According to a new filing by Bethesda Softorks (thanks Eurogamer), the company behind recent Fallout and Elder Scrolls titles has claimed a trademark for "an on-going television program set in a post-nuclear apocalyptic world." Considering the only post-nuclear apocalyptic world is their Fallout RPG series, it is more than likely referring to a possible Fallout TV show.
The news of a possible Fallout TV show is coincidental for some, with Eurogamer speculating that the recent tweets by DJ Three Dog actor Erik Todd Dellums could have been connected. The recent tweet stated that "To all my #Fallout3 and #ThreeDog fans: There may be more of the Dog coming! Fingers crossed!" with many speculating it could be pointing to a new title in the RPG series, however with the discovery of this trademark it may have simply been talking about the TV show. It isn't known yet whether the TV show will follow closely to Bethesda's Fallout 3 title, or be a completely new setting.
I'm betting web series, like the one done for Halo 4
But secretly hoping it's going to be an HBO series :P
fark, I just wanted more fallout to play, not watch :(
Hopefully will be used as a prelude to Fallout 4 fingers crossed
Guys, think about it. If the TV show for Fallout is really going to air on television, it could mean that EVERY rumor so far could be for that and not Fallout 4. Also, this puts my thinking up a bit. The "teaser" trailer on youtube where Fallout 4 was going to be in San Francisco, I don't know if it was a dream or not but I swear it said it was posted by Bethesda Softworks/Game Studios (I can't remember which). But if it is going to take place there, it would be following New Vegas instead of Fallout 3. To what one of the developers responded,"-But the Mohave was a fun place to explore, wasn't it?" So right now, Fallout 4 could very well be a massive surprise to everyone. Let's all hope it comes soon, though! :)
