Todd Howard Confirms: Fallout Staying in America

If you're a fan of the Fallout franchise, you may have wondered if the series would ever venture outside of the United States. In a recent episode of Kinda Funny Games, Betheda's Todd Howard addressed this question, and his answer was quite clear - Fallout is an All-American series.


Since its inception in 1997, Fallout has been deeply rooted in post-apocalyptic America. While the games have taken players across different states, from Washington DC to California, they have never strayed from the territory. Todd Howard emphasized this point, stating that for now, the plans are to keep Fallout predominantly within the US.

One of the key aspects of the Fallout lore is the American naivete that is portrayed throughout the series. Moving the game outside of the US would risk losing this critical element that adds to the unique charm of Fallout. The mystery surrounding what has happened in the rest of the world is part of the allure of the franchise, keeping players intrigued and engaged.

While there may be curiosity about exploring other regions in the Fallout universe, Howard believes that leaving those areas shrouded in mystery is essential to maintaining the overall appeal of the series. By not revealing what is happening in Europe or other parts of the world, Fallout retains its enigmatic allure.

Fallout's decision to remain within the United States is not just a matter of practicality but a deliberate choice to preserve the essence of the series. The deep connection to American culture, history, and values is what sets Fallout apart, and straying from this core identity could potentially dilute its impact.
