Avowed and The Outer Worlds 2 already exist in playable form , at least according to what Josh Sawyer wrote on Twitter. We imagine that, at least the second, is still very immature and not close to what the full game will be, since development seems to have started recently, but evidently some progress has been made to allow Sawyer to write a similar comment.
The joke of the well-known designer, who has worked among others on Pillars of Eternity , Fallout: New Vegas and Icewind Dale , was born from a game on Twitter that requires you to indicate the last five games played. Sawyer did this, but distinguished published games from “not yet released” ones, which include virtually all projects in development in the secret rooms of Obsidian Entertainment.
For the record, those published are: Death Trash , Hitman: Blood Money , Backbone , Pathfinder: Kingmaker and Prey ; while the unpublished ones are Avowed, The Outer Worlds 2 and its game, whose title has not yet been revealed.
Avowed, The Outer Worlds 2 and Sawyer’s secret game will be three PC / Xbox exclusives, as Obsidian is now part of Xbox Game Studios. We will see when they will be presented and published. We hope that at least one arrives in 2022.
