Claims have appeared on Reddit, prompting rumours that the next entry in the post apocalyptic series from Bethesda will be set in Boston with a focus on M.I.T aka Massachusetts Institute of Technology. From the post, it would appear that the possibility of Fallout 4 being set in the area is rife among the small community surrounding the prestigious school, with some other users claiming that they have also heard the rumours and that they have enough viability to warrant the attention. You can check out the original post below.
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..
M.I.T., although in populated Cambridge and just across the river from Boston proper, still has a small-town feel when it comes to the way news propagates through the community. It is students and staff at M.I.T. that seem to be the ones talking the most about it, and they would be in a position to know. I wouldn’t be surprised, at all, if the rumors prove to be true in coming weeks.
Just thought I’d share! I’m not confirming anything, but all signs point to yes.
Even if the rumours do hold some water, don’t get too excited just yet as an official announcement, let alone progress on the game, is still likely to be months away just yet. What do you think, sound truth? Or just an expectant community feeding the rumour mill? Stay tuned to find out and let us know your thoughts below.
