Soon after the success of â€˜Fallout 3â€™ in 2010, there has been many reports and even speculation as to the next saga in this game title series. Now, with the upcoming Electronics Entertainment Expo 2015 to be held in June, the gameâ€™s publishing company Bethesda had announced it would hold its very first press conference.
Many pundits are anticipating Bethesdaâ€™s announcement for both â€˜Fallout 4â€™ and â€˜ElderScrolls 6â€™. The rumor going around that aside from the announcement of an upcoming sequel, the company would also release the new sagas in the said event.
The first signs of an upcoming title came about when a voice actor announced he was working on â€œFallout 4â€™ and the approval of the trademark for the game was formalized in Europe. It is also surmised that the announcement would be for the release of the game title for the XBOX One, PS4 and PC platforms.
The rumors were further fueled when Bethesdaâ€™s official blog reported that the company is urging its fans to â€™save the dateâ€™ of June 14, 2015 for an announcement to be made in Hollywood, CA.
Other rumors have been based on leaked casting documents dated way back in 2013. The documents obtained by Kotaku said â€˜Fallout 4â€™ production is underway and the setting for the gameplay would be the Boston, MA area.
What is official though is what Bethesda said in its official website, â€œParts of our team have been in preproduction on our next major project, and that game (presumably Fallout 4) is at the point where it requires the studioâ€™s full attention to make it our biggest and best work yet.â€
It must be remembered that after â€˜Fallout 3â€™, the company then unveiled the highly successful â€œSkyRimâ€. Bethesdaâ€™s sister company ZeniMax Online Studios had also released â€œElder Scrolls Onlineâ€™.
Back in 2008, in an interview of Bethesdaâ€™s VP for Public Relations Peter Hines, he said referring to the â€œFalloutâ€ game, â€œThis is not something weâ€™re going to do once and then go away and never do it again.â€
He added in that same interview with TVG, â€œWhen 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 â€œThe Elder Scrollsâ€.â€
