Law firm investigating Bethesda for "refusing to issue refunds"

There has been a lot of confusion about refunds for Fallout 76.

The situation regarding Fallout 76 refunds has been very hazy recently, as confusion has emerged after conflicting reports stated on the one hand that Bethesda was issuing refunds, while other reports said that they had rescinded their offer.

Some users had claimed on Reddit that they had indeed received refunds once they had applied for them, but other users in response said they had their applications rejected, and it's based on this alleged refusal for a refund that law firm Migliaccio & Rathod LLP has gotten involved, issuing a statement on their website.

"Migliaccio & Rathod LLP is currently investigating Bethesda Game Studios for releasing a heavily-glitched game, Fallout 76, and refusing to issue refunds for PC purchasers of the game who found it to be unplayable because of its technical problems," the statement reads.

"While minor bugs and glitches are expected with the release of most new games, Fallout 76 launched with a 56GB patch that has proven to be but a starting point for the game's problems. Gamers who have tried to receive a refund because of the game's myriad glitches have been unable to do so since they downloaded the game, leaving them to deal with an unplayable experience until patches bring it back to a playable state."

As has been pointed out, this doesn't necessarily mean we'll see a lawsuit, as this is just an investigation as of right now, and the firm are asking for those who have applied to refunds to contact them. Also it's worth noting that a quick peruse of their blog post reveals they're investigating a lot of different big corporations, so it might not be that all of these result in lawsuits.

"The concept of a fully online Fallout title seemed so very sweet in theory but Bethesda has made more than a few stumbles along the way."
