Fallout 4 Possible Setting

By XboxBetty, Posted 01 Sep 2012

People have been speculating about Fallout 4 and rumors have been rampant for years now. However, Bethesda has said very little about the possibility of Fallout 4. Back in 2008 Bethesda Softworks confirmed to TVG that they have plans beyond Fallout 3. Flash forward to present time and we see that this has happened (Fallout: New Vegas). Many thought this meant Fallout 4 as Pete Hines (Bethesda's VP of PR) claimed:

"The whole reason we went out and acquired the license and that we now own Fallout is that we clearly intended to make more than one," "This is not something we're going to do once and then go away and never do it again."

With all of the rumors about Fallout 4 an official announcement is imminent. Bethesda is bound to break the ice, but for now rumors and speculation will have to do. Even those that may or may not have reliable sources.


Fallout 4 will most likely release with next-gen consoles.


Recently a Reddit user semi-claiming to work for MIT posted that he or she was aware of the setting for Fallout 4. Apparently, Bethesda has connections to MIT; many of Bethesda's employees attended and received their degrees from MIT. In fact the founder of Bethesda teaches game studies and engineering at MIT. Therefore it is possible this Reddit user may have ties to Bethesda or its employees. The Reddit user blatantly stated:

"The rumors are true, Fallout 4 will take place in Boston. In case you haven't heard, Bethesda has recently been scoping out and researching Boston. They also have a strong connection to MIT. I may or may not be an MIT employee. But that's really all I can say for fear of losing my job. I am telling you it will take place in Boston."

The user later apologizes for being vague saying he is worried, not only about his job but, about a possible lawsuit. His claims are backed up by another Reddit user who also says he has heard reports from people in the Boston area that Bethesda is around doing research for Fallout 4.

Reliable sources or not, it is difficult to trust these claims as the people behind them are remaining anonymous. It's safe to assume the details about Fallout 4 will be released around the time of next-generation consoles. For now: rumors.
