The sequel to Obsidian Entertainment’s acclaimed space RPG, The Outer Wilds 2, has already been announced in an official capacity, although details on the game remain scant at best. From the official announcement – which, to be honest was a pretty hilarious one – it seemed that the game was in its earliest stages of development.
However, as spotted by Twitter user Faizan Shaikh, the LinkedIn profile of production director Dan Maas shows that the team at Obsidian has been working on a project since September 2019, which is a month before the release of the first game. This is certainly an interesting bit of information, that the developer already had plans in place for a sequel to a new IP. There’s still no official information about the game’s release date, although if it has indeed been in development for that long, it might end up launching earlier than anticipated.
Obsidian Entertainment has also been working on another action RPG, Avowed which, according to a recent report, is in pre-alpha at the moment- to read more on that click through here. Meanwhile, a report has also claimed that a team led by Pillars of Eternity director is also working on an RPG named Pentiment– read more on that through here.
'The Outer Worlds 2' is in development since September 2019.
– 'The Outer Worlds 1' Was Released in October 25, 2019.
– So TOW 2 was in development before release of First one..so Late 2023 or early 2024 Release Window maybe Possible. pic.twitter.com/yLAL37K8Bm
