Fallout 4: Time from announcement to release

By Daniel Chubb - May 12, 2013

Most gamers would be in their element this year thanks to some major changes in console hardware that will lead to more innovation for the console gamer, which the extra power is expected to deliver more in-depth gameplay and graphics. I’ve personally been waiting for this console leap since queuing up at the midnight launch for both PS3 and Xbox 360.

There’s no doubt we will see new games deliver a lot more on both the Next Xbox and PS4, which Sony already commented on the fact that they’re already working much closer with developers from the outset this generation. This is good news considering the early problems working with the PS3’s Cell processor.

Fallout 4: Time from announcement to release – Fallout 4 is one game that would be welcomed on next-gen and current consoles, although it recently met a leak revealing a miss at E3 2013. Bethesda Softworks would never want such information leaking so early in regard to their games at E3, so it didn’t surprised us to see the leak pulled pretty quickly.

We have seen mixed reactions from gamers following the possibility of no Fallout 4 announcement at E3. Some gamers said they’d be “really disappointed with Bethesda” if this happens, and others expect some Fallout 4 news at some point this year.

In our opinion, you will see an announcement for Fallout 4 after E3 at some point. This raises the question: how long will it be from Fallout 4’s announcement to the release date?


Some people think work is only just starting on Fallout 4 after development stopped on Skyrim, and some people even think that Elder Scrolls 6 could be the next game before Fallout 4. Skyrim’s announcement came around one year before the release date and development had been in progress for some time before this, so we wouldn’t expect much different with Fallout 4.

If you manage to see a Fallout 4 announcement after E3 2013, if the leak had been correct about an event no show, then we’re hoping to see a revealing in fall/winter with a launch date at the end of 2014.

When do you expect Fallout 4 to be announced and how long after would you expect to see the game release? You can join in a debate about who should develop Fallout 4 between Obsidian Entertainment and Bethesda Game Studios, which can be found via this article. We’d also love to know if you would prefer to purchase Fallout 4 on this generation or next-generation console hardware?
