If you were hoping to see Bethesda's next epic role-playing game at E3, we've got bad news.

When a fan asked on Twitter if the publisher would show off their new project at next month's event, Bethesda marketing boss Pete Hines replied:

"1) I don't really pre-announce our announcements. 2) [Bethesda Game Studios] will not be talking about its next game for a long time."

We've heard rumors about Fallout 4 for a while now but nothing is official and obviously, we should't expect to see it at E3. To help clarify the "long time" comment, Hines added that he just "wanted people to know not to expect any kind of announce any time soon." He's not even sure when that announcement will arrive.

Well, that's okay. It's not like we don't already have some huge RPGs on the horizon ( Dragon Age: Inquisition and The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt , for instance). We can be patient.
