a one-week delay to the release of the Wastelanders
update for Fallout 76
. The free expansion is now expected on April 14th,
as they explain that working remotely due to COVID-19 precautions has affected
their playtesting schedule:
Like others around the world, we’re dealing with the critical situation
that’s currently affecting so many of us. For the safety of everyone, we have
transitioned to remote work, and are limiting our in-person interactions.
This has obviously changed the way we work, but rest assured that critical
services for all our live games are fully operating.
However, this has affected our ability to do the final testing we need for
Wastelanders and we must move the release date a week, from April 7 to April 14.
We’ve done everything we can to minimize the delay and can’t wait for everyone
to play. A special thanks to all our Private Test Server players for all your
We know this is a stressful time, and we can’t thank you enough for all the
support you’ve given each other and us. We’re humbled to have such an incredible
community that has stuck with us through ups and downs. It means the world to
us, especially in times like this.
Stay safe, and thanks again,
Bethesda Game Studios
