Bethesda’s Pete Hines just revealed a new Fallout game in the works during a press conference in London- Fallout New Vegas.

It will hit next year for the same consoles as the last (Xbox 360, PS3 and PC). Don’t think of it as a sequel to Fallout 3 or a spinoff in the vein of Fallout Tactics though, this is a completely new title with a new story and characters. It’s also being developed by Obsidian Entertainment, who are no strangers to working on other developer’s properties as they are the guys behind Knights of the Old Republic 2, among other big titles.

Wow. Pete was quick to point out that the game will have no impact on anything that Bethesda has in the works. But Fallout fans will have a helluva lot to look forward to next year.
