A new Fallout game placeholder spotted on Amazon suggests that Bethesda Softworks is planning to release Fallout 5 or Fallout 3 remaster in 2019. The listing comes with a Fallout styled countdown trailer confirming that it’s something related to the series.
Wario64 is the finder of this listing who previously predicted the announcement of Far Cry 5 New Dawn. This mysterious game is scheduled to release on PC, PS4, and Xbox One with a standard, deluxe, and a collector’s edition. It’s now available for pre-order and the mentioned release date is December 31, 2019. Price of all the editions is $59 which will obviously change once it gets officially announced.
It looks like Bethesda is getting things back together after the terrible launch of Fallout 76. However, Fallout 5 seems to be very unlikely because Fallout 76 launched a few months back. The studio is also reported to be busy working with Starfield and The Elder Scrolls 6.
There are also speculations that it’s a Fallout 3, Fallout New Vegas remaster or both because there’s a collector’s edition. A remastered version of Fallout 3 or Fallout New Vegas for the current generation of consoles has been requested by many so it will be definitely received well by the fans of the series. It can be a way for Bethesda to bring fans back by diverting their attention away from the disaster that is Fallout 76.
No matter what, it’s good to know that Bethesda is moving on and working on other games in the series.
Personally, I believe that it’s a good move because the first online-only Fallout game turned out to be a disaster for Bethesda. Be it game-size updates, sudden bans, microtransactions, bugs, or nuke codes issues, Fallout 76 has left been a major disappointment.
The latest blunder by Bethesda is the introduction of cosmetics called “unstoppable costumes” which gives the players an advantage in the game. By purchasing these new costumes, your party can gain +15 maximum health for a limited time.
Moreover, player bans are occurring without any reason in the game and a player with 900+ hours playtime was recently banned for having too much ammo.
One issue after the other caused sales to plummet and recently, Fallout 76 was being sold for just $5 in Poland with a pair of PS4 thumbsticks.
