Bethesda downplays Fallout 4 announcement rumors

There has been a lot of speculation surrounding Fallout 4 over the last few weeks, with rumors suggesting that we will see  a reveal and announcement at the annual VGX awards this year. However, Bethesda is now downplaying the rumors and claiming that it won't be showing anything at the awards show.

Fallout 4 was expected to follow in the footsteps of Skyrim, with a reveal at the VGX awards, followed by gameplay footage at E3 with the full game releasing in November next year. Unfortunately, according to Pete Hines, Bethesda won't be showing anything and will merely be there to support MachineGames, which released Wolfenstein: The New Order, earlier this year.


The latest Wolfenstein game has been nominated for a few awards, including best shooter and best narrative. Previous rumors have suggested that Fallout 4 will take place in Boston and the voice actor for Three Dog will return. However, we have no idea when an official announcement will be made.

The VGX awaeds take place on the 5th of December at 6PM Pacific time, 9PM Eastern and 2AM here in the UK.

KitGuru Says: This is certainly disappointing news. However, I do wonder why it has taken Bethesda so long to say something about this, considering that people started getting excited about a potential Fallout 4 announcement way back at the end of October. They certainly took their sweet time denying the rumors.
