Right, we can't have been the only ones to think of a Fallout: New Vegas sequel once Xbox bought both Obsidian — the New Vegas creator — and Bethesda, owners of the Fallout series. Well, it looks like Xbox has already thought of the prospect.

On Jeff Grubb's latest Giantbomb show, the leaker aficionado said that talks of New Vegas 2 are happening at Microsoft, as transcribed by VGC.

This is very early, but people have begun to have talks and say these words in sentences, and these words are ‘Obsidian’ and ‘New Vegas 2’ [...] We’re talking years and years away. There’s at least an interest and conversations happening about making something like that actually a reality.

So, if this rumour is to be believed, a sequel to the beloved Fallout: New Vegas could indeed be happening. Of course, we need to take this with a big pinch of salt, but it does make sense, as all involved parties are now under Xbox Game Studios. Microsoft itself seems keen too, as Grubb added:

A lot of people at Microsoft think that this could work and there’s a lot of interest to make it happen.

That's all we know so far, but we'll be keeping a very close eye on this rumour.
