Update: As expected, this memo is FAKE.
Zenimax Media is taking necessary precautions to stop its employees to talk about the future projects its flagship studios are working on, especially Fallout 4 and Elder Scrolls VI.
In an internal memo which somehow found its way online, Zenimax has prohibited its employees to talk about or reference any of these terms:
- Fallout 4
- Fallout: Nuka World
- Boston Project
- Elder Scrolls
- Elder Scrolls VI
- Greenheart Project
Below is the Leaked Internal Memo:
If you remember last year’s leak, Fallout 4 is presumably set in Boston.
If we go through the list of prohibited terms, Greenheart Project may well be the next Elder Scrolls game being developed by Bethesda.
The reason behind prohibiting employees to talk about these projects is simple, Zenimax doesn’t want ‘unreleased work being exposed at any early stage’.
Although this memo may as well be another false alarm just like Survivor 2299 but if Bethesda is indeed not going to talk about these games at E3, which seems to be the case if you believe Pete Hines, it shouldn’t be a surprise if we do not hear about Fallout 4 or next Elder Scrolls game this year.
@iTz_Reaper 1) I don’t reallly pre-announce our announcements. 2) BGS will not be talking about its next game for a long time.

We have contacted Bethesda for comment. We will update if we get anything on that!
