With the popularity of the Fallout franchise, safe to say that there has been a lot of Fallout 4-related rumors in the past couple of years. Back in 2013 the Fallout 4 trademark was filed, and there was even a teaser website which turned out to be a fake. So what’s the deal? Could we be looking forward to a Fallout 4-related announcement soon?
Well it seems like we weren’t the only ones thinking about it, especially with E3 2014 around the corner. One gamer posted the question to Bethesda’s Pete Hines, asking if E3 could be when Fallout 4 be announced. The bad news is that if you were hoping that was the case, prepare to be disappointed.
Hines has since replied in the negative, stating that not only does Bethesda not pre-announce their announcements, but that if you were hoping to hear announcements from Bethesda Games Studio, you’d be in for a wait as it looks like the studio has nothing new to announce for now. Sure, some might think maybe Hines is playing coy, but it was back in February that Bethesda’s head, Todd Howard, stated that they don’t have a timeframe for their next announcement, so it looks like that sentiment will be holding true.
Just like Valve’s Half-Life 3, Bethesda’s Fallout 4 has been eluding gamers for quite a while now, so it is understandable that many gamers are starting to get a bit impatient and want to hear something concrete. In any case E3 will probably be packed full of other announcements, so if Fallout 4 is not in the cards, perhaps something else will be.
