Rumor: Fallout 4 To Be Set In Boston
Posted on Saturday, August 18 @ 18:27:06 PST by Jonathan_Leack
Video game developers are suddenly intrigued about the New England area. First it was Assassin's Creed III which ditched its five years of European and Eastern roots to set sail to the beautiful Northeast, and if new rumors are sound, the Fallout series will be shortly behind.
A user on Reddit named fallout4boston—cleverness at its prime—who claims to be working on Fallout 4 posted the following:
We've seen rumors come and pass over the years, but this one holds some weight. First off, Fallout 4 has all but been confirmed. Bethesda's original licensing contract for Fallout included three games, and only two have been released so far (Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas). Additionally, Fallout4.com was registered by Zenimax Media—a parent company of Bethesda—several years ago and was recently updated by the company.
As far as the location being in Boston goes, it would be a relatively big surprise since many have been expecting it to be set in New York. However, there were several mentions of a group of survivors in the Massachusetts area made in Fallout 3. They were referred to as The Commonwealth, and virtually everything mentioned about them includes technology, androids, and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Sounds like an intriguing setting for Fallout to me.
Seeing one of America's most precious regions marred by the harsh reality of apocalyptic fiction may be difficult for some—it's okay, Anthony, we're here for you—but that's exactly what Fallout strives to do. Expect an official announcement of Fallout 4 along with either a confirmation or dismissal of these rumors in the short-term future.
