Fallout Creator's Disappointing News for Fans of Classic Games

Renewed Popularity Sparks Demand for Remakes

Fallout has experienced a resurgence in popularity thanks to the success of a hit TV show, with fans clamoring for more games in the series. One of the top requests from fans has been for remakes of the original Fallout game and its sequel, Fallout 2, as many modern players struggle with the dated gameplay of the old titles.

Bethesda's Stance on the Original Games

Although Bethesda currently owns the Fallout franchise, the company was not involved in the development of the first two entries. Fans cherish the original games for their deep storylines, thought-provoking moral choices, and challenging gameplay that often leads to peaceful resolutions.

Director Todd Howard's Response

Popular YouTuber MrMattyPlays recently interviewed Todd Howard, the director behind Fallout 3, 4, and 5, about Bethesda's plans for the series. When asked about updating the original games to be more "beginner-friendly," Howard emphasized the importance of preserving the games' original charm and experiences.

Howard stated, "Our main focus is on making the original games available and ensuring they run smoothly. While we've discussed the possibility of remakes, our current development priorities lie elsewhere. I want players to experience the games as they were originally intended, without modern alterations."

No Remakes in Sight

Bethesda has a history of favoring ports, re-releases, and reboots over full remakes of its games. Howard's remarks make it clear that fans of the original Fallout titles will have to settle for the games in their current form, without any major updates or remakes on the horizon.
