We have not heard such a great deal about Fallout 4 from the developers, but fans are not surprised about lack of talk as Pete Hines said “not to even ask us about the game or questions how far in development the game is.” So therefore if you cannot get news, where are fans to turn?
IGN made a post “Can Bethesda Make Fallout 4 the Best Game Of The Next Generation?” Fans of the game believe that they will, but there was one thing that did stand out above everything else.
“First things first, I know that Fallout 4 is currently in active development at Bethesda.”
Fans enjoyed hearing this of course but some asked if IGN knew something that no one else did. Of course we wouldn’t be surprised by this as they are close to some of the big names.
However we did hear some more news about Fallout 4.
This news came from one of the designers who had worked on Fallout 2 along with Fallout: New Vegas. The designer said:
“We actually were kicking around some ideas after New Vegas for cool locations for the next Fallout. One of our designers Nathanial Chapman mentioned it’d be really cool to do a Fallout New Orleans. Have an entire city that had like a dam structure and lots of factions and tensions fighting in that city. And then our lead programmer on New Vegas, Frank Kowalkowski, he really wanted to do a Fallout that is set in San Francisco,” Avellone said. “In terms of stuff on the East Coast, there was this really brief mention of this region called the Erie Stretch in the Fallout 3 DLC [The Pit]. And I am really curious to see if they’ll bring that region back in future Fallout instalments because it seemed like a really intriguing location to explore.”
Fans had hoped that news would come out at Gamescon but Bethesda chose to keep quiet once again.
