Fallout 76 was an enormous disappointment of 2018, it had a lot of hype, but upon release, everyone was shocked at how buggy it was. The launch itself was miserable, but they have since come forth and apologized on Reddit. Bethesda promised in their post on Reddit that they will release numerous updates to fix the game. Despite, the huge 54GB being an utter mess, we hope to see the better of Fallout 76.
Moving on, we were informed that some players who tried to refund Fallout 76, they succeeded in doing so. Though, other players weren’t getting refunds because it was against Bethesda’s policies. Why were some players getting refunds and others weren’t? Players asked. Some fans said that a few people were getting refunds because of their reasoning in their refund emails. But, that is unlikely.
The state of the situation right now is messy and complicated. The lawyers over at Migliaccio & Rathod LLP are planning to sue Bethesda over their shady policy of not refunding the game. The Fallout 76 Power Armor Edition came with issues as well, the price tag for these collector’s items is a whopping 200$. The duffel bag is advertised to be made out of Canvas, but it turned out to be Nylon, the angry user took the issue to Twitter, and luckily Bethesda replied saying “The bag shown in the media was a prototype and was too expensive to make” and “We aren’t planning on doing anything about it”.

Now, this is a massive issue because the lawyers could sue Bethesda for fraud as well. All these issues are raising red flags for the fans and are making them turn their backs to Bethesda.
According to Motherboard, the lawyers said that they are receiving calls upon calls and most of the callers are seeking for refunds. They are forming a client list and investigating similar cases and then stated “After that we’ll reach out to [Bethesda] to see if they’re interested in an informal resolution,” Migliaccio said. “After that, we’ll move forward with the class action.”
However, other than Bethesda’s terms of services, there isn’t any official statement from them about why some players are getting refunds while others are getting denied.
All we can say now is that thoroughly inspect the games from Bethesda before buying them.
