A new Fallout 4 rumour has showed up on Reddit, a social news and entertainment website. A user named Vithren has posted what is supposeldy a "fallout 4 announcement" in the form of an image.
The image reads as follows.
"Come visit our very special announcement
ON #BETHBLOG AND BETHSOFT.COM"
You can view it here.
Moreover, the user also indicates that the image was emailed to him from this email id, "firstname.lastname@example.org". As proof, the email id has been highlighted in the image.
January or December?
Users on Reddit are speculating whether the indicated date is 12 January, 2014 or 1 December, 2014. However, given that Betesda follows a Month/Day/Year format on its blog, it can be assumed that the announcement date is 1 December, 2014.
It is worth nothing that this is only a rumour and that the game's publisher, Bethesda, is yet to comment on it.
The user in question, Vithren, has also posted a tweet to the developer's Twitter account, asking them to verify if the information is accurate. Bethesda is yet to respond to this tweet as well.
Previous Fallout 4 Developments
Earlier this week, fans of the Fallout franchise have started signing a petition that requests information on Fallout 4 from its publishers. You can read more about that here.
Back in December, Kotaku obtained a collection of documents that were leaked from a recent casting call. Even though the word "fallout" was not mentioned anywhere in the documents, the information in them allowed fans to believe that a game was in the works. There is some speculation that the leak might have even been intentional. You can learn more about that leak here.
The developer also hinted that it won't be releasing Fallout 4 in 2014 with its Christmas card in December. The card contained a list of games that would be comig out this year and Fallout 4 wasn't on it. You can read more about that here.
