Bethesda's contracted Obsidian - staffed by a lot of former Fallout 1/2 programmers - to code up something called Fallout: New Vegas for them. No word on if it'll simply re-tread the Oblivion/Fallout 3 engine, but it's heavily implied.

Following the surprise announcement of a new title so soon, the second surprise is that Bethesda is not developing the title. Instead, Obsidian Entertainment, the studio behind Knights of the Old Republic II and Neverwinter Nights II (and its expansions), will be working on New Vegas. Note, no art was released of this title, so take the above screen, and pretend it has more tacky neon signs.

Bethesda Vice-President of PR and Marketing Pete Hines stressed, "This is not a sequel to Fallout 3, and this won't impact whatever Todd Howard and his group over at Bethesda Softworks are working on. This is just another Fallout title." He further elaborated that New Vegas is still an RPG, and will impart the same feel and experience as Fallout 3; "it won't be a different type of game like Fallout Tactics or Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel were," Hines commented.
