Interplay, Troika and Carbine veteran Tim Cain has a new home as Obsidian’s senior programmer.

Rock Paper Shotgun reports Cain was a key creative behind 1997’s highly influential RPG, Fallout, before jumping ship with key team members to form Troika Games, which produced Arcanum: Of Steamworks and Magick Obscura and Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines.

Cain was part of Carbine’s Wildstar team since 2005, but eagle-eyed Obsidian fans noted his social networks had been updated to reflect the new position. His new role reunites Cain with fellow original Fallout team member Chris Jones.

Obsidian is currently developing an adaptation of The Wheel of Time, Robert Jordan’s fantasy epic. Its most recent title was Dungeons Siege III, having completed Fallout: New Vegas.
