Rumor: Will Fallout 4 Be Announced At PAX South, Using Skyrim Engine?

We have some new information and rumors regarding Fallout 4. And this time, this is information from Bethesda themselves. These videos come from YouTuber MrMattyPlays, who you can subscribe to here.

What are the chances that the game will be announced at PAX South? As usual, Bethesda has dropped no indication one way or the other, so the answer is unclear. There was a rumor going around that PAX East would be the better place to make the announcement, but this is due to some fake leaks that have now been confirmed to be fake. Bethesda isn’t tied down to putting the new game in the same setting, or using a new setting.

Jason Schreier of Kotaku said that there should be word on when the game will actually arrive within the next few months. Given how closely Bethesda has kept that information close to their chest, to the point that its gotten to their community manager, Pete Hines, they are committed to completely surprising us when they do drop the announcement.

We now know, surprisingly enough, some actual information about the game. Bethesda themselves have stated that they will be using the Skyrim engine for Fallout 4. Of course, it won’t be exactly the same engine as that game, but an updated one, to accommodate for improvements in use of the engine. With the popularity of the PlayStation 4, it is almost certain that the game will be hitting that console, and following that, Xbox One and PC. I would not put it beyond Bethesda to bring the game to PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, or even Wii U, but of course this is less likely to happen.
