Two Theories on the Fallout 4 Next-Gen Update Launch

Bethesda first announced in October 2022 that a next-gen update for Fallout 4 will bring updated graphics and bug fixes to the version for the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series consoles. It was initially meant to be released last year.

However, Bethesda abruptly announced in December that it is indefinitely postponing the update's release to sometime in 2024. The studio said they need “a bit more time” to polish the update before releasing it, but fans online have different ideas.

Game Rant said the Fallout 4 next-gen update may drop in April. Fans prefer this scenario, which is most likely because it was initially scheduled for late 2023.

Waiting until late this year, the article said, may be counterproductive. Given considerable hype regarding the live-action series, which begins airing on April 12, Bethesda may want to take advantage by releasing the update before or after the premiere.

On the other hand, if the studio doesn’t release the update this April, the next most likely release date would be in October or November this year. This is in keeping with the launch windows of past Fallout games - all released in October, except for Fallout 4.

In the meantime, why don’t you check out the exclusive still images of the upcoming live-action series released by Vanity Fair? Prime Video also released the first trailer for the series, which gives us a look into the three main characters played by Ella Purnell, Walter Goggins, and Aaron Clifton Moten.
