|Fallout Wiki: Fallout 2 portal|
Fallout 2 is a post-apocalyptic computer role-playing game that was developed and published by Black Isle Studios in 1998 as a sequel to Interplay's Fallout. The game takes place in the year 2241 on the West Coast of what used to be the United States of America, mostly in California and Nevada.
Black Isle Studios was a division of the computer and video game developer and publisher Interplay Entertainment, created specifically for the development of computer role-playing games. It was based in Orange County, California, USA. Black Isle Studios is most famous for working on the Fallout and Baldur's Gate series of computer role-playing games, though it only published the Baldur's Gate series. The division was formed during 1996, adopting the name "Black Isle Studios" during 1998. The idea for the division's name came from the Black Isle in Scotland - founder Feargus Urquhart's native country. In 1998, several key members responsible for the division's first title, Fallout, left Interplay to form Troika Games. On December 8, 2003, in the midst of serious financial difficulties, Interplay laid off the entire Black Isle Studios staff.

|The Fallout world is not quite our own. It is an alternate reality which diverged from ours at some point after the second World War.
The base concept for the setting is the World of Tomorrow as imagined in the Golden Age of Science Fiction. This means that before the Great War, the Fallout world was more or less what the people of the 1940s and 1950s thought things would be like in 2077.
