After the long legal disputes over the rights to the Fallout franchise, Bethesda now fully controls the series as of the start of 2014. Because of the change in hands over the rights to the series classic titles, early Fallout entries have been removed from digital downloads services for the time being. Fans should expect to see them back up soon after the developer confirmed on Jan 2 that they are currently in the process of getting the games back up on Steam.

The titles affected include Fallout, Fallout 2, and Fallout Tactics. Bethesda revealed that they were required to bring the games down in order to change publisher info and legal text. While the availability to purchase these titles digitally was removed from all outlets, the developer has stated that getting the games back up on Steam is their priority. In fact, it hasn’t even been confirmed at this time whether Bethesda plans to digitally release the classic Fallout titles anywhere else.

It has been years since the post-apocalyptic Fallout series has received a new entry. Rumors have been circulating that Bethesda is possibly working on a new Fallout game but the developer has chosen to remain quiet on the subject. What is known is that Todd Howard and the entire Skyrim team is now working on an unannounced new project.
