The Outer Worlds 2 is happening. The sequel to The Outer Worlds will release sometime for Xbox Series X|S and PC. The game’s existence was announced during the Xbox/Bethesda E3 2021 showcase and was accompanied by a very tongue-in-cheek (on completely on-brand) trailer.
Based on the tone of the trailer, it’s anyone’s guess (except Obsidian, of course) if any of the footage is actually of The Outer Worlds 2. It looks good, but who knows if it’s at all indicative of the final product. We’ll just have to wait and see.
Outside of that, there’s nothing else to go on with The Outer Worlds 2. The sci-fi RPG is in development, and it will release on Xbox Series X|S and PC. That’s it. The trailer showcases the first game’s tone and sense of humor while poking fun at AAA game trailers. It’s gorgeous and compelling in many different ways, and perhaps shows some of the tech on display in the final product. Maybe.
Regardless, we really enjoyed The Outer Worlds, saying in our review that it “is a goofy, full to the brim RPG that liberally samples from other giants in the genre. It’s a fun romp through a neon universe.” We also very much liked its DLC expansions, Peril on Gorgon and Murder on Eridanos.
Stay tuned for more on The Outer Worlds 2, and if you haven’t checked out the first game, consider giving it a whirl. It’s out now on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
