DLC Sized Fallout London Mod Delayed Indefinitely Due to Fallout 4’s Upcoming Next Gen Update

Bethesda’s upcoming next-gen patch for Fallout 4 has seemingly thrown a wretch for some of the series’ most passionate fans as Team FOLON, the developers behind the significant expansion Fallout 4 mod, Fallout London, have announced they’re delaying the mod indefinitely due to the “surprise” announcement of the update, according to an update video on their YouTube channel.

Fallout 4’s next-generation update has been in the works for a while. It was initially announced in 2022, aiming for 2023, but missed that target with no real update until now at least, which is launching off the heels of the series’ live-action Amazon Prime adaptation on April 25th. The problem with that news concerning Fallout London is that Bethesda is dropping the update two days after the mod’s launch date on April 23rd.

Out of fear that the mod might break with the update, the team was forced to delay it and look into the new update after release to find out how much it breaks the mod. The expectation is that the update will probably break Fallout 4‘s script extender, which most of the game’s mods use to create their modded experience for players. Hopefully, for fans anticipating Fallout London, it won’t be too much of a wait as the four years of hard work get closer to the finish line.

“We’ve just been tweaking and testing non-stop in order to get things as stable as we can for you all in time for that release. With the new update dropping just 48 hours later, the past four years of our work stand to just simply break,” Team FOLON project lead Dean Carter said in a 10-minute update video.

It isn’t all bad news per se, as Carter is hopeful that the update might improve the game’s performance, which in turn may help with the mod’s development. The announcement of the update to the game was a complete blindside on the team behind the moderator, who said they “never had an in-depth conversation with them. Ever.”
