Bethesda’s latest Fallout title, Fallout 76, is coming out this November and it’s distinctly different from previous titles in the franchise. This because the game’s going to be a multiplayer-focused game, not exactly MMO levels, but it will be an always-online game. Bethesda plans to keep releasing free DLC for the game to keep people playing the game. But how long do they plan to keep the game going? Forever it turns out.
That’s exactly what Bethesda’s marketing executive told Metro in an interview, “Forever.”
For “Fallout 76, our timeline is in perpetuity.”
The explanation according to Hines, is just looking at their previous titles, such as Fallout 4, and Skyrim, or even older titles like Morrowind, which people still mod and play to this day. “Those games have been out for four and seven years, and there are literally hundreds of thousands of people playing those games every single day, every single month.”
So the plan is that Fallout 76 will be around for a long time, but Hines doesn’t know for sure what future content for the game will look like. Ideally, it would be shaped by how the community reacts.
Fallout 76 releases in November for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4. The beta for Fallout 76 begins in October and will be available first on Xbox One.
