Fallout 76 follows Cyberpunk 2077’s success and boasts 17 million players across its network.
2023 is shaping up to be an extraordinary year of revival for cyberpunk 2077 and Fallout 76, both three-year postrelease titles that have seen sustained success, reaching 17 Million players since release.
Cyberpunk 2077 had an uneven debut back in 2020 but thanks to regular updates and the arrival of Phantom Liberty expansion pack has since gone on to become one of the most acclaimed titles available today – so much so that fans recently agreed it would have won Game of the Year had it been released today with this version!
Bethesda appears to be following in CD Projekt Red’s footsteps with its 2018 Fallout installment Fallout 76, as its launch was widely criticised due to game-breaking bugs, poor performance and lifeless surroundings to explore.
Since Fallout 76’s initial launch, Bethesda has worked diligently on improving it – this includes the 2020 Wastelanders update which introduced fully voiced NPCs with full dialogue into Fallout 76, serving as an integral element in driving its progression and reinvention.
Fallout 76 currently holds a “mostly positive” rating on Steam five years post launch and recently exceeded 17 million players! Bethesda art director Jon Rush shared this news via his blog post detailing Fallout 76 roadmap updates such as Atlantic City Boardwalk Paradise update.
“Over 17 Million players have experienced new Fallout tales and characters through Wastelanders”, wrote Chris Wilson in the report.
Bethesda hasn’t left Fallout 76 just yet though; early 2024 will mark the release of Atlantic City – America’s Playground DLC with new missions including taking down Jersey Devil himself! Additionally, new quests, areas, and quests will all come along.
Fallout 76 will soon receive another DLC expansion later in 2024 which adds Shenandoah, Virginia into its map.
