Bethesda hints at DLC for Fallout 3

Pete Hines, Vice President of Marketing for Bethesda, has stated that it is highly likely the company will look into offering downloadable content for its upcoming post-apocalyptic title, Fallout 3.
Speaking to Videogaming247.com, Hines commented, “Given how successful it was for us on Oblivion, certainly it’s a given that we’ll look into it and what we’d like to do.”
“But I can’t tell you when, I can’t tell you what it would be, or what it would look like. Will it be bigger stuff like Knights of the Nine or smaller stuff? We’ve no idea. We’ll let folks know once we get down the road.”
Despite this, Hines pointed out that the team is currently in the process of implementing content to the main game itself, and was therefore unable to elaborate more on the possibility of downloadable content in the finished product.
“Obviously we’ve done very well with [DLC] on Oblivion, but the big thing for us is that we’re still working on content for the game itself, and so all our designers and artists are pretty much totally engaged with that,” he said.
“So, until we’re done with that part of the process, we don’t ever think about whatever they’re going to be creating or whatever they’re going to be doing [after the game’s finished].”
Fallout 3 is currently scheduled for release in late 2008.
