It should be noted that Chris Avellone, left Obsidian, there was a thread about it over on NeoGAF.

More indie devs releasing gaming trends that died out 20 years ago. Yawn.

Eh, this seems highly unlikely. Even if they have the code from 20 some odd years ago they pretty much have to rebuild from scratch since it can't be too much like Fallout or they will be sued.
