Fallout 76 Wastelanders Update Delayed to Q1 2020

Bethesda have announced the Wastelanders Update for Fallout 76 has been delayed to Q1 2020.

Revealed at E3 2019, the Wastelanders Update was to add NPCs, dialogue options, a 52-person battle royale mode called “Nuclear Winter”, new weapons, armor, enemies, activities, and more.

While originally slated for late 2019, Bethesda have pushed the date back to Q1 2020.

Announcing it via their official website, Bethesda had this to say:

“We’ve been hard at work on Fallout 76 this year, including our biggest free update yet, Wastelanders. We’re excited about how Wastelanders is coming together but it’s going to need more time to be the best, most polished update it can be, so we are delaying its release to Q1 next year. We’ve continued to re-evaluate and change our processes to make sure the work we’re doing hits our quality bar, and yours. We apologize for this delay but know it will be worth the extra time.

Wastelanders is turning out to be one of the largest expansions we’ve ever done, and it changes the entire world with human NPCs returning. We’ll be sharing more details over time, but here’s a first look at some of what’s to come in Wastelanders.”
