There was a lot of expectation from Fallout 4 right from its launch. The game was released side by side with COD: Advanced Warfare, and it had tough task to remain popular. However, Bethesda kept rolling out DLCs for the game, which ensure that Fallout kept gaining popularity month by month.
15 months later, Fallout 4 has now become the most successful game made by Bethesda. It has gone ahead of the infinite universe of Skyrim.
Bethesda marketing executive Pete Hines said, “Fallout 4 has gotta be the most successful game we’ve ever launched in our company’s history. More than Skyrim, in terms of what we did.”
