Fan-Made Fallout 3 Remake Cancelled – Project Lead Shares Heartfelt Message
Many of you are likely aware of the fan-made Fallout 3 remake that has been in development. Capital Wasteland has been gearing up to bring the wonderful world of Fallout 3 into the realm of Fallout 4, graphics, quests, dialogue, and all. It was set to be quite the treat for fans, and the team at Road to Liberty has been making exceptional progress, while also keeping the players updated. However, recent communication with original developer Bethesda has led to some less than desirable news for everyone looking forward to the project.
Project lead Nathan took to Twitter to break the unfortunate news with a heartfelt message for those that have been anticipating the project. After all, the fan-made Fallout 3 remake was poised to be something truly special for fans of the franchise. Here is what he had to say:
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 flats what we had unfortunately not foreseen. This contact resulted in us changing our methods to attempt to keep 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 gray areas 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 were 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 project’s release. Myself and the Road to Liberty team do not wish to stain the working relationship with other members of the community and Bethesda.”
It is surely sad to hear that this is the way things have played out, especially considering that amount of gamers that were looking forward to it. However, ceasing production before legal action is taken is probably for the best. This will allow the team to perhaps continue moving forward with another project. Only time will tell.
