My time at BGS has come to an end. It has been an amazing ride, from producing the Designers on #Oblivion, #Fallout3, and #Skyrim, to Lead Producer of #Fallout4, and finally Project Lead of #Fallout76. I will miss my co-workers and want to thank the amazing fans. Stay tuned. pic.twitter.com/EkXbOZH7Gs
