Bethesda's Twitter looks like it's teasing something Fallout related, likely for E3 in a week or so here. I think the only two things this could be are Fallout 4 on Switch or a Fallout 3 remaster. Would anyone be excited for either of those things? (Personally, I'm infinitely more interested in Bethesda as a publisher than as a developer these days)

Obsidian tweeted that it's not them. Which is dissapointing because best case scenario would be a new vegas style half step made by them.

Wishful thinking: Bethesda finishes the 'Fallout 3 in Fallout 4's engine' mod. In before comments about "Bethesda jank", but Fallout 4 has been pretty stable in my experience on PC give or take an iffy mod or two. So having versions of Fallout 3 (and New Vegas) that function pretty well with modern systems would be nice. I don't exactly have copies of Vista laying around for dual booting anymore.

Don't care what it is, I'm buying it day 1. BGS is one of my favorite developers and Todd Howard is my god. Don't @me. On a more serious note, I'm very hyped and can't wait to see what it is. There have been both rumours of Fallout 3 Anniversary Edition (remaster) or Fallout spin-off. Or maybe Starfield was just a codename and it is actually a new Fallout/spin-off. I don't care, I'm hyped and I'm 99,9% buying it day 1.

If anybody at Bethesda Game Studios spent any amount of time working on this when they need to be working on Elder Scrolls 6, then I'm very upset about this. I need a new ES in my life.

If it's almost literally anything else, then I'm excited. Loved FO3 and would play a re-master if it's that. Loved FO4. Would be interested in a spin-off. Basically as long as it's not an MMO or more Fallout Shelter bullshit, I'm down.

My bet is on a new Fallout Shelter.

Edit: It has to be Fallout 4 on Switch though, right?

I'm okay with it just being Fallout 3 but in Fallout 4. However what worries me is that they remove the RPG elements like they did to 4 and it just becomes another Fallout-Like game. Because 4 was a fun game but it wasn't a fun Fallout game.

Also I hope visually they make it like the Glowing Sea, because that was the best place in Fallout 4.

A hand puppet Fallout boy just made an appearance on this this Twitch stream which was rather entertaining.

Wouldn't be shocked if this is either a Fallout 3 Remaster or possibly a new Fallout Shelter game (which I'd like to see). Certainly doubt it's a new Fallout game given that Elder Scrolls is apparently in production at this point.

... because you just know there will be a big reveal here when they have a big E3 presentation coming up in less than 2 weeks. Even a Fallout 3 port/remaster seems like too much for a stream like this.

These types of streams are terrible. It reminds me of those awful Yule log streams that are just looped footage, interspersed with short, uninteresting skits

Fallout 3 or 4 on Switch

(Square) A new fallout game, huh?

"Why yes, a new Fallout game. I certainly don't care."

(Triangle) Did I hear right?

"Why yes, a new Fallout game. I certainly don't care."

(X) Did you hear about the new Bethesda game?

"Why yes, a new Fallout game. I certainly don't care."

(Circle) Do you like pie?

"Pie? No. But video games? Why yes, *load pause* but *load pause* a new Fallout game. I certainly don't care."

Fallout 4 burned me so hard that at this point, I'd rather see Fallout Battle Royal than another janky shooter with janky RPG elements.

I don't know, this seems way to early for that. If it was until E3 that seems like a bit of a dick move by Bethesda. Plus I feel we're in for a new Elder Scrolls than a new Fallout.

There won't be a new Elder Scrolls. Mark my words and feel free to ridicule me if I am wrong.

While I wouldn't want it let's say it's Fallout 3 re-master on Switch that'll be delayed and released on other platforms first.

I'd almost kill for a Fallout 5 but I have zero hopes of that happening any time soon.

@geirr: I understand your enthusiasm. But dear gods, no. It's too soon for even more substantial Fallout content, despite Fallout 4 being almost 3 years old at this point.

Arkane Studios is making a Fallout game. Watch.

They got one of the writers for New Vegas, Chris Avellone. It's clear as day light. I'm going to be right, and all of you will bow before me.

I like these Fallout Switch theories people are putting forth. That makes a lot of sense since Skyrim may have sold just under a million copies in Nintendo's hybrid which isn't bad for a seven year old game. If this news turns out to be a Newer Vegas or some other stand-alone Bethesda-style RPG release, then I think we can say there will be no news, no mention of the next single-player Elder Scrolls game. Chances of that were slim anyway since The Elder Scrolls Online just released another expansion. I fear we won't see a proper ESVI until the MMO is on the decline.

@tru3_blu3: Let's play with that.

My spontaneous thought is that they'd craft a focused story and more rigid narrative in such case, since open world hasn't been Arkane's MO.

Has Avellone been hired by the studio, or is he freelancing for them? That man has a diverse set of credits during the past four years, and none of it seems to entail an actual permanent place anywhere.

Rogue Warrior 2.

The nuclear theme presented in the image obviously sets up a storyline where Richard Marcinko must travel back to North Korea in order to destroy their nuclear weapon facilities.

ESO exists so that they don't have to make another Elder Scrolls game. They want to make other things.

@tru3_blu3: Maaann, I don't think you're right, but I wish I did. I feel like Arkane needs a shot in the arm, and they could do amazing thing with Fallout.

If they made an immersive sim what super-powered lerson would you play as though? A BoS member? An NCR Ranger?

Bethesda has said time and time again that Elder Scrolls VI, while obviously coming eventually, is not due any time soon. They have two games in development ahead of Elder Scrolls VI. Anyone expecting TES VI any time before before like 2022, 2023 is in for big disappointment.

Hmm, the choice of colors lends credence to those New Orleans rumors. I could totally see them teasing a new game here with a "Tune into our E3 conference for an in-depth look", then they show plenty of the game and release this fall. It's been their MO for the last few years. That or it's some disappointing port/remaster that's worse than playing on PC with mods.

Whatever it is, a FO3 remake, a new non numbered game, they better keep the base building in it. All the critics were like "why are we doing this?" CAUSE IT WAS FUN.

They are putting out another TESO expansion next week, so yes, there's more TES for you.

Bethesda has a ton of studio capacity these days. Since it seems extremely unlikely they'll need to outsource a major project again, I have very little hope for the future of the Fallout franchise.

Sounds like this will be a fallout themed hero-shooter made by the Battlecry team. They're going for the 'punky rascal with tattoos' vibe that Rage 2 is also going for. All heroes are based around a weapon. Payload mode has you defending an atomic bomb. Maps are based on fallout locations such as Megaton, Far Harbor, The Pitt etc. Killing people & taking objectives earns you caps which you can spend on cosmetics. Each character has a objectives-tree with more opportunities to win caps.

Now i bet this is all false info :P

Its going to be Fallout 4 on the Switch. They already released ports of DOOM and Skyrim for the console so it makes sense that they would port more games. Also, its an announcement that wouldn't be exciting enough for their stage show. A spin off announcement would be an E3 thing.

It looks like the scene on the Twitch stream was reset/changed to be the Vault Boy sleeping with a watch by him. The watch looks like it's reading 9:47ish. Maybe that's a good time to check back to see if something will happen?

I'm willing to give them one more shot with Elder Scrolls (which, by all accounts, probably isn't happening for a couple more years) but I'm not sure if I need another installment of Bethesda's take on Fallout. Fallout 4 left a bad enough taste in my mouth with some of its design and story decisions that I can't see myself getting super excited about something like a hypothetical Fallout 5 unless they decide to dramatically shift course from a path that's earned them a bajilliondy dollars.

They'd have to really go back and take a good look at why Fallout 4 failed in comparison to 3 and New Vegas before I'd be down for another Fallout. FO4 was just so far off the mark for me, with the terrible dialogue system (and terrible writing to go along with it) and the lack of any real innovation on the core mechanics. V.A.T.S is so done, so so incredibly done. I never want to see that system appear in any of their future games.

Agreed. And so many missed opportunities with characters/lore that they just totally didn't deliver on. The Institute and synths had the opportunity to be a lot more interesting then the cliche that they actually ended up being. Personally the greatest outcome of this announcement if it isn't another Obsidian Fallout, or an outsourced one, is a redux of the first 2 games, but I seriously doubt that will ever happen.
