Today’s next rumour is about another beloved RPG franchise. An anonymous tipster who “may or may not work for MIT” has explained how Bethesda are researching and looking into the Boston area as the setting for the next Fallout game. “The rumors are true, Fallout 4 will take place in Boston. In case you haven’t heard, Bethesda has recently been scoping out and researching Boston. They also have a strong connection to MIT,” he told Reddit.
Another user has backed up his claim saying, “I’ve been hearing reports from people in the Boston area, where my fellow Fallout-obsessed brother lives, that Bethesda has been in the Boston area doing initial research for Fallout 4. It’s highly speculative, but the main rumors surround Bethesda’s connection to “The Institute”, or what we call the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, or M.I.T.”
So what we do have is highly speculative, but it does set a pretty solid foundation. What do you think of the choice of Boston?
