Fallout London's lead technical adviser Ryan Johnson is leaving the project to start working as an associate level designer at Bethesda.
The team behind Fallout London recently revealed that its lead technical adviser Ryan Johnson is leaving the project to start working for Bethesda.
If you're not familiar with the project, Fallout London is an upcoming "DLC-sized" mod for Bethesda’s Fallout 4 being developed by a group of independent modders known as The Folon Team. The mod has been in the works for over three years and was officially unveiled last June. Recently it also got the official announcement trailer showcasing several new locations that were made for the game.
The mod's team shared that Ryan Johnson who previously gave advice to The Folon Team's level designers is going to take on a role of an associate level designer at Bethesda. The announcement also revealed that the team had known about the move for a while and noted that Johnson's departure won't seriously affect the development of the mod as Johnson "has helped collate his knowledge into invaluable design documentation so the rest of the team can work on in his stead seamlessly."
Interestingly, this is not the first Bethesda's move to hire talent from the Fallout London mod team. Last year, Stephanie Zachariadis, who was one of the lead writers for the project, also left the development team after being hired by Bethesda as an associate quest designer.
In the announcement post, The Folon Team also noted that another one of its members, Fallout: London's project lead Dean Carter, also received a job offer from Bethesda, however, after "some very hard soul searching" he decided to decline it to continue working on the mod.
