Analyst believes Outer Worlds sequel is in Pre-Production

A senior industry analyst has put in a rumour that he believes a sequel to the Outer Worlds is in pre-production. To be treated with a pinch of salt, Daniel Ahmad, work works as a Senior Analyst at Niko Partners and has tweeted that he believes a sequel is in the works at developer Obisdian.

A senior industry analyst has put in a rumour that he believes a sequel to The Outer Worlds is in pre-production. To be treated with a pinch of salt, Daniel Ahmad, a Senior Analyst at Niko Partners, has tweeted that he believes a sequel is in the works at Obsidian Entertainment.

Of course, this is rather largely caveated that it is early days and could turn into something else. The first-person RPG was a hit with genre fans and has sold over 2.5 million copies as of May 2020. It seems reasonable that a sequel could be in the works given this popularity. We were quite big fans of the original, as you can tell from our review.

Xbox Exclusive?

As a source, like all speculative analysts, rumouring is somewhat part of the job. Daniel did leak the recent Prince of Persia remake and has made several other correct scoops. It may not seem like breaking news that a popular game may get a sequel. However, Microsoft’s acquisition of Obsidian shortly before the original launched in 2019 raises questions of where the game could end up. Could the franchise move to Xbox and exclusivity? Or does that make the IP less likely to move forward?
