Fallout 4

It is likely that over half a decade will have passed by the time we re-enter the dark vision of a future torn apart by the Great War, as in the four years since the release of Fallout: New Vegas, Bethesda are still yet to release any official word about Fallout 4.

Many believed that E3 would be the platform used to announce the future release of their next instalment into the great post-apocalyptic franchise and possibly even release some footage of the game. However, E3 has now come and gone and Wastelanders the world over still know worryingly little about Fallout 4.

With a series as beloved as Fallout, it should come as no surprise that the frustrating state of limbo the fourth title seems to be occupying at the moment has led to all manner of rumour and speculation circulating online about the game. These rumours range from the logical and credible to the unsubstantiated and the speculative. Many of the more dubious claims are based entirely on what some fans would like to see in Fallout 4 rather than on hard evidence, or were inspired by the leaked casting documents which prognosticators seem to put so much credence in.

Of the plethora of rumours which have the internet abuzz, the most believable are that the game will be set in Boston, Massachusetts, and that it will use the same graphics engine which brought Skyrim to life. Aside from these facts we are sceptical about most of the speculation surrounding Fallout 4.
