Well, it looks like anyone who was hoping to hear something about a potential Fallout 4 announcement during the upcoming Game Awards should stop holding their breath, as the team at Bethesda Softworks has announced they will not be making any announcements.
As we announced last month, The Game Awards 2014 presentation will take place this Friday, Dec. 5, at 9 p.m. ET. You’ll be able to watch it on various streaming services, assuming you aren’t planning on attending the Los Vegas event before hightailing it over to The PlayStation Experience, which is also taking place this weekend in the City of Sin.
You can also check out this recent post to see who the nominees are for this year’s awards, which is only half of the reason to actually watch the show. The other half belongs entirely to big game announcements. Loads of developers will be on hand for the event and, as in years past, several will be announcing new projects or giving updates on current titles throughout the show. Think of it as a mini E3 press conference peppered throughout the show.
While we’re sure to get plenty of oohs and ahs out of the evening’s proceedings, one highly anticipated title will not be making an appearance. Bethesda Softworks has taken to Twitter to set the record straight, explaining that they will not be making any announcements during The Game Show. Many had speculated that the studio’s appearance at the event meant that they would be announcing, say, Fallout 4 during the event, but one to-the-point Tweet crushes all of those hopes in one go.
“PSA—We’re not showing anything at the Game awards,” reads the Tweet. “We’ll be there to support @MachineGames.”
For those who may have forgotten already, Machine Games are the folks behind the much-loved FPS, Wolfenstein: The New Order, which was published by Bethesda. Wolfenstein just so happens to be up for an award or two, so the Bethesda folks are apparently going to make up their cheering section.
So, there you have it. No crazy announcements coming from Bethesda at this point, so all of the rumors and jibba-jabba can just die down…Then again, maybe that’s what they want us to think. Sort of a reverse psychology thing, yeah? They tell us they aren’t announcing anything, we lower our guard (and expectations), then blam-o, “Check out mother-flipping Fallout 4, fools!”
Okay, so that scenario of mine is highly unlikely, but a guy can dream, right?
