Bethesda intends to keep online support for Fallout 76 indefinitely, at least until someone is willing to play.

Pete Hines of Bethesda reiterated once again that the servers of Fallout 76 will remain online “forever” or at least “as long as people keep playing it.”

Previously the developers had stated that the idea is to keep the game open indefinitely, as a kind of platform destined to remain online for a future period without a defined deadline and the issue was recently reiterated by Pete Hines. When asked how long the servers of Fallout 76 would remain active, Hines replied “Forever”.

In that sense, Pete Hines stated the following in an interview with GameSpot: “How long is [Fallout 76] going to be up? Forever. 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.”

Fallout 76 will be available from November 14 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC. Recently, Bethesda via Twitter announced the last two sessions of the BETA, which will be available on all platforms. You can check them out below:
