Finally, a visit to the Commonwealth.

In August last year, we learned that Bethesda had reportedly been scouting locations in Boston, including the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, as locations for the next Fallout game.
Now it looks like those rumours were correct, with leaked documents obtained by Kotaku showing a Bethesda game that makes references to “The Institute” (MIT) and “The Commonwealth”, the remains of Massachusetts, which has been mentioned in previous Fallout games, but never explored — until now, perhaps.
While the documents obtained by Kotaku don’t specifically mention Fallout by name, they open with “War. War never changes,” and make reference to dozens of other Fallout tropes, so it’s not too much of a stretch of the imagination. The casting call includes voice acting for a male or female player character, and mentions that they begin the game in a cryogenic chamber. Hrmm.
