Fallout 76 will not start on Steam but it does not mean that any future Bethesda game will avoid releasing on the platform, the publisher has said.
"We did not announce that any future Bethesda game will not be on steam." That's not what we said. We said this game will be available exclusively on Bethesda.net, "says Bethesda's Pete. Hines to IGN yesterday.
Hines said the publisher has not decided on any of his future games, including Doom Eternal, will launch on Steam and the Fallout 76 decision was made due to "the kind of game it is "It's an online ongoing game."
Launch on Bethesda.net will make it easier for the publisher to communicate with players, he said, adding it to Steam and other platforms, Bethesda can not always access the players' contact information.
"We have found very good successes in having direct relationships with customers and not being able to see the same benefits when we work through someone else. Especially for Fallout 76, we will try this because we think it will give us the best opportunity to do the right of our customers. "
It's possible that Fallout 76 will steal the future," Hines said ̵
