Fallout Shelter on PlayStation 4 Is Not a Certainty
According to comments on Twitter, Bethesda executive Pete Hines isn't certain that Fallout Shelter will be coming to PS4.
This week marked the launch of Fallout Shelter on Xbox One and Windows 10. When asked about possible PlayStation 4 support, Bethesda Marketing Executive Pete Hines did not give a definitive answer.
The question came to Hines on Twitter. He replied with the following.
@Elektr0ns dunno. We didn’t make it for Xbox. We made it for universal windows platform, which supports a variety of devices

Hines later clarified his statement by noting that “Universal Windows app does not include PS4 support.” Although he did not definitively rule out the possibility of the game’s migration to PS4, it seems that such an endeavor would require a little more work than the port to Xbox One and Windows 10.
Fallout Shelter is a game that originally launched on mobile devices shortly following Bethesda’s first E3 press conference in 2015. The game allows players to take the role of a Vault Overseer by managing the day-to-day lives of the Vault’s many residents, and by expanding facilities to accommodate the Vault’s ever-growing population and ever-present threats.
Recently, Hines also commented on the success of Fallout 4, saying that the game is Bethesda’s “most successful game.”
