Fallout 4 Next-Gen Patch Release Pushed to 2024

If you’ve been waiting for the “next-gen” patch for Fallout 4, you’ll have to wait even longer. Bethesda recently announced that the update has been pushed to 2024, with no specific release date provided. The patch is being developed for PS5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC, and will bring features such as a higher frame rate, 4K visuals, and new Creation Club content. Previous updates for Xbox One X improved visuals but came with compromises, so this time, developers are aiming for improvements with fewer compromises.

As for the next installment in the Fallout series, Fallout 5, it seems we’ll have to wait a while. Todd Howard, creative director at Bethesda, has stated that work on Fallout 5 will begin after completing The Elder Scrolls 6. However, developers have only recently started working on The Elder Scrolls 6 after the launch of Starfield. With Starfield taking seven years to make, it could be another ten to 14 years before Fallout 5 is released.

In the meantime, fans can look forward to the Fallout TV show, set to be released in April. The show features Walton Goggins as a Ghoul, with some speculating that he might be portraying John Hancock, a companion from Fallout 4.
