It’s real. It’s finally happening. Right? Yeah, probably. At least, we hope so. Gah!
Anyway, this morning, visitors to Bethesda’s official website were treated to the image of a Fallout-inspired test pattern and an accompanying countdown clock, which expires tomorrow at 10:00 AM (Eastern Time). Is this the Fallout 4 announcement we’ve all been waiting for? Probably, but it’s just as likely that when the clock strikes zero Bethesda will announce that the real Fallout 4 announcement will take place during their E3 2015 Press Conference, which is set for June 14.
That said, Fallout 4’s status as an in-development project has been a bit of an open secret at Bethesda for several years. Company executives will happily discuss the game and a casting call referencing locations from the series was even made available to the public in 2013.
So, yeah. It’s real and it’s finally happening.
