- Bethesda has offered jobs to two modders from the team responsible for Fallout: London.
- One of them took a position as a level designer.
- The other did not take up the offer, as he decided to continue working on the mod as a project manager.
The result achieved by the creators of Fallout: London apparently delighted not only players. The promising mod caught the attention of Bethesda itself. Some members of the modding team have received job offers from the studio.
This, by the way, is not the first time the company has decided to reach out for new employees from this source.
From modder to developer
Fallout: London is probably the most promising mod for Fallout 4, which has been announced so far. It's almost a full-fledged DLC moving the game's action to post-apocalyptic London.
This means a completely different culture, technology, factions and a storyline that puts more emphasis on other themes than before. In turn, all this looks great on the first extensive video regarding the mod.
So it's no surprise that Bethesda has also taken an interest in the topic. The studio apparently appreciated the work of modders, because two people from the team responsible for London have received job offers, which the group boasted on Twitter.
The first of the people in question is Ryan Johnson, who served as chief technical advisor on the level design. He has already moved to a new workplace, but fortunately this should not affect the progress on Fallout: London.
The modding team had known about the move for a long time. Johnson therefore had time to hand over his responsibilities to other developers. He also had time to complete all the level design tasks he had previously undertaken.
In his new job he will take on a familiar role, for Johnson has just been hired as a level designer.
On the other hand, we are dealing with a different situation in the case of Dean Carter, who serves as a project manager in the modding team. He has been offered to join Double Eleven's development team for Fallout 76.
However, he did not take up the offer, as he intends to stay with the group working on Fallout: London until the end. So he's not going anywhere until the modification is completed.
Bethesda likes modders
Interestingly, this is not the first time Bethesda has reached out to someone from the team working on Fallout: London. Last year, an offer to move to the studio was received by Stephanie Zachariadis.
She was the lead writer of the modder group. In her new job, however, she has taken on the role of assistant task designer.
Fortunately, her departure did not affect the progress of work on Fallout: London. Stephanie Zachariadis managed to create the outline of the entire story and complete her tasks.
We will find out what the results of her efforts look like in 2023, when Fallout: London will be available for download for free. We will be able to run it, as long as we own the full version of Fallout 4 along with all the DLC.
