GameSpace Opinion: Fallout 76 Must Fail
In his latest provocative editorial over at GameSpace.com, Poorna Shankar has written a piece entitled "Fallout 76 Must Fail". Poorna believes that FO76 must fail both commercially and critically since most companies only pay attention to the bottom line, namely financial gain. "Bad ideas, and bad executions of bad ideas, must fail".
But Fallout 76 is not an isolated incident. It is simply one of many. Like I detailed above, Bethesda have a traceable history of launching technical mess after technical mess, with the same issues being persistent across titles. Therefore, this blame and incompetence extends beyond the executives. As this discussion will show, this incompetence is company-wide affecting Marketing, PR, Community Management, and beyond. This is something deeper, more systemic, and ultimately rotten.
