Pete Hines is convinced that Redfall will be a good game in the future

Pete Hines, Vice President of PR and marketing of Bethesda SoftWorks, said that the company does not plan to refuse Redfall and that the game will become better and better using updates. The company hopes to raise the quality of the game to the same level as other games such as The Elder Scrolls Online and Fallout 76.

"We are the same company that had launches that have not been the same as we wanted, and we do not quit and do not refuse the game just because it did not begin as it should", – Hines said in an interview with Gamesindustry.Biz, talking about the unsuccessful launch of Redfall. "The launch of The Elder Scrolls Online on the PC was not impeccable, but we did not give up. Now this is an insanely popular multi -platform. The same thing happened with Fallout 76. Redfall is no different for us."

Okay, we did not get the start that we wanted, but this is still a promising game. And we are going to continue to work on it. We are going to make 60 frames per second. We are going to make it a good game. In ten years, there will be people who will join Game Pass, and Redfall will be there.

Hines also talked about how Redfall took additional pressure on the studio when it was about developing the upcoming science fiction playing game Starfield.

Redfall was far from successful for Arkane, Bethesda and Microsoft. According to Microsoft, the shooter collected the minimum number of sales. The reaction to the game was so negative that the Xbox boss Phil Spencer publicly apologized for the state of the game at the time of launch.

Although Arkane Studios stated in the past that Redfall has played from the moment of its release "Millions" players, this figure most likely takes into account the Game Pass subscribers, and also probably ignores key details, such as the amount of time that the players spent in the game, and not just played once and deleted the game.

Bethesda is currently preparing to release one of the largest games of the year – Starfield, which will be released on PC and Xbox Series X/S September 6. More information about the game can be found in our review.
