[Game -> Article] - More info on Company: Bethesda Softworks | More info on Company: Obsidian Entertainment | More info on Game: Fallout 4

I got this sent from Bethesda today. My response was, WTF?
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, Bethesda®'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 Entertainment® 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 (www.zenimax.com) company.
I'll try and get more news on this. It seems completely out of the blue to me, though I guess it puts Feargus Urquhart's acquisition of the original texture sets for the Fallout games in a different light. Did he get the Van Buren stuff as well?

If our server clock wasn't messed up, the front page time would match with the forum time!

Anyway it's all Exitium's fault. He told me it was real, and I foolishly believed him, but now people are saying it's a hoax?

Since the Bethesda guys ruined it all (you people don't know how to have fun!), I can say that I came up with the idea, Exitium wrote the text and Teatime touched it up. It was posted at RPG Codex simultaneously, too.

This is the best post about the FO franchise on the internet in a very long time. Well done to everyone involved in it (Ausir, Exitium and Teatime). Good job. I got a laugh out of it. icon_mrhappy
