The development of Fallout 4 is almost complete, Bethesda has revealed.
Speaking to the folks at GamesRadar, Bethesda's VP of PR and Marketing Pete Hines said that the game, which was announced a week prior to E3 this year, is "pretty close to being done."
Hines said that the amount of time needed to generate excitement for the game was ample enough for the studio given the pedigree of the franchise.
"If we didn’t feel like that was enough time to generate the excitement that we expected and the interest that we wanted, then we would have announced it earlier," he said. "So part of it is because we felt like it was a big enough title that we could get away with it."
Fallout 4 is the fifth main title in the on-going Fallout series (including Fallout: New Vegas and not including spinoffs) of post-apocalyptic role-playing games and the second game in the series to be developed directly by Bethesda after Fallout 3. Taking place 200 years after the bombs dropped in 2077, players take on the role of the sole survivor of Vault 111 who emerges into the post-apocalyptic wastelands of Boston.
It's expected to be released on November 10, 2015 for the PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
