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

on April 19, 2014 8:05 AM

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.
