In case you weren’t already excited about E3 this year, then get excited, because Fallout 4 was just leaked and will probably be announced within the next few weeks.
Well, Fallout 4 was leaked kind of, sort of, maybe, hopefully. As VideoGamer.com reports, a 3D artist working for Guillermo del Toro’s production company recently listed “Fallout 4 cinematic trailer” on his list of accomplishments.
That LinkedIn profile can be seen here. The guy describes himself as a “freelance 3D artist” living in the “greater Los Angeles area.” Ever since the leak, he’s protected his profile, so you can’t really see anything.
But VideoGamer.com was nice enough to get a screen cap:
As you can see, the artist was hired by California’s Mirada Studios between December 2014 and March 2014, during which time he created the Fallout 4 cinematic trailer. He doesn’t list any additional details, although his previous work includes The Elder Scrolls cinematic and trailers for Far Cry 4 and Forza Motorsport.
Bethesda Has Scheduled the First E3 Press Conference in Company History
We all knew Bethesda was going to announce something big at E3 this year. For the first time in company history, Bethesda had scheduled a press conference at E3. That press conference takes place on Sunday, June 14 and the internet hype train now fully believes Fallout 4 is being announced at that event.
Rumors state that a 20 to 30 minute gameplay demo is also being prepared for E3. So not only do we get an amazing cinematic trailer, but we also get to see real live gameplay.
Bethesda is also expected to reveal the new Doom game during the press conference. Will they have other games to show off as well? We just don’t know.
Bethesda Has Debuted Fallout Trailers at E3 Before
At E3 2008, Bethesda revealed the first gameplay demo for Fallout 3. That game was released three months later, in October 2008.
At E3 2010, Bethesda revealed a trailer for Fallout: New Vegas, which would also later be released in October 2010.
So given those trends, Fallout 4 will hopefully be announced at E3 2015 with a release date of October 2015.
