If you’ve owned any computer console over the course of the last 15 years, you’ll have no doubt heard of – or indeed owned a copy one of Bethesda’s Fallout games.

For the most part the games have been critically acclaimed – though both Fallout 4 and the latest instalment: Fallout 76 were notorious for bugs and glitches. The latter (a purely online game) received harsh criticism for it’s severe lack of depth – though the developers now seem to be turning this around. However, the game franchise retains a wide fanbase and the games are still as popular as ever!

Last week, Amazon Studios announced that Bethesda has now licensed the rights to the media/retail giant to develop a new TV series based on the Fallout franchise.

The new series will be helmed by Westworld producers Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy.

Nolan and Joys production company (Kilter Films) made the following announcement:

Fallout is one of the greatest game series of all time. Each chapter of this insanely imaginative story has cost us countless hours we could have spent with family and friends. So we’re incredibly excited to partner with Todd Howard and the rest of the brilliant lunatics at Bethesda to bring this massive, subversive, and darkly funny universe to life with Amazon Studios,

As yet there has been no release date but with COVID-19 still affecting many parts of the world and with production most likely in the very early stages, it will most likely be some time before we get any word on the series premier.
