Mysterious Bethesda Announcement Sparks Fallout 4 Rumours (Updated)

Stay up to date on the latest in the gaming world

Earlier today, the above, and apparently legitimate, announcement email from Bethesda popped up on the web and started creating quite a stir. Whether wishful thinking or blind hope, there is no doubt that the feel of the image is distinctly Fallout-like, but does it point to Fallout 4? Most fans seem to think so.

Other speculations for the announcement include a Skyrim remake for the new generation, a Fallout 1 and 2 related announcement following their recent removal from GOG and Steam, and, of course, the forever present Half-Life 3 rumour. It’s currently unclear whether the date is set for January 12th or December 1st, though I’d probably put money on the former.

Update: Pete Hines has since debunked this rumour on twitter. Looks like we’ve still got to wait for the real deal.
