Bethesda Softworks has officially confirmed that Fallout 4 will not be releasing for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
Posting on NeoGAF, the developer’s global community lead Matt Grandstaff explained that the reason behind skipping the last-gen consoles is that the “stuff we’re doing will never work there.”
In other words Fallout 4 is just too much for the aging consoles to bear, even if the popular consensus is that the game looks like it was released five years ago.
Bethesda’s stance on its intended platforms comes shortly after several rumors went viral on the web, that stated the developer to have plans for releasing the last-gen ports sometime after the release of the current-gen editions.
That doesn’t seem to be the case anymore.
Fallout 4 will be making a major appearance at E3 2015 where it will be shown behind closed doors. Hopefully some of that footage gets leaked online for us to see.
Fallout 4 is currently scheduled for a release later this year for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Popular speculation puts the game for an October launch.
