When Is Fallout 5 Coming Out?

Fallout 5 has already been a long time coming. It can be argued that Fallout 4 was the last major release in the franchise (if we don’t count Fallout 76), and that was released way back in 2015. It has been almost a decade since we had a new, ‘numbered’ Fallout game that wasn’t classed as a spin-off or an experiment. With that in mind, there’s an important question that everyone is asking: ‘When is Fallout 5 coming out?’

Is Fallout 5 Real?

Sadly, all we know about Fallout 5 is that a ‘one-pager’ exists for the game. That’s what Todd Howard said in May 2022, which means that there’s an idea for the game – but that’s where it ends. For the most part, Bethesda Game Studios was too busy working on Starfield (and probably still is) to spend too much time thinking about the Fallout 5 release date.

Before Fallout 5 is released (or even announced), Bethesda Game Studios has to develop and release The Elder Scrolls 6, and that’s a huge and super-ambitious project.

It’s widely expected that Fallout 5 won’t be released until at least 2030. That’s assuming that Starfield has plenty of fuel left in the tank and the development of The Elder Scrolls 6 doesn’t take too long. It’s a shame, but this is the life gamers live these days – massive, monumental titles take so long to build and perfect that waiting for them can often feel like torture.

So, when is Fallout 5 coming out?

We don’t know for sure, but we’d estimate Fallout 5 won’t be released until at least 2030.

Will Fallout 5 Be Multiplayer?

When it does launch, will Fallout 5 be multiplayer? That’s something that we can’t confirm, either.

In 2018, Bethesda Game Studios released Fallout 76, the series’ first multiplayer title, to an underwhelming and generally disappointing reception. It was a failed title from the get-go, and it has taken years for the developer to regain some sorely lost ground with it.

It doesn’t seem likely that Bethesda Game Studios would be too eager to replicate that failure with Fallout 5, but perhaps the developer has learned from its mistakes and would deliver the next multiplayer Fallout product a little better. For instance, fans have long desired a cooperative Fallout title rather than a massively multiplayer one, so that’s something that Bethesda Game Studios could look into.

We’d all love to know when Fallout 5 is coming out, but it seems like that all-exciting date may not arrive for several more years.

  1. Next gen is my guess but the bigger question is if Fallout New Vegas 2 is happening?
