The Outer Worlds is getting a sequel, and it will be exclusive to Windows PC and Microsoft’s Xbox Series X/S consoles. The game is due to feature a “new start system with a new crew”, a factor that will likely make the game a completely separate experience from the game’s multiplatform predecessor. 

Obsidian’s The Outer Worlds 2 had a CGI trailer at Microsoft’s Xbox/Bethesda showcase, which gave the game no release date, showcased no gameplay told us nothing aside from the fact that the game is in the works. 

With their CGI trailer, Obsidian won E3 by delivering the most self-aware CGI trailer that has ever been released, humorously admitting how pointless the trailer is and how the game’s character designs and gameplay are not ready to showcase. If you want a few laughs at the game industry’s expense, watch the trailer below.    


Obsidian Games is currently hard at work on multiple projects, such as their Avowed RPG, which is based in the Pillars of Eternity Universe, and the early access shrunken garden basebuilder Grounded.
