Obsidian Entertainment’s The Outer Worlds was exactly the game fans of the developer and the genre had been hoping it would be- but, of course, there’s always room for improvement. This is the kind of series that would benefit hugely from iteration with sequels, even more so now that Microsoft own the property and the developer.

And it seems a sequel might be in very early stages of development. Taking recently to Twitter, Niko Partners senior analyst Daniel Ahmad said that a new game in The Outer Worlds series is “being explored” and is currently in early pre-production- which probably means ideas for the games are being pitched and going back and forth.

Possible sequels to The Outer Worlds have, of course, been mentioned in the past by both Obsidian Entertainment and Microsoft. Last year, Xbox Game Studios boss Matt Booty talked about wanting to expand the series with future releases. Meanwhile, co-director of The Outer Worlds, Leonard Boyarsky, has also spoken about the possibility of The Outer Worlds’ sequel being open world.

Of course, if The Outer Worlds 2 is made (which seems likely, given the success of the first game), it will be published by new owners of the IP Microsoft, and not previous publishers Private Division- which, of course, means that the game might end up being exclusive to Xbox and PC.

For now though, Obsidian Entertainment are currently working on their next big RPG, a new first person fantasy title set in the Pillars of Eternity universe, called Avowed.

The Outer Worlds is currently available on Xbox One, PS4, PC (where it will soon also became available on Steam), and Nintendo Switch. Its first of two expansions, Peril on Gorgonlaunched last month.
