think California or the Midwest would also be great.
“I’m a big believer in finding things that obviously I have to be passionate about as a director, but also that the team is really excited about, and that also works within the larger idea of ownership. “
Sawyer then pitted major IP-based executive games against Pentiment, the 16th-century narrative adventure released this week, which was developed by a small team at Obsidian.
“Working on something like Pentiment, which is just its own thing in the middle of nowhere, I can kind of make decisions more or less however I want, but when it’s part of an IP and a franchise broader, it has to somehow work within a larger vision of ‘what is Fallout?’ and I don’t decide everything about it, it’s not my thing,” he said.
“So yeah, I think there are a lot of cool places in the United States. A lot of people have talked about Fallout in other parts of the world as well, I think those are interesting as well. I don’t know no, I think there are a lot of interesting opportunities. It really depends on the moment and the look of the team.
Earlier this year it was claimed that very early discussions had taken place on a potential sequel to Fallout New VegasMicrosoft reportedly expressed a lot of interest in seeing that happen.
