Fallout London's launch was eagerly awaited after developers announced it would be released on April 23. However, it has been delayed again due to the Fallout 4 next-gen update.

One of the releases expected right after the Prime Video live-action series premiere was the launch of Fallout London. This DLC-sized mod would introduce a new story and new factions in the United Kingdom capital, using Fallout 4 as a base.

The creators previously announced its release date for April 23 to ride the wave of hype following the Fallout live-action series’ release on Prime Video.

However, Bethesda announced last week that it will release the much-awaited Fallout 4 next-gen update on April 25, after announcing in December that it has been indefinitely delayed.

Because of this, the Fallout London team put out a video on YouTube explaining their decision to delay the mod’s release to an unknown date.

In the video, team leader Dean Carter, or Prilladog, explained that the mod would inevitably break many of the systems that allow Fallout London to work.

Carter assured fans that, for their part, the mod is already completed, so the core systems will only need to be optimized to make it compatible with the update.

However, the third-party systems employed, for instance, by the Perk system, will need to be updated by their respective creators, who may have different timelines than Team FOLON.

Because of these factors, the team has decided to delay the mod's release indefinitely to ensure there are minimal bugs for players to deal with.

With the release of the next-gen update for Fallout 4 and the postponement of Fallout London's release, the only release remaining is the launch of the independent fan film Fallout: Breaking by Zack Finfrock next week.
