Could Tyranny be in need of a legendary world designer?

Leonard Boyarsky, art director for the original Fallout, project lead on Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines and lead world designer for Diablo 3, has left Blizzard to join Obsidian (opens in new tab). Boyarsky is the man responsible for Fallout's unmistakable brand of retrofuturism (opens in new tab), and the move reunites him with Fallout's lead programmer Tim Cain.

Cain hinted at the move in a Facebook post (opens in new tab) (confirmed by Tweet (opens in new tab)) which, typically, doesn't mention what Boyarsky is up to. At an informed guess, I'd say he'll weigh-in on Obsidian's newly announced RPG, Tyranny (opens in new tab), in which the bad guys have won—and you're one of them.
