Obsidian's sci-fi space opera, The Outer Worlds, is fresh off The Game Awards where it notched nominations for Best Narrative, Best RPG, Game of the Year and a Best Performance nod for Ashly Burch (who voiced Parvati Holcomb). While Obsidian ultimately didn't collect any awards, that didn't dampen the studio's celebratory spirit.

In a forum post, Obsidian's social media manager announced that the story will continue in 2020 through DLC, while also issuing thank yous for all the support the game has received thus far. However, the reveal skimped on details, but promised they'd be "made available at a later date." The Outer Worlds is slated to arrive on the Nintendo Switch sometime in early 2020, so the DLC could possibly coincide with the port.

Greetings employees of Halcyon,

We want to take this opportunity to thank the incredible team behind The Outer Worlds. It is because of their hard work and dedication to this project that we received the Best Narrative, Best Performance - Ashly Burch, Best RPG, and Game of the Year nominations at The Game Awards.

To all of those who voted for us in The Game Awards, you are all fantastic and we are so grateful for your support. The reception to The Outer Worlds has been unbelievable to see, and even just being nominated means a lot. However, the journey isn't over yet as we are excited to announce that we will be expanding the story through DLC next year! Details will be made available at a later date.

Now we would like to allow our game directors to share a message with you all:

We just wanted to personally thank our team for doing a wonderful job and our fans for their tremendous support.

And Tim would like to say what an honor it was to work with me. – Leonard

Whatever, Leonard. Now that we’ve finished, I expect that certain photographs will be destroyed, as per our agreement. – Tim
