Game developer Bethesda is under investigation by a Washington DC-based law firm due to the allegations against them of their refund policies for Fallout 76.
Fallout 76 developer in trouble
Recently, several game reviewers have refused to make their reviews of Bethesda’s latest video game due to the numerous bugs and technical issues it has. Some of their reviewers are complaining that it is really horrible to play and some of them are already claiming refunds back from the developers.
In a recent post on a certain website, the gamers who bought the game claimed they certainly got a refund from Bethesda when they issued a ticket. After a while, it seemed like the developers had second thoughts and backed out, which left the gamers confused. They were surprised that they could not get a refund and that their applications had been refused on the basis that the customers who have already downloaded the game are not eligible for a refund.
Due to this really strange behavior from Bethesda, a law firm based from Washington DC called Migliaccio & Rathod is now conducting an investigation. They are now looking into the developer’s weird trade practice. The law firm states:
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.
The game is now available on PlayStation 4.
