Fallout 4 has surpassed The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim to become Bethesda’s “most successful game ever”.
Speaking on the Kinda Funny Gamecast, 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.”
It’s not immediately clear what Hines means by “most successful.”
Skyrim has sold over 20 million copies and remains one of the most played games on PC even to this day. Fallout 4, which came out in November 2015, shipped 12 million copies on launch day.
Fallout 4 is available on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Skyrim can be bought on PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and PC, with a Nintendo Switch version coming later this year.
