It does seem like the way to go for an online multiplayer game right now is to offer a Battle Royale mode just like Fortnite or PUBG but Bethesda has made it clear that they are not going to hop on that train anytime soon.
It was clear from the start that Bethesda will have none of it as all their announcement did not include or mentioned battle royale mode. When asked if they will have any to offer in the future, Bethesda Global Senior Vice President Pete Hines replied with a simple “No”.
He later added that while they are not against Battle Royale mode, they do not want to follow everybody down that road. They think that just because it is popular does not mean it fits their game and goals.
As much as we enjoy Battle Royale game, we think that it is nice that Bethesda wants to continue doing their thing and not focus on what the trend is right now.
