Fallout 4 Becomes Bethesda's Best-Performing Game Ever

Fallout 4 has surpassed The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim as Bethesda’s most successful game of all time. Pete Hines, Bethesda’s marketing executive, mentioned the game’s success on the Kinda Funny Gamecast.

Fallout 4 has gotta be the most successful game we’ve ever launched in our company’s history. More than Skyrim, in terms of what we did.
– Hines

He didn’t delve into what the “most successful” characterization means. It’s possible he’s referring to sales. Skyrim sold over 20 million copies between 2011 and 2014. Fallout 4 had 12 million shipments on launch day.
