Bethesda Responds to Fallout 4 Reports

Following up on a Reuters report that suggested Bethesda could release Fallout 4 in 2011, marketing VP Pete Hines has labeled the speculation as "jumping to conclusions, and then some."

"An accurate headline would probably be, 'Fallout 4 before 2018,' since that's what he really said (10 years is too long)," Hines explained to Edge Online.

In the report, executive producer Todd Howard noted his belief that the ten-year wait between Fallout 2 and Fallout 3--due October 28 on PC, PS3, and Xbox 360--was too long, adding that three years between games was a good span.

However, Howard did not mention specifically mention Fallout 4, suggesting that his quote may have been taken out of context and may instead refer to Bethesda's next major game, which could be another entry in its acclaimed Elder Scrolls series.
