"almost everyone" who worked on Fallout: New Vegas onto their next project. The team is "pretty busy" again.
Vacations were already taken by a lot of staff "earlier this month and last month" so they return refreshed. Right now New Vegas is out worldwide.
"Almost everyone who was on New Vegas was slated to move over to another project within a week or two after it went out, so they're all getting ramped up on other projects now," said senior designer Chris Avellone. "We're keeping them pretty busy."
"We've been filling vacation requests from everyone so it's been building up for a while," he added. "We actually ended up doing a lot of that earlier this month and last month so everyone's coming back now and getting into the swing of things."
Unfortunately for Obsidian although much more so for fans, Fallout: New Vegas hasn't experienced the best of game launches as numerous game-breaking issues have been reported alongside more tolerable but still annoying bugs and glitches.
Already a patch has been released sorting out over 200 quest and script issues, as well as tackling some save game corruption causes. There's still a way to go before New Vegas can breathe easy, much like Fallout 3 needed lots of Bethesda support.
Fallout: New Vegas released on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC last week. Currently the latest Wasteland wanderer is living it up.
