A fan discovers a possible Easter Egg in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt from Fallout 2 that continues a cut story from the 1998 video game.

Way back in 1998, Fallout 2 hit shelves to critical praise and commercial success. Unfortunately, there were things going on behind the scenes with its publisher, Interplay Studios. By the time Fallout 2 was released, the company was in dire straits financially. As a result, the Interplay sold the rights to the Fallout franchise to Bethesda in the 2000s, which went on to make their own series of games in the franchise.

In the second game, the player encounters a character named Sulik who is a possible companion. His backstory was that he was from a village located by the Great Salt Water and was searching for his sister, Kurisu. Unfortunately, the quest to find his sister wasn’t included in the game due to time and budget constraints and would have been expanded on in the original version of Fallout 3. Now it appears that this storyline might have been finished in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt as a hidden detail in the Skellige Islands.

In a recent post, Reddit user Spaced-Cowboy pointed out a similarity between Sulik’s storyline in Fallout 2 and another story in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. In the game, Geralt encounters an unnamed NPC who mentions he is looking for his sister. Later on the player encounters a character named Kurisu in the Skellige Islands. She mentions that she lived with her family until pirates attacked, kidnapping her and several others with plans to sell them off as slaves. Eventually, she was able to escape the pirates, finding shelter at a local temple before finding passage home.

 None of this of course is exactly proof. However, it is a bit of an odd coincidence that the characters would share the same name and such a similar backstory. In addition, Spaced-Cowboy cites an article that states that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt lead quest designer Mateusz Tomaszkiewicz was a big fan of the narrative of Fallout 2. In fact, it’s only one of two games in the franchise that doesn’t feature a Vault Dweller as the protagonist. While it doesn’t prove anything, it does make the possibility of it being a deliberate Easter egg that much more likely.

Black Isle Studios ultimately shut down in 2003. Many of the developers went on to help create Obsidian Studios which, in turn, developed Fallout: New Vegas in 2010, which was arguably more of a sequel to the first two games than the Bethesda sequels. Reports have also indicated that the studio may be in early talks to develop a Fallout New Vegas sequel. Sadly, though, the tale of Sulik and his sister was one that was not resolved in the game, and it appears fans will have to be satisfied with what happened in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is available now on PC, PS4, Switch, and Xbox One.
