Fallout


 

Sony recently revealed that PlayStation 4 and Xbox One players will finally be able to play together in certain games, but it seems that Fallout 76 won’t be one of them.

Bethesda’s VP of marketing Pete Hines chimed in to applaud Sony’s decision to allow cross-play, but quickly had to clarify that just because he supports cross-play and would like to see it in many of Bethesda’s future games, it’s not “on [the] radar” for Fallout 76.

Part of this may be because Fallout 76 is only two months away from release. Sony has only just announced that cross-play will be possible, and it would likely be physically impossible for Fallout 76 to incorporate such features at launch.

Interestingly, though, Hines has taken a stronger stance on getting cross-play in The Elder Scrolls: Legends, a card game based on the Elder Scrolls series. If cross-play can be implemented for that, then perhaps it will become more of a priority for Bethesda in general going forward, and might one day make its way into other big games.

Fallout 76 is set to release on November 14th, with a beta taking place in October. The game will launch for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.

The PS4 and Xbox One finally have cross-play, but it won’t be in Fallout 76

The next big Fallout game won't support cross-play between different consoles, despite previous comments from Bethesda.
