Obsidian has also confirmed that Boyarsky had joined Obsidian via twitter, but what position he has at Obsidian or what he is working in has not yet been revealed.
Obsidian is currently working on a new Pillars of Eternity style RPG called Tyranny, but with Boyarsky joining the team and Obsidian being interested in making another Fallout game they might just be doing a the next Fallout game.
