Obsidian is obviously happy to be involved in a new Fallout 4 with an MMO angle, or they might already be heavily involved with no current release date signaled, but what’s the gamer opinion on both a massively multiplayer online game and Obsidian developing the next title? If you saw the recent comments by Obsidian’s New Vegas director Josh Sawyer, then you could have a strong opinion on his ideas along with any possible Fallout 4 MMO.
While we enjoyed reading IGN’s article on certain settings for the next Fallout game, it’s hard to see the majority of fans taking to the MMORPG idea. This isn’t the first time we touched on this, and you might remember our article back in September last year that pointed out the fan dislike towards this very possibility.
There’s of course supporters getting behind an online Fallout game, although from the feedback we’ve received at Product Reviews, it seems the majority find this outcome hard to imagine. Regardless of Fallout 4 becoming an MMO version, or not, most fans welcome any new game from this franchise.
Fallout 4 MMO still seems to be unpopular – As one fan put it, “Fallout is about survival with a great formula. Add new stuff, update the graphics, bring tweaks, but please don’t create an online only version”. Another added, “I really don’t want to see the MMO idea become reality, especially with the wasteland setting where there shouldn’t be many people”.
@Zyleeth They planned on making it MMO? Goodbye Fallout…. I really hope they don't

I kinda hope the thought to make Fallout 4 an MMO doesn't follow through.

@FalloutMMO this has already been confirmed false by Bethesda like 4 days ago

The good news – Bethesda is doing nothing to confirm such an idea and in fact, it looks like they are telling fans the MMO idea is false. Either way, we’d love to hear from our readers about an online version of this game for Fallout 4.
