Obsidian’s next-gen project already looking “great” – CEO

Friday, 3rd May 2013 11:52 GMT By Dave Cook

Obisian Entertainment CEO Feargus Urquhart has confirmed that the team is indeed working on a next-gen project and that it’s shaping up nicely.

Urquhart told Eurogamer last night that the project, “Is already looking great”, in response to a wave of rumours regarding Obsidian’s first next-gen project.

We covered the spree of LinkedIn profile quotes and portfolio entries that pointed to a next-gen title here. One developer even had “Unique next generation game,” listed on his CV under his active projects.

Some suggested that South Park: The Stick of Truth had gone next-gen, but Ubisoft announced yesterday that the game was still on track for a 2013 release.

So the question remains: What is Obsidian working on at the moment? It’s a big team that has a track record of producing multiple games at any one time. Between South Park and Project Eternity, could something Star Wars or Fallout-flavoured be lurking in the shadows?

Let us know what you think below.

    Sequel to Fallout: New Vegas. Please Bethesda, give them a franchise to do stuff with it.

    New Star Wars would be awesome too.

    Both of you get out, it’s an Star Wars RPG or I will use Force Storm on everyone!

    One more thing it better be about a Sith Legend. I’m tired of being good guy jedi.

    I hope this will be a good game, I pre ordered it long ago.
    Pretty much just because it’s South Park and sounded like an interesting game at the time.

    After the fiasco with Lucas Arts (Thanks Disney, see you in hell), it would be nice to see a decent SW themed game.

    To be honest though, I’m more excited to see some proper South Park and Eternity gameplay rather than any “next-gen RPG”. Plus, Eternity kinda is next-gen.
