One of our favorite titles this year, The Outer Worlds has been a critical and commercial success for Obsidian Entertainment. It’s dialog and narrative options were a breath of fresh air and reminiscent of classic BioWare titles.
Well good news citizens! It seems that there’s more story coming to Halcyon in 2020 as we learned from a message to fans from Obsidian on their forums.
“Greetings employees of Halcyon,
We want to take this opportunity to thank the incredible team behind The Outer Worlds. It is because of their hard work and dedication to this project that we received the Best Narrative, Best Performance – Ashly Burch, Best RPG, and Game of the Year nominations at The Game Awards.
To all of those who voted for us in The Game Awards, you are all fantastic and we are so grateful for your support. The reception to The Outer Worlds has been unbelievable to see, and even just being nominated means a lot. However, the journey isn’t over yet as we are excited to announce that we will be expanding the story through DLC next year! Details will be made available at a later date.
Now we would like to allow our game directors to share a message with you all:
We just wanted to personally thank our team for doing a wonderful job and our fans for their tremendous support.
And Tim would like to say what an honor it was to work with me. – Leonard
Whatever, Leonard. Now that we’ve finished, I expect that certain photographs will be destroyed, as per our agreement.”
It’s been a tremendous week for games and this is the icing on top. We loved our journeys through Halcyon and will certainly be jumping back in when this expansion arrives.
