No More Fallout 4: Pip-boy Editions

While at Quakecon, Gamespot spoke with Bethesda’s Marketing VP Pete Hines and apparently the fans have overloaded the factories and there will be no more pip-boys made for the foreseeable future.

According to Pete Hines:

“They’re being made today, it’s not like they’re done and sitting in a warehouse. [The factories would tell us,] this is what the yields say. I mean, we don’t make [the Pip-Boy Editions], and we’d go back to [the factories] and say, ‘Demand for this is insane, we’ve got to make more.’ And they’d move other projects off or shift stuff to other factories and it just came to [them telling Bethesda], ‘Final answer: sorry, this is as many as we can make.’ And we sold every single one of those that we could.”

“We made a s**tload of Pip-Boys, and we went back and made more, and went back and made more. I keep seeing stuff about, ‘Oh, you only did a few thousand.” No–we did a ton of these things. I think we did more of these things than we did for any collector’s edition we’ve ever done, ever.”

If you weren’t able to pre-order a pip-boy, looks like you might not get another chance, unless you want to open another factory and offer to help make more.

Fallout 4 releases November 11, 2015 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
