Yesterday, “Fallout 3” voice actor, Todd Dellums, who is best known for playing the outspoken radio DJ Three Dog in the post-apocalyptic world, set the internet ablaze with speculation with a tweet that hinted at the development of Bethesda’s long awaited “Fallout 4”. “To all my #Fallout3 and #ThreeDog fans: There may be more of the Dog coming! Fingers crossed!” Dellums’ tweet announced. The voice actor followed up by explaining that he was given permission to release the teaser, which only served to fuel the rumor mill even more.
According to IGN, there had been initial rumors that the game would be set in Boston as Bethesda’s own were found traipsing around Cambridge. While a dilapidated Boston may not be a huge step from the post-apocalyptic D.C., the city’s proximity to the coast could bring about some water-based missions which, in turn, could easily showcase some freakish water monstrosities.
Of course, everything from here on out will be speculation, but Dellums carefully spoken words certainly left little room for anything other than a looming “Fallout 4” announcement. Whether or not Bethesda’s next installment in the “Fallout” series will be released for the current or next generation is a discussion that is sure to arise very soon; but regardless of generation, one would hope that the developer has learned from its follies between the top selling “Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim” and Sony’s PlayStation 3 console.
