Fallout, Fallout 2 and Tactics Re-Rated by ESRB; New Release Imminent?

Following the settlement of the lawsuit between Bethesda and Interplay that awarded the full rights for the Fallout series to the house of The Elder Scrolls, GOG and Steam were forced to remove the classics Fallout, Fallout 2  and Fallout Tactics: Brotherhood of Steel from their catalogs, leaving fans wondering about what would happen of the earlier chapters of the beloved RPG series.

Something finally seems to be moving, as today the ESRB published a new rating (obviously a M for Mature) for all three games.

The fact that the three games have been re-rated means that Bethesda requested it, which indicate probable plans for a re-release of the three classics.

While for the moment there isn’t any further information on that possibility, it’s definitely good to see that things are finally moving in the right direction.

      Whoops, freudian slip.

    Damnit. When I first saw the Fallout Poster Boy on the front page I immediately though this was announcing Fallout 4.

    Fallout Vita?

    If they ported all 3 to PS4 as one bundle, I’d bite.

    Can’t be too hard considering the age of the content and ease of porting to PS4.

      Point-and-click on PS4?

      • MTM2

        Touchpad, analog sticks etc.

        Lots of ways round it, a good game is a good game, controller input can be modified to work on PS4.

          Would be pretty cool if they could port it to PS4, or even android and ios, if it’s possible.

    All these games are vastly superior to Fallout 3. Only New Vegas managed to capture the REAL Fallout feeling in the game. Don’t get me wrong Fallout 3 was a good game, but not a good FALLOUT game. Real Fallout fans (gamers who played it before 3) will all prefer New Vegas.

      I agree with you, however New Vegas glitches prevented me from beating it. Didn’ t like that game too much :/

      Exactly my thoughts, Fallout 3 didn’t even feel like a Fallout, although landscape was better than the one in FONV, Bethesda just used things that were unique to FO franchise (BoS, Enclave, Super mutants etc.), not paying attention to the lore in previous games, and just mashed it up together, as an old FO fan I didn’t like what happened to it. Don’t even make me talk about its writing and dialogues.

    It´s coming back to GOG. YESSSSSS
