Fallout 4 development, Obsidian vs. Bethesda

By Daniel Chubb - May 5, 2013

There is no doubt that the majority of gamers waiting to see Fallout 4 confirmed with an announcement know what developer they want building this game, which of course would be Bethesda. This is exactly why a rumor that landed just a couple of days ago upset a few Fallout fans when it highlighted a tiny chance of another developer.

Obsidian Entertainment make great games and while a recent job listing points to a unique next-gen game, it wouldn’t be good enough for a lot of gamers if that game ended up being Fallout 4. The job is for a top-level designer and game details will obviously be kept secret, so we don’t know if it will be for the PS4, Next Xbox or both.


Fallout 4 development, Obsidian vs. Bethesda – We have no doubt that this next-gen title by Obsidian will be a great game, they have a good track record in our opinion, but Fallout 4 must be developed by Bethesda.

The NV test had been put in place for a number of reasons, which included seeing how it panned out and also considering their legal problems at the time. Since then Bethesda has made it clear they want to make their main games for the big franchises.

Bethesda not loved by all – we spent well over 800 hours in Skyrim and loved every minute, even if a few hundred hours included issues with the PS3 system before a patch fixed the bugs. While we love what Bethesda did with Skyrim, it is true that some gamers started to hate the developer after the problems they had on PS3, so could we really see some of these people wanting Obsidian Entertainment rather than Bethesda for Fallout 4?

Take a look at the job listing above and let us know what you think about the developer abilities for both Obsidian and Bethesda, if you could choose who would you have develop Fallout 4? We have also seen some interesting ideas for Fallout 4 vehicles in another article.
