There have been plenty of rumors, and even some concrete evidence.

But Fallout 4 isn't official and probably won't be for quite some time. Bethesda director Todd Howard told RockPaperShotgun that the team isn't prepared to announce anything just yet.

"We don't [have a timeframe for our next game announcement]. But I think it's gonna be a while."

Howard added that they've "gotten fairly used to all the questions and curiosity over the years," and he understands that "everyone wants information." But it's clear that the team is still in a semi-building phase, as Howard says they're trying to figure out which of their ideas will "stick." Only then will they release some details about the project, which we all assume is Fallout 4 set in a post-apocalyptic Boston.

As for that Boston rumor, Howard had nothing to say. So, guess franchise fans are just gonna have to be patient.

World loves these these games but for me personally I quickly added a ton of cheats and just went through the entire game killing everyone.

I have them (FOIII and NV) on the PC and immediately modded them with new areas, story lines, weapons and such. Some good fun there.

If you haven't played Fallout or Fallout 2 you can pick them up on GOG for cheap. That should tide you over for a bit.

Not surprising, really. Bethesda already has Wolfenstein, ESO and The Evil Within coming out this year, and if the other announcement is any indication DOOM will be their biggest hitter of next year, and then there's still Prey 2 to think about.

I'd expect to see the Fallout 4 announcement towards the end of the year for a late 2015 release. By then it will have been four years since Skyrim. Long enough to make it great.

Fallout 3 came out in 2008. I'm more than happy to give them time to make a new game but for chrissakes, what do they want? A freakin' decade?

John F. Kennedy stated in 1961 that we would go to the moon and by 1969 we were there. Do they actually need more time than that to make a damned video game?

Bethesda..(clears throat) Its been 5 yrs since fallout 3!! you promised 3 Fallout games developed by you! New Vegas doesnt count as it was not developed by you, so that is one Fallout game by you!! quit avoiding the obvious you guys grabbed up ID software and its IP's and started focusing on them and put Fallout on the backburner! not to mention that neither one of these games-Wolfenstein,The Evil Within,Doom reboot,Prey 2, ESO are developed by BGS!! the only games BGS has made in the last 5 yrs is Skyrim!! thats one!!
Fallout 3 was obviously developed and finished by 2008.You even had the build for Skyrim going by then. So you had basically 3/4 of a game albeit massive that you were working on in the last five years!!!
I understand these games take a long time to make, but this is bs! You either have a build of Fallout 4 going since late 2010 and are playing dumb and/or trying to use the misdirection tactic on us or you guys are letting one of your best "Acquired" franchises fade into obscurity.
Also whats with the secretcy? i know every game developers,movie developers,etc have such methods and they have the right to use it,but yours Bethesda is a leap beyond all others. I'm suprised you even communicate with anybody outside your staff base. Snap back to reality, your not the Iluminati for crying out loud!

I should mention to you Bethesda that the road your taking with Fallout and its development time is a road similar to another developer that is taking. It doesnt take a decade or more to make any game in reality.(cough Square-Enix cough FFXV cough)
I'll be in a retirement home by the time the last Fallout developed by BGS is made!
