A supposed "leak" for the upcoming Xbox Showcase has fans hopeful for a Scalebound revival, but there are some red flags to take into consideration. However, there's another game that has fans buzzing: Fallout New Vegas 2. Obsidian Entertainment's beloved post-apocalyptic RPG is still a fan favorite, and rumors are swirling that a sequel is in the works and could be announced at Xbox's E3 2021 showcase.
The Xbox & Bethesda Showcase was packed with huge announcements, ranging from news about Overwatch 2, Diablo IV, and the long-awaited Halo Infinite. But one announcement that would have had fans absolutely freaking out was Fallout New Vegas 2. Unfortunately, no such announcement was made, but that hasn't stopped fans from speculating.
Fallout New Vegas director Josh Sawyer says he's open to a follow-up of the Obsidian Entertainment RPG, briefly taking about possible storylines and narrative direction. Sawyer suggests that a sequel would have to be a new story with new characters, but still set in the Mojave Wasteland.
That was quite the slew of announcements and updates from the Xbox and Bethesda Games showcase, with Starfield closing out the show with a teaser trailer. While the reveal of Fallout New Vegas 2 would have been a massive moment, it's important to remember that there's no concrete evidence that such a game is in development.
