Following the rumors about Fallout 76 switching to become a free-to-play game, Bethesda has responded and confirmed that there is no truth to this rumor.
Fallout 76 was released last year and since it went live, the game has been constantly receiving negative feedback from the gaming community. In fact, one of the fans who purchased the game at GameStop wants a refund. But due to the GameStop’s sales policy, his request was denied which makes him angry and raged at the store.
The developer continued to release updates for the game to satisfy its fan base but it seems like it’s not enough. Now, with some premium games turned into a free-to-play game, a rumor about Fallout 76 turning into a free-to-play game has surfaced online.
The rumor started from a YouTube video that suggests to EB Games has started pulling out the physical copy of the game from their stores due to the poor sales. Which later on leads to speculations about Fallout 76 would go free-to-play which caught the attention of Bethesda.
In a Twitter post where Bethesda replied, the company confirmed that the game is not going free.
There is no truth to this rumor.
