In a recent Q4 2021 financial earnings call (transcript via The Motley Fool), Take Two Interactive CEO Strauss Zelnick provided an update on sales numbers for Obsidian Entertainment’s The Outer Worlds. It sold in more than three million units till date following the release of Murder on Eridanos. Where does the franchise go from here though?

Private Division revealed to Tweak Town’s PR/gaming editor Derek Strickland that, “Moving forward, Obsidian and Microsoft will be publishing future iterations in the franchise, and we’re absolutely thrilled to see where they take it.” Strickland noted on Twitter that this doesn’t mean The Outer Worlds 2 has been confirmed, though there are rumors of it being in pre-production. All it reveals is that if a new title is developed, it will be Microsoft/Obsidian that publishes it and not Private Division.

Obsidian Entertainment was acquired by Microsoft in November 2018 and is now part of Xbox Game Studios. It’s currently developing the first-person medieval fantasy RPG Avowed for PC and Xbox Series X/S. Insider reports indicate a target release date of late 2022/early 2023 though we’ll need to wait for more details in the meantime. Stay tuned, especially with Microsoft being part of E3 2021 on June 12th to 15th.
