The Fallout 76 project has been in the news lately since reports emerged that its project lead, Jeff Gardiner, had left the game studio. He was the game director on Fallout 76, but it appears his role was largely focused on the game’s marketing and community efforts. It’s not clear what plans he has next, but it’s no surprise many people are curious about what’s next for Gardiner, following the game he helped lead.
Fallout 76 is the latest in the long-running post-apocalyptic franchise, and while still in development, Bethesda has managed to get a lot of information out about the title.
Fallout 76 had a rough start, but it has already improved its image and received at least tacit acceptance from gamers. As a result, it’s somewhat bittersweet to learn that Jeff Gardiner, the game’s project lead, has departed Bethesda (and therefore his position on the project) to work on undisclosed projects elsewhere.
Gardiner announced his resignation through Twitter yesterday, thanking both coworkers and fans for the opportunity to work on a range of games over the last almost 16 years. Fans of Fallout 76 are likely to be surprised, but there’s no reason to believe they should be concerned about the game’s eventual destiny. Even said, there will be a change in leadership in the near future, which is usually a little bit disruptive.
My time at BGS is coming to a close. From producing the designers on #Oblivion, #Fallout3, and #Skyrim to Lead Producer on #Fallout4, and ultimately Project Lead on #Fallout76, it’s been an incredible journey. I’ll miss my coworkers and want to express my gratitude to the incredible fans. Keep an eye out for updates. pic.twitter.com/EkXbOZH7Gs
