The Outer Worlds 2 release date speculation, trailers, and more

While we can only speculate The Outer Worlds 2 release date for now, here is everything we currently know about Obsidian Entertainment's space-themed sequel.

When is The Outer Worlds 2 release date? It’s been a while since the first of Obsidian Entertainment’s space ventures, but it had much of the same DNA as the Fallout series. This isn’t necessarily surprising, as the creators of the Fallout series, Tim Cain and Leonard Boyarsky, were the game’s directors. The Outer Worlds 2 was announced a few years back, leaving us to wonder when it will launch.

As a result, the first in Obsidian’s space adventure series was an enjoyable RPG game, perhaps hampered by the studio’s upcoming Microsoft acquisition. Sadly, though we know The Outer Worlds 2 is in active development, there’s very little else to go on right now. So let’s get into the details about speculating what The Outer Worlds 2 release date could be, as well as any further information or trailers about the upcoming space game sequel.

The Outer Worlds 2 release date speculation

We expect The Outer Worlds 2 release date to land sometime in 2025 for PC and Xbox Series X|S consoles. Obsidian Entertainment is also working on Avowed, a first-person fantasy RPG similar to The Elder Scrolls series, so we’ll unlikely see both games in 2024. There has been no officially confirmed date.

The Outer Worlds 2 was first announced in 2021 during the Xbox Showcase presentation, and all we know about the game is what the tagline says: “New solar system, new crew, same Outer Worlds.” It’s highly likely that it’ll keep the same irreverent sense of humor in its marketing as the first game had.

We’d estimate that the sequel entered development in 2019, following the success of The Outer Worlds original game. With three years in development, it could be reasonably far along the process, btu with Obsidian Entertainment also having found success with the likes of Grounded, its other titles could be taking up its time right now.

The Outer Worlds 2 trailers

The Outer Worlds 2 has, so far, only been shown in one trailer. In it, we see several unique-looking planets, monsters, and humans that are likely not to appear in the final version of the game. The narrator of the trailers explains that, at the time, “the developers haven’t finished the design, or finished the story, or finished any gameplay that’s actually ready to show.”

So far, unfortunately, the above The Outer Worlds 2 release date speculation and the teaser trailer announcing the game are all we have to go on. However, we’re sure to learn a lot more about the space game in the future – as we will have quite the wait until then, check out our recommendations for upcoming PC games for you to look forward to.
