Bethesda delays Fallout 4's "next-gen" update to 2024

Bethesda has pushed back the free PS5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC upgrade for Fallout 4 to next year as it requires "a bit more time" to put together.

The details:

  • Bethesda's update, originally announced in October 2022, is expected to bring a significant performance boost, 4K resolution, and bug fixes for its 2015 RPG to the current generation of consoles. The game is currently only playable on consoles via backward compatibility, and only the Series X supports removing the 30 FPS cap.

  • The update was supposed to be released this year, but with only a few weeks left, the studio has now confirmed that it will arrive next year. “Thank you for your patience with us as we work on the Fallout 4 next-gen update,” the social media post said. “We know you’re excited, and so are we! But we need a bit more time and look forward to an exciting return to the Commonwealth in 2024.”

  • In August, when asked about the status of the update, former Bethesda head of publishing Pete Hines responded, “Dunno if you heard, but we are shipping a new game in 3 weeks. Bit of a priority. When we have an update, we will share it.” Now that Starfield has finally arrived, and with the Fallout TV show on the way, it’s likely that a lot of focus has been placed on the update at the studio.
