Today I have some sad news for you, the community. Recently we have communicated with Bethesda regarding our planned method to implement the voice acting and other audio from Fallout 3 Into the Capital Wasteland. During this Conversation it became clear our planned approach would raise some serious red flags that we had unfortunately not foreseen .This contact resulted in us changing our methods to attempt to continue working.
After some thought it appears there is no fully Legal way for us to continue developing the Fallout 3 in Fallout 4 Portion of The Capital Wasteland. Projects like these have always existed in a Gray area of the law but we as a team value our connections with many members of the amazing dev team that is Bethesda Game studios.
To Reinforce my point, The Laws around this have not changed. If we were to continue and complete Fallout 3 in Fallout 4 Legally I as the project lead would most probably be Liable for any acts of Piracy and Copyright infringement resulting from the projects release. My self and the Road to Liberty team do not wish to strain the working relationships with other members of the community and Bethesda.
At first we were very reluctant to halt work and decided to start looking into Re recording all the Voice acting. We quickly realised we would have to replace iconic voices like Liam Neeson, Malcom McDowell,Ron Perlman and of course the phenomenal Eric Todd Dellums. Without some of these voices fallout 3 looses its charm and personally I cant bring my self to replace Them.
If at any point in the future it becomes fully legal for us to continue working with the blessing of Bethesda and Zenimax we will.
This decision was not taken lightly and it pains many people on my team including my self to have to halt development of the Fallout 3 Story. I personally would like to apologise to the many members of the community that love Fallout 3 as much as I do. Im sorry we couldn't accomplish our dream.
