Is Bethesda Making a Fallout MMO?

5 posts in this topic

As some of you may know, Bethesda has purchased the right from Interplay to make a MMO set in the Fallout universe. And seeing how Zenimax Online Studios has already made an Elder Scrolls MMO, I can see them developing a Fallout MMO in the not-so-distant future. Maybe at this time next year, there will be a new MMO for everyone to play. So go ahead and give me your thoughts on this matter. Do you guys want a new MMO or would you rather see them develop something else?

On the one hand, I think ESO has utterly failed at trying to compete at the same level of WoW or GW2. On the other hand, they might think that Fallout is niche enough that it could make money as an MMO without interrupting WoW's market share. 

The fact is that there is no "market share" for MMOs. Most players are loyal to the games they play or the companies that make them. Fallout Online will have to make its money on its own merits, not on whatever an Excel spreadsheet says.

That said, the relatively low effort of ESO seems to suggest that FOO will be a hot mess on release. I also kind of wonder how the game will play. Will it be action-heavy like Destiny, or will it try going back to its point-and-click roots? Who knows.

If they do then they clearly aren't looking very hard!  There are allot of post apocalyptic and/or survival MMO's like this out there, perhaps it's not as flooded as Fantasy but it's long way from "niche".

 

I personally don't see a Fallout MMO coming any time soon and I don't think I would welcome it either, Elder Scrolls and Fallout should stick to what they do best.

Fallout has  been great the way it has been. Making it a mmo is a recipe for disaster. The push for everything to be online play is ruining franchises "Gran Turismo Sport." Also look at final fantasy online and the elder scrolls, they ended up feeling like wow with a skin. They lost their own character. It's been an underwhelming year for gaming. Star wars battlefront 2, destiny 2, gran turismo sport, cod, all disappointments. The only games that I played that didn't disappoint were doom, fallout, witcher 3, diablo 3. Final fantasy 15 was on the fence.

Im more or less with you on the rest of the post, although i did enfot FFXIV when i was playing, but can I just point out that with the possible exception of FFXV's DLC expantions, litterally none of those games came out this year.
