The release date for Wastelanders update for Fallout 76 has been moved from 07 April to 14 April 2020, Bethesda announced. The development team needs more time for the final testing before the update officially launches on all platforms.
Bethesda had to delay Fallout 76's major update named Wastelanders again but fortunately, it is just for one additional week. The update is now set to launch on 14 April 2020.
Bethesda explained their decision in the statement over at Twitter. The publisher say that they need more time for the final testing before the update arrives on all platforms.
Bethesda recently switched to full remote work for the safety of everyone in the team and this has affected how the developers work on the final testing so the delay was somewhat inevitable due to these circumstances. Furthermore, Bethesda explain that they did everything to minimise the delay to one week.
As you may know, Wastelanders' story starts exactly one year after the story in the base game begins. The update will introduce two major locations - Foundation and The Crater.
The Foundation is the home of the Settlers while The Crater is populated by the other faction named Raiders. Both settlements will act as hub locations where players can do all sorts of activities.
