It's that time of the year again – with E3 2018 on the horizon, publishers are teasing what lies ahead for this year's biggest video game showcase. Bethesda is already laying the foundations for its own impending announcement, tied to its Fallout role-playing game (RPG) franchise.
Teasers kicked off on May 29, with a post to the Bethesda Game Studios Twitter account, housing the iconic "Please Stand By" test pattern. Similar graphics have been paired with previous Fallout announcements, including the leadup to Fallout 4's unveiling ahead of E3 2015. The cryptic teaser has since been followed with a stream on the official Bethesda Twitch account, featuring the same message and a Vault Boy bobblehead.
So what does this all mean? Nobody knows right now, considering that leaks surrounding future Fallout titles are mostly non-existent. With three years since Fallout 4, we could be seeing a new title on the way – especially accounting for the short period between Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas. Fallout 3's tenth anniversary is approaching too, which could signal a remaster in the works. Alternatively, it could be a port of previous Fallout titles to Nintendo Switch, given Bethesda's previous investments in the platform.
In the meantime, we'll simply have to wait. Today's post is likely proceeding further teasers, before a more substantial reveal at Bethesda's E3 showcase on June 10. In the meantime, we'll be updating this post if new details surface.
