Why Bethesda isn’t bringing the Fallout Anthology to PS4 and Xbox One

Heading into E3 2015, may people were predicting announcements and news that would be uncovered, and while some of the theories came true, others didn't. One of the latter was that Bethesda Softworks would announce a Fallout Collection for the PS4 and Xbox One, but as we all know that didn't happen. A collection was eventually announced, but it was for the platform many weren't expecting.

It'd be great and all, just glad all their attention is focused on 4. I'd love a mini-bundle of new vegas and 3 together with all DLCs remastered 1080/30 for say $30-40 for next gen , but as I said, glad they're fully committed to just making this game

Well, they can hire a different studio to bring it to next gen consoles. It doesn't have to be the studio working on this game necessarily. I think it be worth it to bring it to X1 and PS4.

That's what happened with New Vegas in the first place, and it was a while before they patched it to 'working' condition. Either way it's not a necessity. There's been enough old games to replay through already.

I want them focused on Fallout 4 primarily for the next six months at least to cover launch and post-launch fixes effectively. Anything else Fallout related from older games can wait until Bethesda is experiencing a slight lull in content due to new things just being a bit too far away. I don't want them focused on porting and optimizing old PC games for modern home console hardware if resources are better spent elsewhere.

That said, if you haven't played Fallout 2, get it on PC. Now. Just do it. The game is old enough that a potato these days could run it, but it holds up well.

Xbox One Owners getting Fallout 3 for Back Compatible is a pretty good substitute/combination for what looks looks to be an incredible Fallout 4.

XBOX can do them via Backwards Compatibility at least

How? The original Fallout series were never on Xbox. The Xbox didn't even exist when they were released in 1997-8.

Xbox and PS2 only got an action RPG, Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel, in 2004.
