According to Howard, this is a unique situation. He has never seen such a large audience growth for Fallout games as after the release of the show. Moreover, many users had never played any Fallout games before.

Howard also reported that to date, 20 million people have played Fallout 76. In December 2023, the number of people who had tried Fallout 76 was 17 million people.
