Feargus Urquhart doen’t stop thinking about Alpha Protocol’s action-RPG series and the possibility to develop a new chapter for PC, PS4, Xbox One and maybe Nintendo Switch
Fallout, Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic, Neverwinter Nights, Pillars of Eternity … The story of Obsidian Entertainment is full of masterpieces but Feargus Urquhart continues to think only of a title: Alpha Protocol.
The president and CEO of the renowned californian software house, during an interview with colleagues at VG247, has expressed the clear will to develop a new chapter in the Alpha Protocol series to continue on the path traced by the 2010 iconic action-RPG:
If I were going to revisit something from your past, what would it be? Y’know, that’s interesting! I would… what would I want to do…? Um… A part of me I would say… I’d love to do another Fallout, but I kind of want to come up with a better answer than that. I love Star Wars.
We talked a lot before InExile did Torment about if we wanted to do another Torment. Another Torment is interesting to me because I love the ending of Torment. It’s almost like the character walking away from the vault in the original Fallout. If we wanted to return to Planescape and Torment at some point, I don’t know what you’d do, I don’t have a good answer for that. We never did.
I would… I think it’s Alpha Protocol. I would want to go back from everything that we learned and do that because I think there’s a lot that can be done. We had some really cool ideas for Alpha Protocol 2. That would be it. I think I’d want to do Alpha Protocol 2, particularly now that it’s almost like the game has sort of… I don’t want to say aged, because I mean it in a positive sense. It’s found what people love about it and what we love about it, and now I think we could express it differently fixing a lot of the things that weren’t maybe what they should’ve been.
No, yeah. It’d be Alpha Protocol.
The development of any Alpha Protocol 2 should be endorsed by the current holder of this digital intellectual property, namely SEGA. Only time will tell us if this exciting action stealth saga will come out of the limbo of vaporware to land on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and, why not, Nintendo Switch.
