Kotaku reports that, hot on the heels of the recent confirmed hoax site established for Fallout 4, the actual game is under development.
Leaked voice scripts seem to establish that the game is Fallout 4, although it’s never explicitly named, and appears to be set in Boston, Massachusetts. The project currently has the codename “Institute”, which would tie-in with rumours that Bethesda has been scouting locations near MIT to draw on for inclusion in a future title.
Several characters are named in the scripts, although it’s likely at least some of them were invented just for the casting call. Bethesda declined to comment to Kotaku when asked about the leak, and have not confirmed that a new Fallout title is under development, although they did recently trademark the name Fallout 4 in Europe.
Take it with a grain of salt, but it certainly seems as if a new Fallout may be upon us in the not-too-distant future.
