Bethesda has confirmed that Fallout 5 is on their mind, but we shouldn’t expect to see it for long just yet.
Fallout 4 launched in 2015 and the most recent entry in the series was 2018’s disappointing and online-focused Fallout 76, so it makes sense that another single-player Fallout adventure is on the horizon.
At the moment, Bethesda is very focused on Starfield, Elder Scrolls 6, and that mysterious new Indiana Jones game. As a result, the only thing we know about Fallout 5 is that there is a one-page design document that acts as a starting blueprint. What we’re saying is that we wouldn’t expect to see him for a few years yet.
So while we don’t have any concrete information yet, we’ve compiled all of the rumours and leaks surrounding Fallout 5 below, as well as what we’d like to see in the next Wasteland chapter.
FALLOUT 5 RELEASE DATE: WHEN WE EXPECT IT TO LAND
While there is currently no confirmed release date for Fallout 5, there is a lot of speculation at the moment. We’ve seen some optimistic predictions setting a release date for 2022, but given that Bethesda’s focus is decidedly on Starfield and The Elder Scrolls 6 right now, we’d say that’s pretty much impossible.
As it stands, we expect the Fallout 5 release date to be many years from now, really widening the previous seven-year gap between Fallout 3 (2008) and Fallout 4 (2015). At the moment, 2024 or later feels more realistic.
It really depends on how far along the Bethesda teams are with each game, but given that, in a November 2021 interview with IGN, Todd Howard said the studio has a “Fallout 5 page,” a broad overview of what we want it to be; We think it will be a while before we hear anything else.
Obviously, the ongoing coronavirus pandemic will complicate things in development, which could lead to multiple delays, even after a game announcement.
FALLOUT 5 PLATFORMS: WILL IT BE AN EXCLUSIVE TO XBOX?
We’re likely to see Fallout’s next release for Xbox Series X / S and PC, but PS5 is another matter.
It’s logical to think that Microsoft and Bethesda would make this an exclusive title due to the latter’s purchase of the latter earlier this year, but Xbox has said that exclusivity deals on new Bethesda games will be decided on a case-by-case basis. case, so it’s hard to be sure. At the very least, we should expect Fallout 5 to be an Xbox Game Pass title.
