If you’ve already fashioned a treehouse city to rival the Ewoks of Endor, hoarded enough Nuka Quantum to anesthetize a Deathclaw and are in the position of wanting a little more Fallout, a recent Twitter interaction suggests that it’s not just the players who’d like to see a follow-up (via. GameSpot).
Eric Fenstermaker, a writer and designer for Obsidian Entertainment, responded to a question asked on Twitter (via. Gamerant) surrounding the possibilities of the studio making another Fallout game:

There’s no word from Fallout’s publisher Bethesda yet, but considering Fallout 4‘s recent launch in November 2015, a return to the charismatic scrappiness of the Wasteland might not be happening any time soon.
Since New Vegas‘ 2010 release, Obsidian have been praised for other such successes as South Park: The Stick of Truth and Pillars of Eternity, which was recently nominated Game of the Year by IGN.
Although an entirely new Fallout might not be on the cards just yet, games director Todd Howard highlighted Bethesda’s receptiveness to fans back in November. As reported by GameSpot, he mentioned that the fourth post-apocalyptic installment’s DLC will be influenced by fan feedback:
“This game is huge, but it’s not just this launch,” Howard said. “It’s going to be well deep into next year. It’s like the game is done, but… because until everybody plays it, it’s not really done. Because what they bring to it is really important; we’re going to see what people like, what they want more of, what they want different, and we’re going to do that.”
Fallout 4 released on November 10 2015 for PC, Xbox One and PS4.
