Bethesda, straight on the heels of the latest Elder Scrolls Online release, are now teasing the release of a brand new entry into the Fallout franchise. When Bethesda posted a Fallout themed screenshot that read “Please Stand By,” fans naturally assumed that it would be a port, possibly Fallout 3 being ported to newer consoles or Fallout 4 for the Nintendo Switch, but Kotaku is reporting that it is an entirely new game on the way.
Fallout 4 was released only a few years ago, and fans are saying that there hasn’t been nearly enough time for a true Fallout game to be made. Perhaps, taking a queue from the success of Elder Scrolls Online, Bethesda is planning to release an online MMORPG that takes place in the Fallout universe. It would certainly add some variety to the genre, drawing players in my the droves.
The timing of the announcement would line up perfectly to the release schedule of Fallout 4, which was released in 2015. Bethesda announced the game in June of 2015, and it was released in November of 2016. If Bethesda announces a new entry into the Fallout series, fans should expect the game to hit shelves in November, just in time for the holiday season.
Bethesda will be showcasing the game at this year’s E3 event. Bethesda will take the floor on June 10th at 6:30PM to show off the game and give fans a taste of whats to come in the very near future.
Whether the game is a remaster, a port, an MMORPG, or the next main series in the franchise, fans may be able return to the wasteland very soon.
