It looks likely that Obsidian’s next game may be called “The Outer Worlds”. The reason this seems likely is that they recently filed four trademarks for the title “The Outer Worlds”.
“It’s… a thing. A science thing. It hurts robots. Don’t worry about it.” – Arcade Gannon, Fallout New Vegas.
Obsidian’s next game to be called “The Outer Worlds”
The patents were filed late January. The four trademarks are regarding “entertainment services, namely, providing online games,” “board games/trading card games,” “printed material [such as books, pamphlets, or instruction manuals] in the field of computer or video games,” and “computer game software”. If The Outer Worlds is anything like Pillars of Eternity 2 then we’re in for a treat.
We’ll let you know further news about their new project as soon as it develops. So, what is your guess as to what “The Outer Worlds” may be? Please comment below and let us know.
