Brian Fargo was the founder of Interplay and was the head of the company when Fallout, Fallout 2 and Fallout Tactics were developed and published. While he did not work directly on any of the Fallout games but was one of two of the producers for the first Fallout game, Fargo did also work on Fallout's predecessor - Wasteland as a Director; and the intros of all three of the aforementioned Fallout games include the words "Brian Fargo presents".
In 1984 Fargo founded Interplay Entertainment, where he worked on most of Interplay's early games (e.g. Bard's Tale and Wasteland). He was the company's CEO until 2002, when majority control of Interplay was acquired by Titus Interactive, and he left the company and was replaced as CEO by Hervé Caen.
In 2003 Fargo founded a new company, InXile Entertainment. In October 2004, InXile released The Bard's Tale for PlayStation 2 and Xbox. A version for Microsoft Windows was released in early 2005.
In 2003, Fargo finally acquired the rights to Wasteland. On February 29, 2012, Wasteland 2 was announced on No Mutants Allowed to be developed using fan-funds donated through Kickstarter.
