Todd Howard provided some comments in regards to several subjects surrounding the next video game from the “Fallout” series, which may be called “Fallout 4.” According to a report from Kotaku on Feb. 20, the game director admitted that his studio still does not know the exact time frame in which their next project will be announced.
We don’t [have a timeframe for our next game announcement but I think it’s gonna be a while.
Todd Howard also talked a little bit about the fan-made “Fallout 4” website that caused a stir within the fan base last year. One of the enthusiasts built a teaser domain for what many believed to be the next game in the open-world role-playing series. However, the website was eventually discovered to be a hoax.
The game director liked the alternate reality game contents from the fan-made domain, saying that it was a “testament” to how far their fans will go. He also revealed that the development team is often surprised by what the community comes up with. You can find some screens from “Fallout 3” in the slideshow to the left of the article and his statement below:
The ARG was very, very well done. It’s a testament to our fans. And they’re doing that stuff and making mods. The stuff they do, we often look at and go, ‘Well, why don’t we just do that? That’s really great.
Todd Howard is the game director behind “Fallout 3,” which came out in 2008 for the PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 platforms. He and his team at Bethesda Softworks are rumored to be working on the next “Fallout” title.
