Fallout 76 Made More Money Than It Costed To Make

Despite the failures, Fallout 76 succeeded.

Fallout 76 is the ninth and most recent instalment in the Fallout franchise and a prequel to its predecessors. It was developed by Bethesda Game Studios and released by Bethesda Softworks in October 2018. However, the action-adventure RPG did face some significant criticism from the community upon release.

As a result, the franchise did have to face some consequences. Still, some new information has revealed that despite all the criticism and consequences that the game had to confront, it managed to make more money than what was used to make the game.

Earlier today, Timur222 tweeted that they came across a source who was a former developer at Bethesda Game Studios Austin, which was responsible for the development of Fallout 76. According to the source, the company actually ended up making more money off of Fallout 76 than what was funded to make it. However, it did take the company a while to reach this milestone.

After the tweet started getting some attention, Timur222 replied to their tweet, revealing their source for this information. However, the reply was soon deleted to keep the source anonymous. Unfortunately, we couldn’t retrieve the reply before it was removed.

This information does come from an anonymous source, so do take it with a grain of salt. However, the Fallout franchise isn’t a small one and it makes sense for Bethesda Softworks to still make a considerable amount of money from the game regardless of it being a failure.

Fallout 76 did receive many negative reviews upon its release. For many players, the game was a massive disappointment, considering the reputation of the Fallout franchise. Yet, regardless of the pessimistic comments that the game had to face, it seems like it still did fine for itself.
