Before we dig into all the clues and rather unorthodox clues, let me admit if this is true it’s one hell of a way to tease a new game. So here goes, a rather uncanny website with the domain thesurvivor2299.com was spotted recently by Reddit users and there’s a lot that it (apparently) tells.
According to IncGamer the domain is registered to ZeniMax who are the publishers of Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas. The script of the website also contains evidences suggesting towards the rumor, for instance the words fallout.js – this was revealed by a Reddit user.
Now Fallout 3 was based in late twenty-third century, 2270s to be exact and the figure 2299 in the website could mean Fallout 4 as a sequel set around 15 to 20 years ahead of the time when Fallout 3 ended.
The most intriguing part about the website is that it plays beeps on infinite loop in the background which a genius folk at Reddit identified as a Morse code. Upon decoding the code reads the date 11.12.13.
If it was based on the American calendar, it would have meant November 12 but that is past, so assuming it is the European calendar it reads December 11. That is around the time when Spike Video Game Awards are held which probably will bring the official announcement.
Also, the countdown timer on the website is counting down to roughly 27 days from now and that again would be round the same time decoded by the Reddit user.
So what do you think? Could this be what everyone is thinking it is?
