There is no doubt regarding Bethesda’s talent and skill of game development. They are among the best in the business right now and we expect nothing short of GOTY quality titles from them.
However, game development and its scale can cause games from even the most talented team to suffer from post-release issues.
Similar was the case with Skyrim, it was no doubt a great RPG but it had plenty of issues that were later fixed with patches and updates.
Now, Bethesda is working on the awaited Fallout 4 and due to its massive scale and features, it wouldn’t be surprising if it has issues. But Bethesda says they have learned from Skyrim and will do better with Fallout 4.
In a recent interview, Bethesda’s heart and soul Todd Howard said:
I think we’ve gotten way better there. For us, (the player’s) saved game is the number one thing. If the game crashes that’s bad, but it is nowhere near as bad as someone’s saved game being hosed. That’s our scenario that we will do anything and everything to avoid. We made a lot of progress given how Skyrim went, but we did it during Skyrim. This just builds on that.
This is surely a good news for those who lost their hours of game saves in Skyrim. You won’t have to deal with this same problem with Fallout 4.
Fallout 4 is coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on November 10.
