If there is one-thing gamers don’t want to see, it would be Fallout 4 release as an MMO game. It is true this wouldn’t be the case for all fans of this franchise, but it is clear that the majority would hate to see Fallout 4 launch on a date in 2014 or 2015 and arrive as a massively multiplayer online game.
We understand why a number of gamers have been considering this possibility over the last few weeks, and following news of The Elder Scrolls Online it is certainly possible. The problem is Fallout 4 doesn’t fit the MMO genre, so this game should stay single player only in our opinion.
Bethesda is behind one MMO already in the form of ESO, so it would be a strange marketing tactic to launch another game in this genre. This is one reason why Fallout 4 should stay as a single player game, although another would be gamer demand.
Do you feel Fallout 4 doesn’t fit in the MMO genre? We don’t expect a release date anytime soon for Fallout 4, but news about the games development will arrive in the coming months and maybe even at the Spike Video Game Awards. This event is planned for the start of December, so not long now and we might have a few details to whet your appetite.
Reactions we have seen so far to the idea of a Fallout 4 MMO include, “They may release a Fallout 4 MMO after the single player launch, but I highly doubt it considering ESO”. Another added, “If Bethesda made Fallout 4 an MMO they will lose a lot of money, so it won’t happen as they are smarter than that”.
The bottom-line: in our opinion a Fallout 4 MMO won’t happen thanks to internal competition with ESO, although we would love to hear your thoughts in the comments about this very idea.
