Fallout 4 Dismissed Release Rumors by Bethesda Breaks Hopes
A lot of people have been talking about a possible Fallout 4 release at the Gamescom event this year, which is taking place in Cologne, Germany. While these were just rumors, Bethesda made it clear that we are not going to see these rumors coming to life.
A fan of the Fallout series asked Pete Hines (who is the vice president of Bethesda Softworks) if the Fallout 4 will be released at Gamescom. The tweet from Hines completely dismissed this speculation.
While Pete Hines dispelled the information (crushing people’s dreams, if we may dramatically add), he didn’t make any statement about when we are actually going to see the game hitting the markets. We can assume that Bethesda won’t reveal anything about this post-apocalyptic video game which had so much success in the past.
As there is no much hope that the game will appear in 2014, we just have to be satisfied with two other big games the company is releasing: The Evil Within and The Elder Scrolls Online. The Evil Within is a game that is under Shinji Mikami’s supervision, the man behind the Resident Evil series and the father of survival horror. The game is a horror survival video game which is scheduled to be released on 21 of October, this year. While Bethesda already released the MMORPG Elder Scrolls Online, the company only released the PC and Linux versions of the game. Now, we are expecting the PS 4 and Xbox One editions, but a clear release date is not yet known.
Gameranx went as far as saying that the Fallout 4 will actually be released in 2014, December at the Spike’s Video Game Awards. They are basing this on a previous announcement of the Fallout: New Vegas. We can only hope that this rumor is true.
Bethesda officially stated that we won’t see Fallout 4 at the QuakeCon event that is held in July either. It’s a good thing that Doom 4 will, though.
Pete Hines has actually stated for MCV Magazine that they don’t leave any room for error, and that the waiting will be very rewarding: “We view that similarly to Wolfenstein, because it’s been so long since the last Doom game. We are going in as if we need to prove ourselves all over again. We have no free passes. Nobody will assume this is going to be awesome.”
