It really didn’t make sense why a game years old would get the trailer uploaded again to the official Bethesda Softworks YouTube, so this only added weight to Fallout 4 rumors and some news arriving either at E3 or shortly after.
We looked at this possibility and some new items on the official store a couple of days ago, although since that article we have seen a tweet published directly from Bethesda.
The tweet shown in the image above reveals exactly why the Fallout 3 trailer had been uploaded again to YouTube, which as you can see had to do with the update of their YouTube page. When moving to the new YouTube design they noticed the video had been removed, so the quickest way to get it back had been to upload it again.
Some gamers wondered why the comments were disabled, which also made some people think this had been Bethesda’s way to create hype for Fallout 4. While it did seem strange, it wouldn’t make sense to promote Fallout 4 in this way unless they added hidden easter eggs in the new trailer, which as we now know never happened.
When do you expect Fallout 4 to be announced? The majority of fans agree that the game will miss E3, this is supported by a recent leak, but we’d expect Fallout 4 details to arrive later in the year with a release date in 2014. It will be interesting to see how Bethesda handles launching their games with the PS4 and Xbox 720 about to launch, and the current consoles expected to stay popular for many years to come.
