Fallout 76 was recently revealed by Bethesda Softworks however the hype was immediately shut down once rumors about the game being an online multiplayer focused RPG began to gain traction. Fans who were hoping for a single player RPG experience like Fallout 4 were left disappointed after this rumor but just like it is the case with early reports around a game, this one has to be taken with a bit of skepticism until it is officially revealed by Bethesda.
Jason Schreir, who is an editor at Kotaku, and first shared this story about Fallout 76 being an online game, recently decided to clear the confusion surrounding its announcement on reddit.
“I’ve seen a lot of rage and confusion (and denial) on this subreddit so I just wanted to chime in to say a couple of things. One is that, after publishing my story, I heard from a few other sources (in addition to the three mentioned in the article) corroborating that Fallout 76 is an online game. If you’re really still in denial, I guess you can wait until June 10, but hey, don’t say I didn’t tell you, ” said Jason in his detailed post.
“The second thing is that I’m very optimistic about this game. The buzz I’m hearing (both first- and second-hand) is that it’s really cool, interesting, and just as story-focused as any other Bethesda Game Studios game. It might have multiplayer and base-building, but hey, it’s still a Fallout game.”
You can read his full post on reddit and as it is the case with rumors, don’t treat it as an official confirmation until June 10, when Bethesda Softworks will showcase the actual game in full detail.
