Fallout 5 has not been announced but there is rumors and chatter that a different studio under MS or Bethesda themselves working on a possible Fallout 5 game.

  • F5 I won’t hold my breath.
  • F4 Remastered…why? F4 is certainly beautiful as is! Will people who have played the hell out of F4, pay full price for a remastered game, with the same content?
  • Fallout Shelter a hit? Hmm, I don’t dispute this, but I played that for a while causally until it got boring. There is no way FS can compete with any of the full fledged Fallout games.
  • Watching this video, I realized just how spoiled I am with my one shot sniper rifle. ;)

TL;DR
Chicago
New York
San Francisco

The YTer postulates that Bethesda leaves easter eggs of future locations in prior games, i.e., Fallout 3 mentioning the railroad, synths and Boston.

Its been reported that Fallout 4's original location was NY, and so the work required will be a bit less, I like the idea of Chicago, and there's a lot of references in prior games. As for SF, I'm not thinking its likely, nor am I excited about it.


I realized just how spoiled I am with my one shot sniper rifle.
That's kind of what I miss in Fallout 76 but Bethesda balances the game so we don't one shot everything.

I wonder if they'll go off script and offer a Europe location, say London?

i doubt people will pay anything much for a remastered F4. if they built one more DLC and upgraded the game a bit they could charge €20 for a directors cut like Ghosts of Tsushima.


However, a remastered F3 or FNV i think would fly off the shelves. I am playing FNV again for the first time in years, mainly due to someone posting about Frontier. Ive installed Frontier but havent reached it yet.

Id forgotten how good FNV is. Graphically and gameplay its still a step above Outer Worlds, and i loved Outer Worlds. If it was a brand new game out now for PS4 it would be getting 90% reviews. Since it wasnt out for PS4 i think there's a generation of players who havent played it and would buy it full price.

As long as FO5 is standalone (like FO4) and not MMORPG-like, I'm game. Also, keeping the settlement mechanic alive.
Fallout 76 is projected to be going for the next 3 to 5 years, and its their main online game - to that point I think it will be stand alone.

I don’t know how most of you feel, but I’m thinking it will be hard to top the F4 main quest story.
The storyline was top notch, but the game lacked true RPG features. No real consequences to one's decisions, no real karma engine to add or subtract your reputation. I'd like to see this fleshed out a bit more. I mean working for the Railroad should have decreased my reputation for the Institute, or the BOS, and vice versa.

If they had known about it. ;) However I admit to dragging Paladin Dance into Railroad HQ, and Deacon onto the Prydwen and not a peep being said about it by anyone. :D And I have 3 companions in love with me who don’t have any jelously issues when I swap them out. Although Cait will suggest to Piper, a theesome and Piper says not a chance. ;)
