Certain games manage to outlive a normal game’s lifespan, whether it is because of a studio’s continuous support or the game itself managed to attract a modding community that helps keep it alive and fresh. Well, Bethesda’s Vice President of Global Marketing Pete Hines believes Fallout 76 is one of those games.
Hines was recently featured in an interview where he expressed the studio’s interest in making Fallout 76 a long-term game. However, he admitted Bethesda isn’t exactly sure on what post-launch content will be when the game hits those late years and how the game itself will look like when that time comes.
I’m not being ironic. Like, forever. Because other people have said, ‘Is your timeline two years or five years?’ And I said, ‘Well, they’re still playing Morrowind and you go online and look at how many people are playing Fallout 4 and Skyrim. 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 Fallout 76, our timeline is in perpetuity. Now what that content is gonna be, and what that’s gonna look like, I’m not sure.
Fallout 76 releases on November 14, 2018, for the PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. In other news, Bethesda recently revealed how many players will each server hold.
