Chris Avellone changed his Facebook profile picture today to a drawing of a stickman hugging Fallout’s iconic Vault Boy and saying “I missed you so much.”
For those not in the know, Chris Avellone was a writer on Fallout 2 and Fallout New Vegas, as well as countless other critically acclaimed RPGs like Knights of the Old Republic, Planescape Torment and more recently Tides of Numenera, Divinity Original Sin 2 and the Bethesda published Prey.
Now, there’s a good chance this means nothing and Mr. Avellone just made a fun little drawing but there’s no doubt he knows the kind of speculation something like that would incur.
As a huge fan of New Vegas I can only hope this means he’s going to be writing something Fallout related again. Whatever it is, I can’t wait to see it.
