Rumours about new Fallout came from Germany,where eagle-eyed user spotted light details about new game.
Pete Hines of Bethesda Softworks said: “The whole reason we went out and acquired the license and that we now own Fallout is that we clearly intended to make more than one. This is not something we’re going to do once and then go away and never do it again. When that will be or how long that will be God only knows, but we acquired it specifically because we wanted to own it and develop it and work on it like we do with The Elder Scrolls.” However, in July of 2013. Dellums tweeted that the game he is working on is not being produced by Bethesda Softworks, therefore it was not the anticipated new Fallout title.
On November 13, 2013, an alleged ZeniMax funded website thesurvivor2299.com was created. The site contained several coded messages and morse code, and most notably a timer believed to be counting down to an announcement or teaser trailer for Fallout 4, which was also done with Fallout 3; the messages and morse code was in turn translated by several Fallout fansites. On December 6, Bethesda finally responded in regards to the site stating; “PSA: If you don’t hear it through an official channel like this, assume all rumors and speculation are false.”The site was revealed to be a hoax shortly after.
On December 11, 2013, Kotaku reported that Fallout 4 was indeed in development, said it had voice casting documents, confirmed to be real, which apparently set the game in Massachusetts. The leaked documents do not call the project Fallout, but call it “The Institute” which fits exactly in place and character with M.I.T.. Note that the Fallout 3 game refers to advanced self-aware A.I. androids built at “The Institute”, said to be north of Washington, D.C. (Note: Marvin Minsky‘s Artificial Intelligence Lab at M.I.T. is famous for predicting that one day computer intelligence would equal or surpass humans). The voice script page that was leaked begins with “War. War never changes” – the usual introductory line for the stories in the Fallout series. No release date was mentioned in the document.
On February 18, 2014, Bethesda game director Todd Howard did an interview with Rock, Paper, Shotgun. When asked about new game announcements, he said “We don’t [have a timeframe for our next game announcement], but I think it’s gonna be a while.
Anyhow,if you haven’t played any of Fallout games ,I would recommend that you start with Fallout from 1997.
