As another E3 approaches, hopes rise anew for Fallout 4. With Bethesda hosting their first ever E3 press conference this year, chances are high they have something exciting to show us and, if a LinkedIn profile found by VideoGamer is to be believed, Fallout may be top of the list.
The profile in question belongs to a freelance 3D artist who has previously worked on Far Cry 3 and Elder Scrolls cinematics. He also worked on Forza 5. At the top of his CV is a listing for “Fallout 4 cinematic trailer”, which he allegedly spent four months working on at Mirada Studios. This gig ended in March, which seems perfectly timed for a reveal at E3 next month. If not before.
That’s assuming any of this is true, of course. Anyone can create a LinkedIn profile saying anything. I have one saying I’m an Olympic gold medalist archer SLASH assassin, which I update on rainy days. Doesn't mean all of that is to be believed. We've seen hoaxes before too.
But let’s be honest here, we’ll probably be seeing Fallout 4 pretty soon. Besides it being way overdue (has it really been seven years since Fallout 3 was released?), this isn’t the first rumour of its imminent emergence we’ve heard this year. But we won’t know for sure until E3, so until then it’s best to keep those fingers crossed.
