    Retailers are known to have occasional oddities; listing incorrect release dates, or even sometimes posting pages for games that don’t exist. However, a new listing for a game on Amazon seems to be particularly interesting. Placeholder E01, T03, and S02 have all gone live on Amazon US, with the minimal details consisting of it being a full priced retail game, and being published by Bethesda. There’s also a countdown video, using the same style from the Fallout series. Nothing has been revealed, but the teaser seems to imply that Bethesda has something up its sleeve, or that Amazon has made an incredibly weird and specific mistake. Initially, all forms of the game could be pre-ordered, but Amazon now claims that there is no more stock left.

    Update: Only one version of the placeholder exists, now. Linked here.

    Update 2: Amazon has removed all listings.

    That placeholder with the Amazon smile looks suspiciously similar to tempy.
    Lawsuit coming...

    It's the US copyright law, but it works similarly in other countries as well. The moment something, like art, is produced, it's copyrighted. I think this one is a stretch however.

    Probably not a new fallout game, so my guess is a remaster of Fallout 3 or New Vegas

    If they are going to remake an old Fallout game they could at least have added Switch to the platforms list, meeeeeeeh.

    Now every placeholder except E02 has been taken down (Xbone Deluxe Edition). Here is a link to E02.

    Man! A lot of these games come on New Years.

    Anyways, I'd choke if it was another fallout game because that..would..be..fuck.

    Maybe it's Fallout 76 GOTY edition. :rofl2:

    Seriously though, I can't think of anything Fallout-themed they'd be releasing so soon. I'd say it's Rage 2 if that didn't already have a listing, but who knows.

    Each placeholder also has a 13 second video with a countdown from 10 to 0. Has a Fallout vice.

    I don't think they'd be dumb enough to release anything Fallout related, due to a shit ton of fans being sour on Fallout at the moment. But hey, who knows? :P

    As for Fallout remasters, so will PC players get it free, like they got Skyrim remastered free? :D
