Gamasutra was able to have a short sit-down Q&A with the guys at Bethesda about a variety of things, including Fallout 3. Nothing really new, but here are the highlights.
[When] asked about Bethesda's highly anticipated resurrection of the classic Fallout
post-apocalyptic role-playing franchise, Hines was obviously coy: “We
are a fairly good ways into the process. The team has ramped up, and it
will be a little while longer. As is the case with all of our games,
especially those of this scope, we don't really want to talk about them
until they are in a state where we can show you, rather than having you
simply picturing it in your minds eye.”
He added, simply: “
Fallout is not a quick two year process, and we are already several years into the project.”
Two and a half years later, we still don't officially "know" the facts, but we've got a pretty good idea.
