The Fallout: London mod team in a statement announced lead technical adviser Ryan Johnson is leaving the project to go work at Bethesda as an associate level designer.

Johnson before he left has provided design documents, so the rest of the team can continue to work without any issues. He has also already completed his level design tasks and a few extra tasks that the team did not expect him to do. 

Fallout: London mod team also revealed that Project Lead Dean Carter was offered a position at the Bethesda UK brand to work on Fallout 76, however, he decided to decline the job offer and continue to work on the mod until it is completed.

The mod is expected to be released sometime in 2023.

I always enjoy reading when someone from the mod community gets hired on to a studio instead of the studio just sending out cease and desist orders to put a mod down. Bethesda is arguably the most mod friendly game studio out there, so that wouldn't have happened here, but they certainly didn't need to hire anyone from the modding community. So a feel good story all around.

Reminds me of old school Valve.

If they could only go with a new engine and continue mod support, they would be one of the best out there.

It's a tactic that's been used in recent years, so I'm not going to be surprised if the rest get hired and then the mod gets dropped into the abyss.

They needed to hire em coz their own workers are quite incompetent!

76 should really be a wake up call for their arrogance.

I have a feeling that Fallout London is eventually going to get shut down via the rest being hired or a C&D being filed.

While it is nice to see modders being hired, I know they don't get full free reign to do what they do best, and I'm not fond of modders having their work shutdown because X/Y company feels threatened at not doing a better job than modders.

You have a "feeling"? This kind of mod has been appearing on Bethesda games for years. There is literally a Skyrim story conversion mod with it's own Steam page. Why is Fallout London suddenly going to be the mod where they reverse everything they've allowed in the past?
