Bethesda Teases Fallout 4 Announcement

When Bethesda announced it will be conducting a press conference at E3 2015 — the publisher’s first ever — it was safe to assume Fallout 4 would be unveiled. Now, Bethesda is all but confirming a new Fallout game with a countdown on fallout.bethsoft.com.
A tweet from Bethesda Studios revealed a Fallout-like “Please Stand By” test pattern and link to the website. On the site, the same test pattern is counting down to June 3.

Fallout 4 is one of the most anticipated titles in gaming. Fallout: New Vegas, the last entry in the franchise, released in 2010, and rumors of a new iteration have swirled ever since.
Bethesda is set to have its E3 2015 press conference on June 14 at 7 p.m. PT. Fallout and Doom are among the titles expected to be shown.
I’m not sure why Bethesda would announce its first ever E3 press conference only to take any shrouds of mystery away by unveiling Fallout 4 two weeks ahead of time, but observant gamers were expecting a new Fallout game regardless. Bethesda may be attempting to build hype for its Sunday presser.
