Bethesda recently confirmed that it has a new Fallout game in the pipeline which is called Fallout 76. It’s already started taking pre-orders for the title even though the game hasn’t been properly revealed and we don’t even know when it’s going to be released. It appears that the Amazon listing for the title may have briefly revealed the possible Fallout 76 release date.
Amazon had initially listed Fallout 76 release date as July 31st, 2018. The pre-order page had gone live on Amazon shortly after the brief teaser trailer was released by Bethesda. The seemingly precise release date has since been changed from July 31st, 2018 to December 31st, 2019 which is most definitely a placeholder as Bethesda is expected to release the game this year.
Bethesda hasn’t officially confirmed when it’s going to release Fallout 76 but there’s speculation online that the July 31st release date is known to Amazon which is undoubtedly one of the biggest online retailers of games so it wouldn’t be surprising if Amazon knew about the release date ahead of time.
However, there’s a possibility that the July 31st date might have been mentioned in error because history tells us that Bethesda normally doesn’t release new Fallout titles in July. They come out in October or November and that’s when many already expect Fallout 76 to be scheduled for.
It’s not saying anything about the title’s release date just yet but with E3 2018 just around the corner, it’s only a matter of time before we find out these details about the new Fallout game.
