Fallout 4’s development cycle should be under the command of the mighty Gaben.
So the internet. That’s a wacky place right? Full of some colourful characters, needless to say some less savoury than others. But nearly everyone has something to say on the internet, it’s why we flock to forums and social media sites in such numbers and with such devotion that it has literally killed people. So when you apply that mindset to the gaming community, a community which is already devoted to its chosen pass time, you would expect some serious outcry on social media platforms if Bethesda were to announce that their next game wasn’t Fallout 4, right?
Well, surprisingly not. Granted, there is huge demand for Fallout 4. The masses want it, make no mistake. But despite this, no one seems to be particularly bothered about the lack of Fallout 4 in the foreseeable future. Sure, fans are a little tired of waiting and being drop fed the smallest nuggets of information. But it seems like people may well be ready to throw in the towel and leave it to the fates.
Similar to Half Life 3, no one knows much about Fallout 4 and it’s now become a joke amongst peers. With gamers saying they could wait indefinitely at this point given the vast array of games available across multiple generations of gaming platforms, to gamers quoting the good old “Fallout 4 or Riot” statement, there is still a clear demand but a waning enthusiasm.
So how would you react to Bethesda announcing that the next big thing isn’t Fallout 4?
Me? I couldn’t really care less. Sure it would be nice to have it, but I won’t miss it if it never comes to light.
