Too-good-to-be-true details about Fallout: New Vegas appearing in the next issue of Game Informer were eventually proven false, but the base of the rumor -- Fallout: New Vegas being unveiled in a magazine soon -- was true. Official Xbox Magazine has confirmed the spin-off in development at Obsidian Entertainment should be revealed in the pages of its next issue.
OXM used the term "should" because it's possible that might not happen. Magazines typically leave such a caveat about upcoming content in the event that a publisher changes their mind or something else compromises the game's ability to appear on the cover of the publication.
Still, OXM or not, we should know what's happening with Fallout: New Vegas soon, just a few months before Obsidian (hopefully) delivers their much-delayed spy-RPG for Sega, Alpha Protocol.
The Fallout: New Vegas issue of OXM goes on sale February 11.
