The lights are on
We're sorry to both lift and dash your hopes at the same time, Vault Dwellers. This tease is not for a new Fallout game. Today, Bethesda teased something new with a four-second Vine (Twitter's short movie service).
At first glance, the barbed wire and musical terms that flash through might lead the hopeful to believe that a new Fallout would be announced soon (especially since it had been recently hinted at by a Fallout 3 voice actor). Alas, a tweet from Bethesda vice president of public relations and marketing Pete Hines has us looking for other ideas.
One good suggestion comes from BioWare senior gameplay designer Manveer Heir who tweeted this,
The barbed wire certainly fits the Wolfenstein aesthetic, and the series would be a good fit for next generation hardware, marrying a known intellectual property with a franchise that can be safely rebooted or expanded upon. The good news is that even if this tease has nothing to do with Fallout, there is still hope that a new adventure in the post-apocalyptic wasteland might be in development. After all, Bethesda is a publisher as well as a developer. It stands to reason that they have multiple projects underway simultaneously.
What do you think Bethesda is hinting at? You can check out the Vine here.

Why can't they just tell us! the suspense is deathly
I NEED a new open world Bethesda game!!! Even though I'm still only 60% down with Skyrim. I need Fallout!! I'm not worried they'll deliver because they are one of the greatest studios on the planet!! Three Dog tells no lies either!
I've beaten Fallout 3 and New Vegas so many times there getting old I want Fallout 4
I could see another wolfenstein that wouldn't be too bad
I good with a Wolfenstein but much better with a Fallout 4!
wooh! no Ip
It's a new Fallout.
awww come on fallout 4 lets go Bethesda.
is hasn't made a good game since DOOM 2, and Bethesda hasn't made a good game since Bloodmoon. What a great team they make.
How about a Persona 3/4 style Prison game where you have to build the master shank while doing your chosen daily activities around the jail yard and avoiding others at night...
I rather have Fallout 4. Depressing news to read for my first article I've for the day.
i was just saying lastnight they most likley are making a fallout 4 then i read this , damn you wolfenstein
Really wanted a new Fallout to be leaked. Guess I will stand in line with the rest of the fans and wait, sadly.
I knew they wouldn't make another Elder Scrolls game, and I was hoping it would be a new ip over Fallout 4 but I was not expecting Wolfenstein. I would have been happier with Fallout 4, I never was a big Wolfentein fan but maybe this one will change it. Assuming it is Wolfenstein of course.
