Fallout 4 Dev Defends DLC Announcement Coming Before Game's Release
Letting fans know there is post-launch DLC in the works "is a good approach," Bethesda's Pete Hines says.
Last week, Bethesda announced that Fallout 4 would be getting expansion packs starting in 2016. It's not uncommon for publishers to reveal DLC before a game is out the door, but still, not everyone was happy with Bethesda's move. Now, the company's marketing executive has defended the timing of the reveal.
"I think letting folks know our thoughts on it and how it fits into our post-launch plans is a good approach," Pete Hines said to a fan on Twitter who suggested it was irresponsible to announce DLC before a game is released. This person replied to say they appreciated Hines' honesty in his response.

When Bethesda announced Fallout 4's DLC last week, the developer frankly admitted, "We don't know what the actual DLC will be yet." That's because the developer is still heads-down to finish the game.
