This morning, Bethesda Softworks, the video-game publisher behind “Skyrim” and “Fallout 4,” revealed its next big game after starting an online video countdown yesterday: it’s called “Fallout 76” and the company has promised more details at the E3 gaming industry event on June 10. Here’s the teaser revealed Wednesday:
Online gaming sites have filled in some of the details based on clues from the teaser; it’s likely to be set before the events of “Fallout 4” and will follow characters from Vault 76. It’s possible the game’s release could be as early as October 27, based on a date that appears in the video. And a song played in the teaser suggests the game could be set in rural West Virginia.
Kotaku is reporting that the game is being developed by Bethesda’s Maryland and Austin offices. It says that according to sources, the team that was previously working on a game called “BattleCry” has been working on this. We’ve reached out to Bethesda for confirmation of that and will update this post if we hear back.
Here are some more images from the game:
