In news which may shock and amaze Skyrim fans all over the world, Fallout 4 is more successful than Skyrim says Bethesda the publisher of both titles.
Pete Hines, Marketing Executive from Bethesda recently said in a podcast from Kinda Funny:
Fallout 4 has gotta be the most successful game we’ve ever launched in our company’s history. More than Skyrim, in terms of what we did.
Even though he has stated the game was more successful we are unsure what exactly his key indicators are.
Skyrim which was first released in 2011 has sold more than 20 million copies from 2014, to it getting to a staggering 22.7 million as of 2017. Fallout 4 however since it has come out in November 2016 has sold over 12 million copies since it has been released.
It is also unclear if Fallout has made more money than Skyrim as Bethesda has yet to release any hard sales figures. It is also unsure if they are adding the Skyrim remaster which was released at the end of last year.
Just as important, the interview also saw Hines open up a little on what we should be expecting next from the studio.
Whether it’s Fallout or Elder Scrolls or whatever they’re gonna do next, I think their mantra is always we really gotta step up our game
To finish off the Fallout 4 news, Bethesda has recently also released a massive new texture pack on Steam this week for more HD glory.
