Bethesda reassures the three people who bought it that Fallout 76 isn’t going free-to-play

Rumours on the internet are rumours on the internet, the studio has confirmed, and rumours on the internet that Fallout 76 is going free-to-play less than four months since it launched are rumours on the internet and not for reals facts. For now, anyway.

Launched in November, the game hasn’t exactly been the megaton win Bethesda expected, with sales bombing over the holiday season and players reporting lots of mutant bugs. This week, Australian retailer EB Games started pulling copies of Fallout 76 from sale, according to SegmentNext, citing a “distributor recall”, whatever that means. The company has since explained, kind of, that it’s because… because.

So. Okay.
