New Fallout game announced: Fallout: New Vegas

Fallout: New Vegas for the PS3, Xbox 360, and PC is being developed by Obsidian Entertainment

Fallout: New Vegas for the PS3, Xbox 360, and PC is being developed by Obsidian Entertainment, formerly Black Isle Studios and developer of Fallout and Fallout 2, and is slated for a 2010 release date.

Details are scarce, but Bethesda said the game is not a sequel to Fallout 3, it's simply another Fallout game in the universe, and has no impact on Bethesda's Todd Howard and his studio's unannounced projects, which may or may not be Fallout related. Bethesda hopes to show the game for the first time later this year, but remained tight lipped on many details. Bethesda did confirm that Fallout: New Vegas will be the same sort of role-playing game as Fallout 3.
