Obsidian’s Fallout New Vegas Bonuses Based on Metacritic Score

Responding to questions over layoffs and a project cancellation, Obsidian has revealed their agreement with Bethesda regarding the development of Fallout: New Vegas. Specifically, Chris Avellone tweeted that “FNV was a straight payment, no royalties, only a bonus if we got an 85+ on Metacritic, which we didn’t.” New Vegas scored 84, thus – in spite of over $300 million in sales – the bonus was not paid.
