Bethesda's Fallout 4 must arrive this side of Christmas as promised, say UK retailers.
Triple-A titles have continued to slip out of 2015, including the likes of Uncharted 4, Dead Island 2, Zelda, Quantum Break, The Division and more, weakening what had once promised to be a blockbuster end to the year.
So the announcement that Fallout 4 will arrive on November 10th is welcome news to physical retailers.
It's really important that Fallout 4 hits this year and doesn't become yet another marquee title that slips into 2016,” said the sales boss of Simply Games Steve Moore. It's very encouraging that Bethesda has announced a date so early on for Fallout 4. To bring it out within days of this year's Call of Duty shows massive faith in the title. Early indications are that Fallout 4 will be one of the biggest releases of the year if they nail the date.”
The game's pre-orders are already sky high, according to Green Man Gaming and GAME
When Bethesda Game Studio launches a new game, it is really is a defining moment for the world of video games and we expect sales of Fallout 4 to surpass those of Skyrim,” said GAME's third party content manager Mandip Bhachoo.
