Could Fallout 4 Outperform Skyrim? Bethesda Says Yes
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim was a huge critical and financial success.
However, developer Bethesda believes such a performance is hardly insurmountable and in fact, they believe the upcoming Fallout 4 could top Skyrim.
In a recent MCV interview with Bethesda vice president of PR and Marketing Pete Hines, the interviewee said quite simply:
"I think [Fallout 4] can top Skyrim. It could be our biggest release ever. But we will see."
Hines added that it's part of his job to "build the megaphone that we hold up to the game" but it's really up to the game to see "just how loud it goes." He said that Skyrim was a "massively big deal" so of course, Fallout 4 will have to do extremely well to outperform the latest single-player Elder Scrolls entry (the Elder Scrolls Online has released since).
If you're wondering, Skyrim sold about 3.5 million copies during its first 48 hours and as of January 2014, it had hit a whopping 20 million. Do you think Fallout 4 can beat that?
