A couple of days ago, Amazon Germany leaked the existence of Fallout Legacy Collection, which bundles almost all of the Fallout games together for PC. Now Bethesda has officially confirmed that Fallout Legacy Collection is indeed real, but the collection's release comes with a major caveat.
It's been confirmed by Bethesda that the Fallout Legacy Collection is exclusive to Germany and the UK. The collection will launch on October 25 in those regions, and it will feature Fallout, Fallout 2, Fallout Tactics, Fallout 3: Game of the Year Edition, Fallout: New Vegas Ultimate Edition, and Fallout 4: Game of the Year Edition. Fallout fans in other territories will have to import the Fallout Legacy Collection if they want to play it, as Bethesda currently has no plans to release it elsewhere.
This is disappointing news for Fallout fans in other regions, as well as those on consoles. There had been some hope that the Fallout Legacy Collection would bring the classic Fallout games to somewhere other than PC, since they're already readily available on the platform as individual purchases, but there doesn't appear to be any plans to do that either.

While Fallout fans outside of Germany and the UK will have to miss out on Fallout Legacy Collection, those who do live in a region where they can buy it are getting significant bang for their buck. This collection includes almost every Fallout game and all their DLC, providing players easily hundreds of hours, if not thousands of hours of content for roughly $40.
The two Fallout games that aren't included in the collection are Fallout Shelter and Fallout 76. Fallout Shelter is a free-to-play game, so it makes sense why that's not in the collection, though some fans are confused as to why Fallout 76 isn't included. It's possible Bethesda decided to leave it out because of the generally poor reception to the game, though a more likely possibility is that Bethesda kept Fallout 76 out of Fallout Legacy Collection because it's a more recent release, having just launched last fall.
