A placeholder has been found on Amazon that seems to point to a new Fallout game being released this year.
As revealed by @Wario64 on Twitter, the new placeholder comes with some information lists PS4, Xbox One and PC as the chosen platforms for the new game.
The listing comes with the pricing of a Standard, Deluxe, and Collector’s Editions for each platform.
The other notable part of the listing is that it comes with a countdown video which is similar to those used in past Fallout games.
So this appears to be more than just a random retail listing and may point to something more on the horizon.
The placeholder comes with the standard Dec 31 release date, which doesn’t give us much to go on.
But it does suggest that this new game could be released in 2019 on the platforms listed above.
While some will be hoping for a new Fallout standalone game to follow on from Fallout 4, fans believe it will be a remake.
Fallout 3 and Fallout New Vegas are prime candidates to be remastered for the current generation of gaming machines.
Bethesda does have other projects expected for launch this year, meaning it could be something entirely different.
But the timing for a remake seems right, especially when you consider the love fans have for Fallout New Vegas.
And if something like this is confirmed, fans could also see some kind of Nintendo Switch announced in the future, based on how Skyrim was handled.
This is isn’t something Bethesda is likely to comment on and will probably remain a mystery until we get closer to E3 2019.
We do know that they have big plans for Fallout 76, the online-only experience currently available on PS4, Xbox One and PC.
This will kick off with the Wild Appalachia expansion in March, which will add new features, the survival game mode, and a series of quests to complete.
“A mythical beast, a lost generation of scouts, and the strongest brew this side of the wasteland,” a message from Bethesda teases.
“Welcome to Wild Appalachia – a series of new quests, features, events, crafting systems and more starting on March 12 and appearing over several weeks. Wild Appalachia includes:
“New Quests: Shear Terror! – Uncover the ‘encryptid’ secrets of Appalachia in a new series of quests and encounters to separate monsters from myths.
“New Quests: Ever Upwards – Journey to the deepest reaches of the woods with new stories for the legendary Pioneer Scouts. Earn merit badges, climb the ranks, and earn a customizable backpack for increased utility.”
