Lootboxes are quite possibly one of the most toxic additions we’ve seen happen in modern gaming – and it seems that the developers behind Fallout: New Vegas, Obsidian agrees. In their forums, the developer stated that “The answer is simply: ‘no.’ No microtransactions, of any kind, in our game.”
Obisidan’s next title, an upcoming RPG is set to be published by an indie division belonging to the same publisher behind hit titles GTA V and the upcoming Red Dead Redemption, Take-Two.
“We’re extremely excited about our upcoming RPG, and we know you are too,” Obsidian said (via IGN). “We wish we could tell you all about it right now… but we’re going to hold off until the time is right.”
