The Internet exploded in speculation as it turned out that a few days ago, Bethesda filed for a Fallout 4 trademark with the Office for the Harmonization of the Internal Market through their usual legal firm, DLA Piper.

Currently polling second in Australia's federal election (first in the Gold Coast), this feral may one day be your Bogan King.

The chance of Chris Avellone involved in this is zero right? Better wait for the GOTY then.

I'm not expecting them to unveil it yet but when they do, I hope it's not a cross-gen title.

Good. Now stupid people who don't realise Bethesda is only publishing the new Wolfenstein will stop raging in every article/video about them not making Fallout 4.

Wait so that domain registration a few days turned out to be real, or this is just a big coincidence?

If Wasteland 2 wasn't due in the not-too-distant future, I'd say that this was my most anticipated post-apocalyptic RPG. Sorry, Bethsoft, FO4 will have to settle for second.

They also just announced a new line of bobble head figures for their online store. Certainly seems like they are gearing for a VGA teaser video. :D

CGI slow panning scene of post apocalyptic desolation set to music of a by gone era that fades to black as the title fades in... meh
Not a question of what, but when: before or after the CGI Mass Effect 4 and Deus Ex 4 trailers?

With the OHIM Half-Life 3 debacle, I'm not gonna get excited just yet, it could be another hoax/trolling. There's really no reason for Bethesda to trademark "Fallout 4" as they already have the Fallout trademark.
