Fallout London Release Appears Soon as Dev Declares ‘the End Is in Sight’

Fallout 4’s expansion-sized mod, Fallout London, appears to be on the verge of release after developer team FOLON said “the end is in sight” pending final QA testing.

In a post on X/Twitter, the FOLON team sought to dispel speculation by confirming that it had sent “multiple builds” to CD Projekt Red’s Steam competitor GOG and was awaiting the “final green light.”

“Once they complete the process of verifying that Fallout: London and its installer work on all supported machines, we should be ready to go,” the FOLON team said. “Yes, we have our own installer and downgrade as well.”

“It is in all of our best interests that this final QA process is completed in its entirety, and we are very grateful to GOG for helping us. While it may seem like not much is happening, we can assure you that the department leaders have been working tirelessly behind the scenes during this time to make the final version as good as possible. The end is in sight.”

Fallout: London was originally scheduled to arrive on April 23, 2024, but current Fallout developer Bethesda has announced a surprise update for Fallout 4 that the mod’s developer feared would impact its release.

“We’ve just been relentlessly refining and testing to make things as stable as possible for all of you in time for this release,” said Dean Carter, FOLON Team Project Lead at the time. “But with the new update coming out just 48 hours later, the last four years of our work may simply be doomed.”

Carter then lamented that Bethesda, which had made it clear it was aware of Fallout: London, had failed to inform the FOLON team of its plans. “It left us, for lack of a better term, a little confused,” Carter said.

Fallout London is one of the most high-profile mods currently in development, and will allow players to explore a post-apocalyptic version of the English capital. Players will be able to interact with everything from “stuffy parliamentary aristocrats to a resurrected Knights of the Round Table to a ruthless cult of revolutionaries.” It even stars Baldur’s Gate 3’s Astarion actor Neil Newbon.

Bethesda development chief Todd Howard has confirmed that Fallout 5 will arrive after The Elder Scrolls 6, which is still a long way off, but he’s still updating the MMO Fallout 76.
