Rumor: Fallout 4 In Development, Set In Boston

Posted on August 21, 2012 by Rae Michelle Richards

The Fallout series might be taking another venture out to the east coast with the next installment in the revitalized Role-playing franchise. Reportedly the next installment which Bethesda Softworks is hard at work on will transport players to The Commonweath, also known as Boston Massachusetts.

Members of Bethesda’s development staff have apparently been scoping out the MIT campus and the surrounding area, all the while working on the game. The connection to MIT is of particular interest, as IGN points out, because of “The Institute”, a future version of the school that is connected to a conflict involving deadly androids.

No word on whether or not this game will be released on current generation hardware or is set for release on the PlayStation 4 (or Orbis) or the Xbox 360. Given that Bethesda has published 3 RPG titles this generation (Oblivion, Fallout 3 and Skyrim) a Next Gen version is almost a certainty, just remember it took them almost 3 years to release Fallout 3 after Elderscrolls IV went gold in early 2006. Perhaps a late 2014 release? We’ll have to wait and see.
