Fallout 4 no-show at E3 2013 whispers

By Alan Ng - May 10, 2013

We have some potentially disappointing news to bring you now, especially for the millions of gamers who are dying to see a Fallout 4 announcement this Summer. Bethesda has just announced a new Wolfenstein game this week of course, but we now hear that Fallout 4 may not be ready to show next month at all.

It is no secret that Fallout 4 rumors and hype have skyrocketed in the last few weeks, especially with the confirmation that Bethesda has officially ceased development on The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. After the unveiling of The Evil Within by the publisher, many gamers had expected Fallout 4 to be next in line for the reveal treatment.

Instead though, Wolfenstein: The New Order is now on the way from Machine Games, leaving some to wonder whether Fallout 4 really is going to be ready for a 2013, or even early 2014 release. With that in mind, NoobFeed are claiming that Bethesda won’t be showing Fallout 4 at this year’s E3 2013 event.

They have apparently obtained a schedule of Bethesda’s participation at the event, revealing that only The Evil Within, Wolfenstein and The Elder Scrolls Online will be shown. They have also mentioned that out of these games, Wolfenstein: The New Order and The Elder Scrolls Online will be playable – suggesting that The Evil Within from Tango GameWorks isn’t ready in playable format just yet.

If this is indeed true, then should it considered a big blow that Fallout 4 won’t be at E3? Having said that, this could just be information related to Bethesda’s booth on the show floor, with all actual press conference appearances still a secret at this point. We still could see a Gabe Newell-style appearance from Bethesda at either Sony or Microsoft’s keynote, so we don’t think all Fallout 4 hope is lost just yet.

How bad do you want to see the game announced at E3? Are you happy to wait longer now, or does an announcement need to come this Summer to maintain your interest?
