Those who’ve played titles such as The Elder Scrolls and Fallout are aware that these titles tend to have issues ranging from game-breaking to simply being funny. It’s clear that Bethesda is aware of these problems and attempts to fix them but instead of waiting for all the videos of funny glitches the company has decided to come out and state that Fallout 76 will have bugs.

The statement reads:

“As a development studio, we’ve taken a lot of journeys,” the letter starts. “We’ve tried not to repeat ourselves, yet all of our games have a similar DNA. In 2015, we decided to try something very new and very scary for us – take one of our worlds and make it online only. Once the idea of ‘Fallout-Online-Survival-Game’ stuck, there was no turning back, but still some worry and questions. ‘Will people want this from Fallout? Will they want it from us? How the hell are we going to make this? And what, exactly is this?'”

The letter goes on:

“We all know with the scale of our games, and the systems we let you use, that unforeseen bugs and issues always come up. Given what we’re doing with [Fallout] 76, we know we’re opening everyone up to all new spectacular issues none of us have ever encountered. Some we’re aware of, such as areas where performance needs to improve with lots of players. Others, we surely don’t. We need your help finding them, and advice on what’s important to fix. We’ll address all of it, now and after launch.”

It’s humbling to see Bethesda openly admit to this but those who’ve played Bethesda titles have already expected this. Some even look forward to the glitches and bugs, trying to break the game in whatever way possible.

Fallout 76 launches on Xbox One, PS4, and PC November 14th.
