In the midst of trying to fix Fallout 76, it seems that Bethesda is perhaps also working on a new Fallout title that might release this year. According to a new Amazon listing, it seems Bethesda has a new project for PC, PS4, and Xbox One that could very well be a new Fallout title or possibly a remaster of one of its older games. While this listing should be taken with a grain of salt, it does feature a countdown that is synonymous with the Fallout franchise, so fans could be getting a new game sooner than they thought.
The listing does not give many details about the game – not even a real title. The listing says that the game is slated for a 2019 release, but there is no specific date. The biggest bit of information comes in the form of the solitary video on the page, which is a 13 second video featuring the emergency countdown that is commonly associated with the Fallout franchise. It also seems that the game will have a Deluxe and Collector’s edition, though no prices are specified. With Fallout 76 behind them, and Elder Scrolls VI perhaps a ways off, it is no surprise that Bethesda might have another Fallout title in the works.
While the countdown could just be a placeholder, fans are already speculating what the listing could be for. Some believe that this could be a remaster of Fallout 3 or Fallout: New Vegas, which fans have long been asking for. Regardless of what the placeholder is for, it’s clear that the tease was put there for a reason. Perhaps Bethesda will release some information for it in the near future, but fans may have to wait until E3 to get some major details. Fallout 76 was announced shortly before E3 2018, so this title may follow a similar marketing plan.
Fans of the Fallout franchise are likely hoping that Bethesda will return to the single-player focus that the series has been known for. Bethesda often keeps its projects secret for some time before announcing them, but if the title is supposed to release this year then information may be coming for it sooner than some think.
This untitled Bethesda project has no official release date, but the listing suggests that it will release in 2019.
