Bethesda has been teasing an upcoming Fallout announcement, and the news just dropped. A new teaser trailer has revealed the next game in the post-apocalyptic series as Fallout 76. As the name suggests, the game revolves around Vault 76, a control vault that debuted in 2076 and is mentioned in both Fallout 3‘s Mothership Zeta add-on and in Fallout 4.
Few official details have been revealed outside of the teaser, so we might have to wait til E3 to dig into the meat of the game’s story, setting, and new gameplay mechanics. That said,
Jason Schreier of Kotaku has heard that it’s an “online game of some sort” developed by Bethesda’s Maryland and Austin teams. Many people quickly assumed this means it’s an MMO, but Schreier has not indicated that to be the case.
