Despite Bethesda promising Fallout 4 players a next-gen update back in October 2022, it has been over a year and there is still no sign of the revamped version of the popular RPG. Luckily, the developers have recently shared some insight into where the update is.
Last October saw Bethesda deliver news that the 2015 action-adventure game Fallout 4 would be receiving a new and improved update sometime in 2023. However, with the end of 2023 in sight, it seems as though the company got a bit sidetracked. With the studio working on its latest project, the space RPG Starfield, this delay is perhaps to be expected but fans are still hoping for an explanation.

Now one former Bethesda executive has shared details on where the missing Fallout 4 update is. Pete Hines who worked on most Bethesda releases over the past twenty years recently announced his retirement in October of this year. However, despite his departure from the studio, he was still able to offer clarity on Fallout 4.
“I did try getting an update before I left,” Hines claimed. “Nothing concrete enough I could share.” Although this does not tell us much, it does tell us what we feared and we are unlikely to see the Fallout 4 next-gen patch anytime soon.
The next-gen update would have seen many performance improvements added to Fallout 4 including 4K resolution, higher frame rates and visual improvements. However, with Bethesda staying tight-lipped about its release, we may need to keep our fingers crossed that it arrives at all.
