    Van Buren Lives? NOTE: Old April Fools Joke

    It appears that Obsidian will be doing Fallout 4, with Bethesda publishing.
    March 31, 2005 (Rockville, MD) -- Bethesda Softworks® is pleased to announce that we have hired the talents of Obsidian Entertainment® to develop and design a Fallout® sequel. The return of this exceptional series is aimed at the core fans of Fallout®, because the company are confident that the game's appeal will extend to a much broader audience. "In this day when good role-playing games are rare, our releases of Fallout 3® and Fallout 4® promise to deliver what gamers have been yearning to play for ages", said Todd Howard, the game's Executive Producer. "While we wanted to make Fallout 3® our own game, we thought that the previous, cancelled attempt at it was a great idea, so we're finally giving the Obsidian® team a chance to finish it."

    Howard continued, "As fellow gamers and fans of the Fallout series, we are fortunate to have the talents of the original developers of Fallout and Fallout 2 creating a worthy sequel to Fallout and we are confident that Obsidian Entertainment will deliver a game that will be remembered for years to come."

    The sequel to Fallout 3, previously codenamed "Van Buren" during its development at Interplay is to resume development at Obsidian Entertainment under the currently given title of "Fallout 4", which may be subject to change. The game is to be produced by Bethesda Softworks LLC (www.bethsoft.com), a Zenimax Media company.
    What? Does this mean Van Buren will live?? If so, will they stick to the original storyline? If so, which version?
    May we live in interesting times.
    Seen at RPG Codex

    Edit: April Fools Joke!

    Don't ruin the fun


    Update: This appears to be a hoax, according to a new post on the Codex, by Kathode:

    Hoax. Weak one at that.

    Would've been funnier if you said we were making them do it KOTOR2 style. Slam dunk!

    Glad you like it, Josan, that's got to be one of the most unbelievable things I've ever read.

    That's what I get for reading Codex then DAC.

    I could have fallen for it if it hadn't specified they were finishing Van Buren. I would never believe that until it was on the screen in front of me.
    Game help can be found in my Fallout guides.

    Yeah, you have to be careful what you read and where.

    Although it was almost believable... FU snuggling up to someone else. I can see that.
