The next-gen update for Fallout 4 has been pushed to an unspecified date in 2024. Bethesda made this official announcement just earlier today through Twitter. Of course, with there just being about 18 days left in 2023, the official announcement should not come as any surprised to anybody.

The next-gen update for Fallout 4 was announced back in 2022. At that time, a release date was set for some point in 2023. As part of their delay announcement, Bethesda extended their thanks to fans for their patience.

This update is expected to be released for Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5, and PC. For consoles, it will include a performance mode that should allow the game to run at a (hopefully steady) 60FPS. There will be a quality mode that bumps up the visual settings and pushes a 4K resolution at the cost of the 60FPS framerate. There will also be several bug fixes and the addition of Creation Club content with the update.

Fallout 4 first launched in 2015 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. Since its initial release, it received several updates and several pieces of downloadable content like the Far Harbor and Nuka-World expansions.
