This year at E3 we saw the official announcement of The Outer Worlds 2. Then it was confirmed that it was too early to show the game. However, the premiere shouldn’t be too far away.
As Faizan Sheikh noted , one of the developers’ LinkedIn profile has information that ToW2 has been working since September 2019. Interestingly, the first part of the series was released in October, so the first work on ToW2 began even before the premiere of the first game.
Of course, there is no talk of full production from 2019. Most likely then preproduction began, and full work on the game could begin in 2020 or even in the last dozen or so months. There are no details, but the above information gives a positive impression of the premiere.
Therefore, it is possible that The Outer Worlds 2 will be released in a maximum of two years. Let me remind you that the Obsidian studio had some business and Avowed, for example, is waiting for the premiere. Meanwhile, other projects are being developed. However, the recent announcement of ToW2 indicates that Obsidian does not intend to wait too long before releasing a sequel to the market, and I believe we will see the first concrete material from the game next year.
