The developers behind Fallout: London have revealed that Bethesda has hired another of its star members, further reducing the team behind the DLC-sized mod for Fallout 4. A message shared by the Fallout: London team can confirm that Ryan Johnson, who served as the project’s Lead Technical Adviser, has moved on to greener pastures at Bethesda, where he’ll be serving as the company’s newest Associate Level Designer. Johnson’s hiring follows that of Stephanie Zachariadis, who was hired by the Elder Scrolls and Fallout developer in August 2021 for her apparently excellent work as lead writer. Even Dean Carter, Fallout: London’s project manager, was offered a position at Bethesda’s UK office to work on Fallout 76, but he declined in order to see Fallout: London to its final release. An official announcement trailer shared by Fallout: London’s developers this past weekend has confirmed that the mod will be released in 2023.

Fallout: London is a DLC-sized mod for Bethesda’s Fallout 4. As a continuation of the base game, the mod will allow the player to visit the previously unexplored post-apocalyptic environment of London.
As a divergence from previous official titles in the series, Fallout: London is not set in America. Visiting a totally new setting allows for us to explore totally new cultures which have not homogenized with their American counterparts. It also allows us to explore pre-war European history, and the effects the Resource Wars had on the class structured society of pre-war Britain.
