  • Fallout 76 aside, Bethesda isn’t completely ditching Steam

"We've done online games before, we've done some games-as-service", Hines said. However, this may not mean that all upcoming games by the publisher will go the same route. Hines clarified that when Bethesda launches games on Steam, the company can't always be sure of players' contact details, and so it is harder for the company to contact players.

VG247 recently caught up with Bethesda's Pete Hines about the project, and though no new information was revealed, he did note that it would be a solid single-player experience, just as the other games were. "[Doom Eternal] may or may not, but it hasn't been decided on anything else yet". "We haven't decided on anything else, this is specific to Fallout 76 given the kind of game it is - it's an online, ongoing game", he continued.

Hines also addressed the state of Doom Eternal as it relates to Steam, and whether or not Fallout 76 might make it to Steam in the future.

Hines went on to say that there could be potential for Fallout 76 to one day come to Steam, but he couldn't give a direct answer one way or the other.

Speaking during a press Q&A at QuakeCon, as reported by PCGamesN, Hines explained that making PC players download the title using the Bethesda.net client will make it easier for the studio to assess and tackle any problems that might appear post-launch.

"We have found very good successes in having those direct relationships with customers, and not been able to see those same benefits when we work through somebody else".

Notably, The Elder Scrolls Online and The Elder Scrolls: Legends both made their way to Steam after initially launching exclusively on Bethesda.net. "And so, specific for Fallout 76, we are going to try this because we think it will give us the best chance to do right by our customers".
