‘Fallout 4’: Fans Petition Bethesda for Confirmation of Next Fallout Game

January 3, 2014 Updated: July 18, 2015

Fallout 4 should be confirmed by Bethesda Softworks, the game developer, said the creator of an online petition.

“We do not ask for much; just throw us a bone, tell us you’re working on it. If you’re thinking the same way that I do, please SIGN this petition. You can make a difference! It’s up to you if we wait another year to get some news OR we get Bethesda’s attention on this subject now. You can raise awareness by sharing this with your Facebook friends, by posting it on your wall, anywhere you can think of, really. The more we are, the more attention we will draw,” reads the petition on Change.org.

In mid-November, there was a widely circulated website called Survivor 2299 that turned out to be a very elaborate hoax.

About a month later, the game website Kotaku published a leaked script indicating that there was casting being done for the game.

“I believe it’s about time Bethesda gives us some hints on Fallout 4. After the Survivor hoax and the *intentionally* leaked Fallout 4 script on Kotaku, we NEED to know if Fallout 4 is being made and whether it will be set in Boston or not,” the petition reads.

The petition was created earlier this week and already more than 2,000 people signed it.

In the Kotaku report, it suggests that the game will be set in Boston and Massachusetts.

“Other documents describe a mission set in the Institute—Fallout’s post-apocalyptic version of MIT—and references to other Fallout locations that have been mentioned but never shown in other games, like the Commonwealth, which comprises what’s left of Massachusetts,” the report reads.

In the documents obtained by Kotaku, One of the characters is named Preston Garvey, but there was little information offered about him.

Another character is a DJ named Travis Miles and an engineer named Sturges who is described as a “a cross between Buddy Holly and Vin Diesel.”

The main character of the game also starts off in a cryogenic sleep chamber.
