‘Fallout Shelter’ Finally Coming To Android, Totally Worth The Wait

Fallout Shelter is finally coming to Android after a long wait, Bethesda Softworks vice president of PR and marketing confirms.

When Fallout 4 was announced by Bethesda, not only did the gaming community rejoice for the Fallout 4 console game, but they also celebrated the surprise release of Fallout Shelter, a Fallout-spinoff game for mobile users.

While Fallout Shelter was released early for iOS users, Android users were left in the dark for quite a time, since Fallout Shelter was not available for Android from the beginning. However, Destructoid reports that finally, the wait has almost come to an end, and Android users will be able to download Fallout Shelter to their smartphones by August.

The confirmation that Fallout Shelter will already be available in Android in August came from Pete Hines himself, Bethesda vice president for PR and marketing. Although he advises everyone to hold their horses for now, he expects Bethesda to come out with an official announcement sometime next month.

Pete Hines told Gamesbeat that he is very pleased that Fallout Shelter is doing very well.

"We're very pleased. Fallout Shelter is doing amazingly well, with no real buildup. To take such a light approach to monetization compared to other free-to-play games -- we felt like we wanted to err on the side of caution and make it very unobtrusive, make sure it was fun first and foremost. So far so good."

Fallout Shelter came out for iOS initially during Bethesda's presentation at the E3 this year, but even at that time, Bethesda promised that the game will come to Android.
