Digital distribution channel GOG.com
has pulled Fallout, Fallout 2
and Fallout Tactics
from its virtual shelves.
The decision is in regards to new IP owner Bethesda
, which officially took over full franchise rights from Interplay
as of January 1, 2014. The settlement between the two companies was reached early last year after years of litigation
over a Fallout MMO in development at Interplay.
If you've purchased any of these Fallout games through GOG prior to Tuesday, December 31, 2013 at 3:59PM GMT, you can still re-download through the "My Games" section, but new customers are hereby barred from purchasing and downloading these games through GOG from here on out.
