Back in 2020 during the 23rd anniversary of the Fallout series, I did what I normally would do which is celebrating it on September 30th. Business as usual, however a few weeks later I saw certain people celebrating and saying that October 10th is the ACTUAL day FO1 was released on. I was confused at first and simply brushed it off, but then in the following months I decided to look into it and what do you know. Somebody on the Wikipedia found two interesting pages that debunk the supposed September 30th release date, both sources seem credible, but don't actually 100% confirm the authenticity of said release date. Overall, here are the sources: A PC Gamer article announcing newly released games around early October: And most importantly... THE FALLOUT 1 DEVELOPMENT LOGS: This update right here shows that a glitch was found on Sept 30th and needed to be fixed ASAP, making it impossible for FO1 to be released then. And these updates show that the game was being shipped and going on shelves between October 6th and October 10th. Here's a link to the original page for those of you who want to see the whole thing for themselves! https://web.archive.org/web/20000817224417/http://www.interplay.com/fallout/log.html So what are your thoughts? When was FO1 actually released? And for any OG fans from back in the day who are still around, do you know anything about this and what's the correct date? Also, the reason why I'm making this post it's because since the 25th anniversary is coming up, and ever since I was made aware of such a possible misconception. For me as a Fallout fan, I really want to correct a wrong if there even is any, it seems that a lot of us have possibly been celebrating FO1 and the ENTIRE series on the wrong day this whole time. And I want to fix this to the best of my ability, heck if Bethesda won't do it(and yes they STILL believe that it was released on September 30th) we the fans must step up and figure this out. WHOSE WITH ME!?
