Former Fallout series producer and designer Tim Cain has left WildStar developer Carbine Studios to join Obsidian Entertainment, reports Rock Paper Shotgun.

In addition to helping create the Fallout franchise, Cain also co-founded the now-shuttered Troika Games, known for its PC role-playing titles like Vampire: The Masquerade: Bloodlines and Arcanum: Of Steamworks and Magick Obscura.

In 2005, Cain joined MMO developer Carbine Studios, and in 2008 he became the design director for the studio's recently-announced WildStar.

According to Cain's LinkedIn and Facebook profile, he will now serve as senior programmer at Obsidian.

Obsidian, founded in 2003, has worked on titles including Fallout: New Vegas, Alpha Protocol, and Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II. Currently, the studio's only announced project is a video game adaptation of Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time books, co-developed by Red Eagle Games.

Damn, son, Wildstar ain't even out yet! Oh, well... Maybe he's getting back to his roots.

Tim, can you please talk Obsidian into making a game in the style of Vampire: The Masquerade: Bloodlines?

With Deus Ex:Human Revolution being a success, a game like VTMB would do well.

I did love Troika's Vampire Masquerade: Bloodlines

CCP is already making a World of Darkness MMO set in the same world though.

Wildstar is interesting, I like the idea of the four alternative adventure paths, its about time more games had alternative advancement outside of combat. Not sure if they will pull it off but I'm definately keeping an eye on it.
