Bethesda has some interesting plans for Fallout 76. In a recent interview with Bethesda’s vice president of marketing, Pete Hines, a few things came to light; among which was the fact that Bethesda, wants Fallout 76 to last forever.
The devs have plans and are all but ready to implement those plans to make this game not only last as long as they can but their main target is to make it immortal, in a way.
It may come to you as quite an ambitious aim but that is the case apparently. Upon being asked the question about how long does Pete Hines think Fallout 76 would last, he answered promptly, saying “forever”.
Forever. I’m not being ironic. Like, forever.
Hines did not stop there apparently he had a whole thing planned out. Ss expected Hines, did not say much on those plans but he definitely had some claims, to back up his forever agenda.
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. Hines said.
Then he went on to talk about these games, in reference to how long have they lasted. The fact that they still have a huge audience is an assurance that if the game is built, in such a way from ground up that it ensures the capacity to last forever.
There could then be nothing in the path for that particular game, to become immortal. Hines referring to Fallout 4 and Skyrim said,
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 putting his context into consideration, it does seem to reason that if a similar service model is adopted it just might work.
Having said that, to be honest, we would recommend you to take this very lightly, since this aim of the company just might be a little too ambitious.
Last we heard of the studio, it depicted a lot of confusion with its Fallout 76 title as well. If you catch the drift, you would actually observe that Bethesda appears to sometimes be afraid of this title being a multiplayer experience.
We all know that the previous Fallout titles have been successful but this is a whole new take for the studio even. Still, let us hope that everything works out.
