Fallout 4 Website Creator Hoped His Stunt Would Force Bethesda To Reveal Their Hand

fallout4As gamers might have heard by now, the mysterious Fallout 4 website turned out to be a hoax and an elaborate prank. On the surface it might seem that the creator of the website might simply be trolling the gaming community simply because he could, but as it turns out his intentions while a little mean, were somewhat good as the goal of the fake website was to force Bethesda’s hand into revealing something about the franchise, such as to either deny that it was being worked on flat out, or to reveal that they have nothing to announce yet, which is good news as it could mean that the game is in development.

This was according to the prankster’s Reddit AMA where he wrote, “I wanted to force Bethesda to reveal something during VGX, and bring [the Reddit] Fallout community together (for at least 3 weeks). Unfortunately, this plan failed.” While he failed to force Bethesda to do anything, he did reveal that Bethesda got in touch with him and warned him about the potential backlash he might face from creating the fake website. In fact had it not been for Bethesda’s intervention, the prankster would have released a fake CGI trailer which would undoubtedly cause many to fall for it.

At the end of the day, however, he admitted that it was a pretty mean-spirited prank, with him concluding, “I know I’m a douche.”
