News: Fallout 76 Wastelanders DLC Delayed By a Week

Recommended Posts

Fallout 76's upcoming Wastelanders DLC has been delayed by a week. Bethesda announced the Wastelanders DLC during their 2019 E3 conference, and called it the "biggest update yet" that will bring human NPCs with full dialogue trees, a new main quest, choice and consequence, and much more to Fallout 76. The DLC initially received a release window of Fall 2019, but it slipped beyond that with a new release date of April 7. Now, it has been delayed just a week to April 14 due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. [ignvideo url="https://www.ign.com/videos/2020/02/25/how-coronavirus-is-impacting-the-games-industry"] "Like others around the world, we're dealing with the critical situation (COVID-19) that's currently affecting so many of us and our communities," a statement from Bethesda posted on Twitter reads. "For the safety of everyone, we have transitioned to remote work, and are limiting our in-person interactions." Bethesda says this shift to remote work and limited in-person interactions affected the company's ability to do final testing on the Wastelanders update, which is why the release had been pushed back by a week. You can check out the full statement below.

Bethesda is not the first company that has had its games affected by the ongoing COVID-19 virus. Capcom's United Kingdom team announced today, March 26, that physical copies of Resident Evil 3 might ship late in Europe. Square Enix is dealing with a similar situation as the company warned a few weeks ago that physical copies of Final Fantasy 7 Remake might not arrive on time. For something on the lighter side, art is imitating life in Fallout 76 as players are spending thousands of caps on single rolls of toilet paper in the game. Here are some ways you can help others and stay safe during the COVID-19 pandemic.
