Op IGN werd een blog geschreven met de titel ‘Can Bethesda Make Fallout 4 the Best Game of the Next Generation?‘ waarop fans natuurlijk reacties achter konden laten. In het artikel stond echter een opmerkelijke paragraaf.
First things first, I know that Fallout 4 is currently in active development at Bethesda. They recently announced they would not be releasing anymore DLC for Skyrim because it was time to move the team to the next project, that next project is Fallout 4. It was in pre-production months before Skyrim even launched.
Een level designer die eerder aan Fallout 2 en Fallout: New Vegas heeft gewerkt, gaf commentaar.
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 installments because it seemed like a really intriguing location to explore
Een echte aankondiging is het natuurlijk niet. Maar het is beter dan niets…
