Video gamers, especially those who are into the Fallout game series, have definitely been waiting and asking for the Fallout 4 release date. And the quick answer to that question is: The Fallout 4 Release Date, together with its development, has not yet been announced. Fallout 4 is actually just the third installment that Bethesda Softworks will release, since buying the film series from Interplay Entertainment. They previously released Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas.
The Release Dates for the previous versions of Fallout
The Fallout video game series is one of the most popular video game series of all time. Even though the release date of its newest installment, Fallout 4, is not yet known, it can theoretically be predicted. In order to do this, it is helpful to look at the chronological sequence of the release dates of the previous versions of this series. The following are the release dates and the corresponding developers of the installments in the Fallout Game Series that have been released in the past.
Release Date: 1997
Developed by Interplay Entertainment for PC (Windows)/Dos, Mac OS, and Cloud (OnLive).
Release Date: September 30, 1998
Developed by Black Isle Studios for PC (Windows), Mac OS, and Cloud (OnLive).
Van Buren (Fallout 3)
Van Buren, which was developed by Black Isle Studios, was the code name given to the cancelled version of Fallout 3. The game development was cancelled in 2003 when the budget cuts forced Interplay Entertainment (parent company) to stop the PC development team. The Fallout series property was then sold to Bethesda Softworks.
Release Date: October 2008 in North America, Europe, Australia, and United Kingdom; December 2008 in Japan
This unrelated version to the cancelled game Van Buren was developed by Bethesda Game Studios for PC (Windows), Playstation 3, and Xbox 360.
Fallout: New Vegas
Release Date: October 2010 in North America, Australia, and Europe; November 2010 in Japan.
Developed by Obsidian Entertainment and Bethesda Softworks for PC (Windows), Playstation 3, and Xbox 360.
Release Date: To Be Announced
When should be the Fallout 4 Release Date?
Based on the above information, the number of years between the release dates of Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas is 2. We would base our predictions on these 2 installments since these are the 2 games that have been released since Bethesda Softworks took over the development of the video game series. In addition to that, we can also see that both games were released during the month of October. Based on these facts, we should be able to predict that the Fallout 4 release date will be on October 2012. But there’s another very important fact that should be considered. Bethesda Softworks released the video game Dishonored in 2012, and will release The Elder Scrolls: Online in 2013. So based on all these facts, the Fallout 4 release date would be pushed back to somewhere in October 2013, or even in 2014.
Everything being said in here are only interpretations based on past releases. But as soon as the Fallout 4 release date is announced, we will update this site for you to be updated.
