Bethesda Has Hired a ‘Fallout London’ Developer
You’re likely to have heard of the Fallout mod by Fallout London. It almost feels disservice to call the project a mod. It’s more like a huge new chunk of DLC set in post-apocalyptic London (who would have thought?). ).
Although it is not official content, the game has a large following, and fans eagerly await its release. This was confirmed in a trailer earlier this month. According to PC Gamer, Ryan Johnson, the mod’s technical advisor, will move to a new position with Bethesda.
The Fallout London team announced the news on Twitter: “e have some extraordinary and bittersweet announcements to you all today,” they wrote. “ur Technical Adviser Ryan Johnson […] will leave the project to work as an Associate Level Designer at Bethesda.”Johnson was a consultant to the Fallout London team, but they have already planned for his departure, so it shouldn’ttaffect development.
They said that Johnson had known of this move for a while and helped compile his knowledge into valuable design documentation so that the rest could continue working in his place. “johnson completed all his required level design tasks, plus a few more we didn’ttexpect. Although the professionalism and dedication of [Johnson] will be deeply missed by the entire team, it brings us joy to know that he will be bringing his incredible talents to a company we love.
Johnson is currently working on Fallout 5. The Fallsout: London team revealed that Dean Carter, their project leader, was offered a job at Bethesda UK to work on 76. However, he decided to continue with the fan project after “some very difficult soul searching”
