Bethesda Softworks has announced the upcoming release of a new Fallout game, entitled Fallout: New Vegas, at its London Showcase.
The title is being developed by Obsidian Entertainment and will appear on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC - set for release next year.
"It's not a sequel to Fallout 3, it's just another game in the universe, and it has no impact whatsoever on whatever Todd Howard and his team are working on," said Pete Hines, Bethesda's vice president in charge of public relations and marketing.
"We approached Obsidian and they were, like, yeah. That was a pretty easy conversation. It's not Fallout Tactics, it's not Brotherhood of Steel; it's another RPG."
Earlier today, it was revealed that Bethesda had also submitted trademark applications for a Fallout TV series and movie.
