Pentim will not have a sequel or spiritual successor to Obsidian

Josh Sawyer, Director of Penetration and Head of Game Design at Obsidian Entertainment, assures that the narrative adventure will not be coming to Xbox Series X, Xbox One and PC (Steam and Microsoft Store) neither sequel nor spiritual successor Because the idea that was running in his mind for many decades was always to make the same story.

The historian has been asked by a user (via GamingBolt) on his Tumblr profile whether a “spiritual sequel” would be called a “palimpsest” (or palimpsest, an ancient manuscript that preserves traces of past writing that was artificially erased). Is). Sawyer responds: “Indeed, the original original title of the painting was Palimpsest!”

The director of Fallout: New Vegas and the Pillars of Eternity explains: “The [equipo] Microsoft is considered legit potential difficulty in registering that name So I renamed it Pentimento.” And about a possible sequel, he says: “And no, i have no plans to make a sequel de pentimente, spiritual or otherwise”.

“I always treated it as a story”, says the veteran developer, who started at Icewind Dell as a designer. Of course, he doesn’t care that other teams pick up the baton: “[Pentiment] Can inspire ideas (hopefully, not just me!) in the future, but I’m happy with where we left off.”

Works on Obsidian Avoid and The Outer Worlds 2

For now, Obsidian’s future goes through Avoided, a first-person role-playing game for the Xbox Series S and PC that we can see on June 11 at the Xbox Games Showcase conference; and The Outer Worlds 2, a sequel to the action RPG published in 2019, of which we’ve only seen a preview trailer without any gameplay.

In Our analysis of Pentiment we said it is “One of the Most Original Games” We Enjoyed in 2022, “A game that does not shy away from talking about fundamental issues such as the importance of history, knowing our social roots, the influence of Catholicism on European society, how progress is not the same for all, of class struggle, of feminism and on many other relevant and current issues, looking at the past from the present”.
