We're already well aware of the fact that The Outer Worlds 2, Obsidian's sequel to their excellent 2019 sci-fi RPG, is currently in development, with a rather tongue-in-cheek announcement trailer having been aired for the game at E3 back in June.

However, according to a Twitter post by @FaizShaikh7681, which zeroes in on Obsidian production manager Dan Maas' LinkedIn page, it seems the follow-up has actually been in production since all the way back in 2019. The LinkedIn entry suggests that Maas and his team have been beavering away on this next space adventure for over two years.

Does this mean we could be getting our hands on The Outer Worlds 2 sooner rather than later? Well, we haven't got much else to go on just now and, judging by the E3 trailer, which you can see above, there is definitely quite a bit of work left to do before we get to return to Halcyon and our shipmates on The Unreliable.

Obsidian also has the likes of Avowed in the works just now, so it could well still be quite a while before we get to catch up with Parvati and the rest of the gang.

Looking forward to getting back to Halycon when The Outer Worlds 2 finally releases? Let us know below!
