Fallout 76 Crunch Blamed For Starfield And Redfall Delays
The gaming industry is recovering after COVID-19, it seems like we’re no longer able to blame the pandemic’s global impact as the reason your favorite game isn’t available. In the latest news, developers are blame themselves and their own internal releases as the reason that your next purchase will not be available on time.
Although it started with games like Cyberpunk 2077 getting caught in an endless series of delays , reworks and even a halt it’s now a common occurrence since the majority of AAA games have lost their release dates. 2022 was a bit better off for this unfortunate pattern – that is, if you aren’t Bethesda.
There’s no doubt the fact that, the time Fallout 1976 came out in 2018it was widely criticized as a radiation-damaged and unhealthy sister of the original series. Given that the fact that Fallout 4 was a smash in 2015 It was a sad disappointment to see it was not up to par as a fully multiplayer experience that shook off its fallout series’ inclination towards providing solid NPCs.
However, Bethesda refused to give up on the title that was slipping by and even backed off to include NPCs in the 2020’s WastelandersDLC. There’s an uncertain five-year timeline to release Fallout 76 however, according to a harsh report by Kotaku The problematic title is a complete abject failure that should never have been. In a conversation with 10 of the former Bethesda as well as ZeniMax Media employees, Fallout 76 was said to be comprised of a number of ex- designers from Fallout 4. developers who didn’t want to be involved in an online-only game.
Kotaku reports, “They drafted developers from all over the ZeniMax umbrella, to the point that other projects were negatively affected. Arkane Studios’ Redfall and Bethesda’s Starfield both lost team members to the black hole of Fallout 76.”
