Fallout 76’s release date has potentially been leaked by Amazon. A listing for the game, which has now been changed to a generic release window, suggested that the next offering in Bethesda’s post-apocalyptic RPG series could release very soon.
To be precise, the Amazon listing originally stated that Fallout 76 would be available on July 31, 2018 (you’ll be able to view a screenshot at the bottom of this article). That means it could release in just over seven weeks. However, don’t get too excited, as it has since been edited to include a tentative release date of December 31, 2019.
It’s no surprise that the Fallout series makes it onto our list of the best RPGs.
Obviously, we’re yet to get an official Fallout 76 release date, but this rumour isn’t entirely without worth. While many companies use their E3 showings to reveal games planned for release in a few years, Bethesda wasted no time getting Fallout 4 out the door after they announced it at E3 2015 – it was released a few months after Bethesda’s showcase, in November. And so it’s very possible that the publisher will repeat that move this year.
A screenshot, helpfully captured by MassivelyOP, shows that both the PC and Xbox One versions of the game will be available “by Tuesday, 31 July.” It also shows that the PC version of the game is retailing for £49.99, while the console version is on sale for £59.99.
Obviously, we’ll have to wait until E3 to learn more about Fallout 76, but personally I think there’s a grain of truth in this leak. Until Bethesda’s conference, why not join us in checking out some Fallout 76 rumours.
Currently, it looks as though we’re in for a world-building RPG set far earlier than the rest of the games in the series, but we’ve got several bases covered, from the eventual release of Project Rebirth all the way to a Fallout Battle Royale.
