It’s no big secret that Bethesda Games Studios takes its time when creating new games. The studio’s last major release came all the way back in 2011 with The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim though for fans of Bethesda’s other big franchise, Fallout, the wait has been even longer.
Fallout 4 seems to be the big secret that everyone knows about these days. With E3 2015 quickly approaching, fans are expecting Bethesda to announce the next entry in the incredibly popular post-apocalyptic franchise during its first ever press conference. As the company continues to remain quiet on the topic, more and more rumors and leaks have begun to surface which threaten to spoil Bethesda’s seemingly big surprise. This latest rumor may be the final straw.
According to reports, a new cinematic trailer is being readied for E3 and is set to reveal Fallout 4 to the masses. While that in itself isn’t unique, the interesting part comes from the fact that the trailer in question looks to have been created by none other than Guillermo del Toro’s production company, Mirada Studios. The studio typically offers it’s services to all sorts of clients in entertainment (not just the gaming industry) in creating trailers, marketing materials, and other forms of media. Mirada was formed in 2010 and has previously worked with a number of big companies like Nintendo, Disney, Amazon, and helped work on the film Pacific Rim.
News on this came to light after a contract worker for Mirada Studios posted the information to their LinkedIn profile page. The blurb lists the work on the Fallout 4 cinematic trailer from December 2014 to March 2015. While no further details are divulged on the page in regards to Fallout, this person has worked on trailers for other top franchises such as Forza Motorsport, Far Cry 4, and The Elder Scrolls series.
Considering E3 2015 is a month away, it’s not a surprise that these new rumors are starting to circulate. With Fallout 4 being a highly anticipated title, it’s certainly been in the spotlight lately with a number of supposed leaks and rumors coming out. Most recently, a German magazine reported that the title would be shown to journalists behind closed doors in a 20-30 minute demo. While nothing further has released to substantiate the claim, a closed door demo would no doubt disappoint fans who have been waiting quite a while to see the game in action.
As Bethesda typically uses E3 to reveal its major titles for the first time, such as the company did back in 2008 with Fallout 3, fans are hoping that the publisher is lining up a similar reveal this year. With its own press conference locked and loaded, expectations are through the roof.
What do you guys think, does this news cement Fallout 4 being at the show this year? Let us know below.
