Bethesda Working to Return Classic Fallout Games to Steam

Bethesda has said that it is working to return the recently removed classic Fallout titles (Fallout, Fallout 2, and Fallout Tactics) to Steam as soon as possible.

All three titles were recently pulled from Steam and GOG.com to “remove existing publisher info, legal text, etc,” according to the publisher.

The original Fallout games were published by Interplay Entertainment before Bethesda acquired the rights to the IP in 2007. As part of this acquisition, Interplay was granted merchandising rights, which allowed it to continuing selling the original three games. Following a lawsuit in 2012 this agreement was terminated, which led to Interplay’s rights expiring on December 31, 2013.

When asked about the game’s returning to GOG.com, the publisher replied: “Our priority right now is returning the games to Steam at the earliest date possible.”
