Bethesda hires Guillermo del Toro’s Production Company for Fallout 4 Trailer
It appears that Bethesda has hired Guillermo del Toro’s production company to create a cinematic trailer for its unannounced RPG Fallout 4, according to the LinkedIn profile of a 3D artist contracted to work on it.
The artist’s CV (pictured above) states that he was hired by California-based Mirada Studios between December 2014-March 2015 to create a “Fallout 4 cinematic trailer”, although no further details are provided. His previous work includes contributions to last year’s Far Cry 4 trailer, The Elder Scrolls and Forza Motorsport.
Bethesda has yet to announce Fallout 4, but rumors persist and an announcement at E3 2015 is all but confirmed. Fallout 4 is said to be announced during Bethesda’s E3 2015 press conference on Sunday June 14. Previous rumors suggested that a 20-30 minute gameplay demo was to be unveiled at the end of the conference, but the cinematic trailer preparation might suggest that the gameplay footage might be shown behind closed doors, which will be certainly disappointing for Fallout fans, eagerly waiting to get a glimpse of the next iteration of the apocalyptic RPG.
Bethesda is also rumored to be revealing a teaser for Dishonored 2, with a possible announcement for the Dishonored Definitive Edition for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. Bethesda will likely present the first global reveal of id Software’s Doom.
E3 2015 is just over a month away taking place between June 16-18 at the Los Angeles Convention Center.
Capcom and Bandai Namco will also be having a few surprises at the event, and Microsoft will be revealing at least one new game from Rare, which could be possible a new banjo Kazooie title or even a new Battletoads game. Phil Spencer recently shared some information about E3 and Gamescom, and talked about a few other things as well.
Watch Dogs 2 and Mafia 3 are also rumored to be making an appearance at E3 2015 as well.
Square Enix will have big hitters like Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, which was introduced with a magnificent cinematic trailer, but little information has been revealed so far and no gameplay footage. Similarly Kingdom Hearts 3 had next to nothing shown so far, and especially after the switch to the Unreal Engine 4, fans have been eager to see the game in action. Final Fantasy XV will surely make an appearance, as well as the hugely anticipated Just Cause 3, which will get its first gameplay trailer quite soon.
Rise of the Tomb Raider is another huge title coming from Square Enix, but it is certain that Microsoft will have the title showcased in their own press conference, as it is one of their biggest exclusives of the year. It is quite possible that Square Enix will have a few surprise announcements as well, so we are certainly in for a treat, as E3 2015 is shaping up to be one very incredibly exciting event with many announcements coming from both Sony and Microsoft. Nintendo is returning to host a press conference after being absent for some time.
