Fallout 4 – Multiple Retailers Including Bethesda’s Store Point to a 2015 Release Date
Bethesda officially announced Fallout 4 today for the PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, with a beautiful reveal trailer showcasing the new Boston setting.
Fallout 4 might be releasing in 2015
Several retailers have been listing the game with a ship date of "TBA 2015", including Bethesda's own store, during both when viewing the item and when added to your cart.
The store has been updated with a "TBA", removing the 2015 from the date. Amazon and Gamestop have the game listed for December 31st 2015, which is a common placeholder date for unknown dates. EB Games Australia though, sent out the following image, promoting the game after its announcement.
Bethesda will reveal more about Fallout 4 during their E3 2015 press conference later this month, where a rumored 20 minute gameplay trailer is said to be shown.
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.
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.
