It seems the Fallout 76 controversies could never end. Just when the always online requirement and the numerous bugs, glitches and optimization issues have caused havoc in the gaming community, Bethesda faces another setback in the form of a lawsuit made against them. The lawsuit comes after Bethesda alleged denied refunding money to quite some players who did not want to continue playing Fallout 76.
Migliaccio & Rathod LLP, an US law firm operating out of Washington D.C., has started an investigation into the grievances of players following an outbreak of complaints against Bethesda about the unplayable state of Fallout 76. The firm put up an advertisement on Reddit that they are investigating the case, and advises anyone who has been refused a refund for Fallout 76 to share their experience with a representative of the firm. So far, the response has been overwhelming.
The post read :
“Migliaccio & Rathod LLP is currently investigating Bethesda Game Studios for releasing a heavily-glitched game, Fallout 76, and refusing to issue refunds for PC purchasers of the game who found it to be unplayable because of its technical problems. While minor bugs and glitches are expected with the release of most new games, Fallout 76 launched with a 56GB patch that has proven to be but a starting point for the game’s problems. Gamers who have tried to receive a refund because of the game’s myriad glitches have been unable to do so since they downloaded the game, leaving them to deal with an unplayable experience until patches bring it back to a playable state.”
Bethesda has not reached out to any of the affected players as of yet.
