Here we go again in the never ending game of swings and roundabouts that we’re playing in search of everything and anything we can possibly find relating to Fallout 4. This time the news came in the form of a “is this another hoax?” filing to the USPTO, that’s the United States Patent and Trademark Office.

The filing was for the Pip Boy device, a staple of the Fallout Universe that has come to represent the series in some way. This time however, unlike the Fallout: Shadow of Boston filing which I told you was fake, is actually a real filing on Bethesda’s part. Though don’t get your hopes up, it’s nothing particularly exciting.

Speaking by way of Twitter, Bethesda Softworks said, “Not a hoax. our filing. just protecting our trademark. also helps in dealing with infringement stuff.” So whether or not this is simply downplaying a move on the series, or just an honest filing is for you to decide. But hey, there are no breaks on this train.

    In all honesty this is a tease, there is no doubt in my mind that filing it now is just a to get a buzz going before the Game Awards. It doesn’t make sense to file it now, why not 4 years ago when the game was actually popular and fresh? I think what we’re seeing is a possible collectors edition item, or even just a companion app to go with the new game. Or if we’re really unlucky, just another item for them to throw up on their store.

  • Perhaps the filing is a move on Bethesda’s part to keep fans from losing hope that there will ever be a Fallout 4. What this means to me is that Fallout 4 is still yet a ways away.

    As long as it’s taken, Fallout 4, when and if it does happen, better be something a thousand times more mind-blowing than the last two games. I know that’s a tall order, but I expect nothing less…
