The Elder Scrolls 6 Won’t Be Negatively Affected by Fallout 76, Says Analyst
Fallout 76 was a long time in the making, having initiated development prior to the launch of Fallout 4. It finally arrived this year and received mixed reviews to say the least. With a modest 52 score from metacriticand similar sentiments from other sources, it certainly isn’t the most well-received title from Bethesda. Aside from that, gamers have yet to hear progress on two other upcoming titles Bethesda has already revealed – The Elder Scrolls 6 and Starfield.
Despite the company’s 2018, one analyst believes The Elder Scrolls 6 won’t be affected by Fallout 76. Speaking to GamingBolt, industry analyst Michael Pachter said:
I don’t think there’s any risk to any future single player games. It just tells you that they weren’t ready to make a multiplayer-only game. They probably have to go back and figure out what they did wrong, and how to get it right. I have to say, it’s the first game in the Fallout series I haven’t played, and I don’t have any interest in playing it. I mean, it was so poorly reviewed that I’m just not gonna try it, and I’ve played all their games for hundreds of hours.
Pachter later went on to add that some might come to see Fallout 76 as a “blip” in their reputation. Then again, “you never know.” Some are keen on holding a grudge. Furthermore, Fallout 76 wasn’t the only reason Bethesda has been in the news as of late. They’ve been put on social media blast in recent times due to merchandise problems such the canvas versus nylon bag incident, and the $80 plastic bottle of Nuka Dark Rum. Despite the difference in category, some folks like to tally up places of improvement for large companies. Sounds like a mean and spiteful lover.
Can Bethesda recover from 2018? Certainly. Aside from Fallout 76, Bethesda has had a relatively good reputation with the gaming community thus far, but it might take some good PR and vigilance on quality control for future merchandise release. As for the upcoming video games, Starfield and The Elder Scrolls 6, only time will tell. With the long-awaited next entry to the ESO franchise, the studio will have to pay attention to the areas they’ve got right. However, both games are still far from launch, so time will tell if Fallout 76 will become a “blip” by then.
