The desire for a Fallout 4 announcement is extremely evident, so much so that gamers have been debating the reasons for a lack of news over the past year without much satisfaction in the way of details. A few things have become clear after all of this debate, and that’s what fans want and the obvious timing for Bethesda to deliver Fallout 4 information along with a release date.
Some of the latest blog posts in regard to Fallout 4 claim that the upcoming game has been delayed, with titles along the lines of “Publisher delays announcement”. This couldn’t be further away from the truth, the fact is that Bethesda cannot delay what hasn’t already been given and looking at their track record you can see a pattern for releasing information.
Fallout 4 announcement close to release – Bethesda hates to offer false hype, so they wouldn’t want to give an announcement too far away from any potential release date and as such, will deliver details closer to launch rather than years before.
Most people cannot wait for Fallout 4, especially if they are part of an active PC community or want to see what’s possible on PS4 and Xbox One. The size of Fallout 4 will be one of the main reasons so much time is given to development, and why a lot of care is given to timing the announcement and not being hasty so disappointment comes when a real delay is given due to promising things too soon.
We previously looked at the timeline for Bethesda games, and it was evident that Fallout 4 was low down on that release timeline with other titles coming way before. Even if Fallout 4 is the game you really want, it is obvious you’re going to need a lot of patience, but will people wait until 2016 if that becomes the release year?
How much patience do you have for Fallout 4, also knowing when an announcement arrives the release date will be shortly after?
Personally, we look forward to seeing what Bethesda create with an undoubtedly large game that will take time. Hints of Fallout 4’s development have landed a few times in the past, so we know the game is coming and expecting it to be announced too far in advance is just silly knowing Bethesda’s track record. You can count on two things, a great game well worth waiting for and a release shorty after the announcement.
