Even before Fallout 76 was released, fans were clamoring for Bethesda to add pets to the open-world game. Now, it’s finally happening–maybe.
As part of a recent Reddit AMA, project lead Jeff Gardiner teased that Bethesda is looking into the possibility of introducing pets, but not ones you can eat. “Edible ones? I kid. Now that we have our companions system in the game, we are looking to add pets as well,” Gardiner said (via Kotaku).
At PAX Australia in October 2018, just a month before Fallout 76 launched in November of that year, Bethesda boss Pete Hines said to a crowd that the online RPG would not allow you to get a dog companion at launch.
