Fans of the Fallout series, pay attention.  A recent tweet by voice actor Erik Todd Dellums, known for his radio hosting in-game character, “Three Dog,” suggests that a new Fallout game is in the works.

Dellums later responded to another Twitter user indicating that he was given permission to tweet about a possible new Fallout game.

The last major game in the Fallout series, New Vegas, was released in late 2010 to generally positive reviews.  A new major installment to the Fallout franchise would certainly be welcomed by those who have waited over two years since the release of New Vegas.

A couple months ago we also reported on a rumor that originated on Reddit by a user who had some “inside” information about the next installment of Fallout. The user reported that the game would be taking place in Boston, Massachusetts. You can see the original post for the rumor here.

  1. Oh they better. Because now I&#039m psyched! I have over 300 hours in Fallout 3 and still miss it.

    As for the setting, anywhere, as long as we have the amazing richness of Fallout 3 and not that empty world of New Vegas. No more texts found in random computers, no more holotapes, only a handful of interesting stories in the world. New Vegas just failed to engage me like Fallout 3 did. It did some things right, but was missing some much needed soul.

    Both games had some nice variations in their settings. From caves to part including water to hidden tree societies. You name it. I want to see more of such majestic places than just shades of grey and brown and dessert. I know it&#039s the kind of environment that makes sense given the world it is in, but both these games managed to slip very peculiar and intriguing places and people and stories in this seemingly boring place.

    I will be looking forward to this anyway and more Three Dog is something I am very happy about.

    1. I agree with you — the richness of atmosphere within Fallout 3 was hugely superior to that of New Vegas. I did like all of the faction warfare that took place in New Vegas, though, and perhaps that is something that could be incorporated well into the new setting.

      I think I personally enjoyed Fallout 3 more than New Vegas, though, because the Washington, DC setting gave the ability to explore great landmarks and provided Bethesda with the ability to weave a unique narrative into an already existing place.

  3. Then were all in agreement, Fallout 3 is amazing. (I still play it) and New Vegas. The environment character’s and buildings of Fallout 3, is what make it so compelling. Exploring a world that is shattered, and believable, thriving settlements in a destroyed and desperate place is a testament to the human spirit. And Washington DC, in my opinion. Is what put Fallout 3 head and shoulders above New Vegas, in my opinion. My absolute favorite feature, of any game. Is in New Vegas however……. Hardcore Mode.

    1. Yes! Hardcore mode was a great feature that was added to New Vegas. My thoughts would be that it received enough attention to hopefully merit its inclusion in the sequel. And I agree that the D.C. setting made Fallout 3 iconic — the landscape was recognizable but foreign at the same time.

  4. Love, love, LOVE! the Fallout universe. One of the only series that I play again and again. Playing through tactics again, and have probably close to a thousand hours (across different characters) in Fallout 3 alone. Case in point, I&#039m looking at the Fallout 3 pause screen as I write this. Yeah New Vegas was a little flat, but the DLC is amazing and hardcore mode was a welcome addition; made it feel more like Fallout 1& 2, but the atmosphere in Fallout 3 is outstanding, I just want to be there all the time.

    So am I the only one that would like a (official, not a wonky mod) vehicle (like FO2)? Maybe an ATV or dirt bike.

    If this is real it can&#039t come soon enough.
