Did we just get Fallout 5 confirmation? Fallout 4 voice actor Ryan Alosio might have let the cat out of the bag a little early this week when posting on Instagram:
I can’t get into any details at all right now, but it will be a very interesting journey moving forward.
Fallout 4 was the reintroduction to the wasteland we had all longed for and the game fast became one of the most highly acclaimed titles of 2015. The banner collected $750 million (£530m) in sales in the first 24 hours alone. Built on a new engine, Fallout 4 gave new life to a genre that spans all the way back to 1997. It even bagged my GOTY spot.
Despite the overwhelming success of Fallout 4, it would seem that Bethesda is far from resting on its laurels and could already be planning its next Fallout move. Alosio (Deacon/H2-22) further teased us with news that pertains to a Fallout 4 sequel being in production, or the very least in pre-production:
Internally there is movement gearing up for the pre-production of Fallout 5 ….(shhh), obviously I can’t get into any details at all right now but it will be a very interesting journey moving forward.
Clearly realizing his mistake, Alosio quickly removed his revealing post from Instagram and replaced it with an almost identical one that doesn’t mention anything to do with Bethesda or Fallout 5. But as we know oh so well, the Internet never forgets - thanks must be extended to Fraghero who snapped the original post.
Some say that this alone is proof that Bethesda is already working on Fallout 5 and I would have to conquer with that summation. Whether or not Alosio will still play a part in it is now up for debate.
'Fallout's' Curse Of The Voice Actor
This would not be the first time Bethesda has had Fallout details leaked by voice actors. Erik Dellums — that’s Three Dog in Fallout 3 — publicly revealed the news that related to Fallout 4’s existence when he took to Twitter to discuss the possibility of his character’s return.
Of course, this latest leak could always refer to another Bethesda project, not necessarily Fallout 5 — remember that the company outsourced the production of Fallout: New Vegas to developer Obsidian, which released between Fallout 3 and Skyrim? Although, Alosio does refer to Fallout 5 by name, so this is a long shot.
If the leak turns out to be true, what do you want from Fallout 5? Let's fill the comment section with something Bethesda can work with. You let them know what you want and I will do the rest.
