Fallout Shelter likely launching for Android in August
Fallout Shelter was announced only a couple weeks ago. It seemed to be a very fun and entertaining game, but us Android fans were a bit upset about the fact that it was an iOS-only release at launch. What about Android? We had nothing but the promise of a release to come “soon”. Today we are finally getting a release window straight from Bethesda.
A fan took it to Twitter to politely ask a Bethesda employee about the release of Follout Shelter on Android. Bethesda’s own Pete Hines then answered that progress was going well, and though there was no release date announced, he expected the game to “be out next month” – so August.
@kolos_kovacs coming along nice. haven’t announced a date, but should be out next month. we’ll let you know when we have specifics— Pete Hines (@DCDeacon) July 1, 2015
It’s not really an official statement yet, but it’s as close as we can get to it. The information comes straight from the dog’s mouth, making it nearly as credible as an announcement. We still have some time to wait before Fallout Shelter reaches our favorite mobile OS, so you may want to get yourself another cool game to play in the meantime. Either that or go ahead and download it for iOS if you have access to one of Apple’s devices. It’s pretty much what I’ve been forced to do!
I must admit I’ve been playing this game for quite some time and I am in love with it. I have spent countless hours building my shelter up to many underground levels. I have so many residents I can no longer remember which is which, except for a few very leveled up ones. All I do is look at their stats and put them in a room where they will be most productive for the vault’s well-being!
Who else is playing this game? Do you love it as much as I do? Are you waiting for it to hit Android? Hit the comments to share your thoughts!
