Fallout 4 Could Be At E3 2015 Now That ESO Has Been Re-announced

The Elder Scrolls Online, which was released for PC with a subscription-based system in April 2014, was originally going to be released for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in June 2014. The game has now been confirmed to be releasing on June 9th, 2015, under the new name; The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited, without a subscription service. However, for fans of the Fallout franchise, this might be the best news yet.

E3 will be taking place slightly later this year, between June 16-18, meaning Bethesda will have already released the game and will have an opportunity to both promote that release on a worldwide stage, AND possible announce Fallout 4. Games tend to go gold between 4-6 weeks before they are released, which would potentially give Bethesda around 6-7 weeks where they can put more resources on getting something ready for E3.

Fallout was one of my favourite franchises last generation, and I honestly cannot wait to see what Bethesda does with the game this generation. With the newer consoles more like PCs in terms of architecture, it’s more likely that there won’t be as many bugs in the game, and that it may release fairly quickly after an announcement, although I wouldn’t expect it until at least 2016.
