Silver Style Expresses Interest In 'Fallout' 3 Franchise

by Rainier on Dec. 10, 2003 @ 12:26 p.m. PST | Filed under News

Noticed on RPGDOT that Silver Style's Carsten Strehse (currently working on The Fall, previously known for Soldiers Of anarchy) has put up some interesting comments regarding the demise and possible future of Black Isle and Fallout 3. "Well, we are definatly interested in hiring some of the former Balck Isle staff. I try to get in contact with them. I also disclose no big secret if I tell you that we have found a mayor partner for The Fall and that money wouldn't be the biggest problem when we would try to get the FO licence. My biggest concern is the reaction of the FO community. We're all huge fans of FO here and have deepest respect for the achievements of the dev team. However, we are no Black Isle, we are Silver Style. And I'm afraid that the community wouldn't be pleased with a FO3 that wasn't developed by the original team. Even if I'm very sure that we could deliver a real stunning game."
