Pete Hines Wants Fallout 76 to Last 10 Years

Will Fallout 76 last 10 years?

Fallout 76 is Bethesda's first attempt at a Fallout multiplayer game. Taking a lot of risks for the single-player franchise that will be supported with content updates. Recently, Pete Hines the Vice President of Bethesda discussed the future Fallout 76 and how he wants the game to last as long as Blizzard's World of Warcraft.

In a recent interview with GameSpot, Pete Hines stated:

“How long is [Fallout 76] going to be up? Forever,”

Hines went on to use World of Warcraft as an example

“I don’t know how to give an answer other than that. It’s not like anybody makes a game and goes, ‘Well this is going to make it for 10 years if we’re lucky.’ Nobody thinks that way. How long has WoW been up now? Is that game planning to sunset in a year? I seriously doubt it.”

Hines did say that while the support for Fallout 76 is planned to be “never-ending”. However, Bethesda may stop operating if people do stop playing.

“We’re going to keep going as long as people keep playing it and it shows no sign of slowing down,”

“Once we get to private servers or whatever happens in the years following; I don’t know. Maybe there’s a point where it doesn’t matter. But … this is a massive franchise and a massive undertaking, and our commitment to it is it is never-ending, and that it continues on an ongoing basis.”

Fallout 76 launches on November 14th for PC, Xbox One, and PS4. Check out our beta impressions here.
