Bethesda teases 2014 releases in holiday card, no Fallout 4?

The card pays tribute to Elder Scrolls Online, Wolfenstein, and Th Evil Within, but is there something we're missing?

by

Bethesda's VP of PR and marketing tweeted out the above holiday image today along with the message: "Happy Holidays from all of us at Bethesda. Gonna be a really fun 2014."

You can probably recognize the curled up Panzerhund from the upcoming Wolfenstein: The New Order, a dragon head wreath representing Elder Scrolls Online, and a creepy box for The Evil Within. But is there any thing in the picture hinting at Fallout 4 or some other unannounced Bethesda game?

We've been staring at the tree for trying to make something out of the ball placement, but it seems more likely that Fallout 4 isn't going to be released next year so it wouldn't have fit in with the picture. We've heard some outright lies about the next Fallout as well as rumors that the game will be set in Boston, but Bethesda has yet to confirm officially whether or not the game is actually in development.

Not really much of a teaser since its all games they've already announced, Bethesda almost never dishes out press hints till they're just about to announce. Chances are Fallout 4 will be announced February for a November/December release or March/April for a early 2015 release.

Theres an 8 on the Panzerhund but only two paws showing, divide 8 by 2 and you have 4


FALLOUT 4 CONFIRMED

Was anyone honestly expecting Fallout 4 to release next year? They just moved on from Skyrim last year.

God, I hope they make a new Fallout 4. I am a huge fan of the series. A next gen Fallout 4 in 1080p, 60 fps on the PS4/X1 will be like heaven. I can hardly wait and am filled with excitement. I hope this picture isn't a hoax like the website.

Maybe I don't understand the reference..
But isn't that a vault under the tree?

Two presents are wrapped under the tree so those can be 2 games that aren't announced yet but set to release next year. Also the bells could represent the song "Jingle, Jangle, Jingle" from fallout.

2014 had better see fallout 4. I really don't care about those other titles, especially ESO. Had a couple friends in the beta and they have nothing good to say about it. Not that I had much faith in yet another fantasy mmo. Just add co-op to whatever will follow Skyrim and I'll be content.

i think the xmas tree represents an xmas 2014 release for fallout 4!

I think it should be pointed out again that there are two wrapped presents under the tree. I would read into that more than anything else cryptic that may be here/being fabricated by your minds. Considering the box from TEW is partially wrapped, as if it was an opened gift/revealed title....yeah, just speculating, but it could be something

Ok. On the robotic dog, there is a number "8." There are two circles on the dogs head. And what do you get when you divide 8/2? 4! Yeah boyeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

It looks like it's just the games that they have announced. Not the one's in development, Bethesda studios are working on something we just don't know for sure whether that's Fallout 4.

Bethesda is milking this hype for Fallout 4 for all it's worth. If they wait too long the hype will dry up... C'MON BETHESDA ANNOUNCE THE DAMN GAME ALREADY!

@oneligasFallout 4 better come out!!!! Though I think at this point coming out 2014 is a lost cause :(.

I'm pretty sure they are developing it and if not, they're stupid considering the fact anytime Bethesda is mentioned, even if it has nothing to do with Fallout, invariabley you get the, "Where's Fallout?" comments. It's obviously a very wanted game.

If it releases in the run up to Christmas like skyrim did that's a 2 year gap

@starjay009 Not to burst your bubble but the picture is said to NOT be teasing Fallout. Didnt you read that? Apparently the pic has nothing to do with Fallout so why would it be a hoax?

@starjay009 I'm also quite excited. I loved modding NV and hope they give us a better GECK this time around

@shermenz Well its a safe. Which is kind of a vault. So yes. Maybe they are combining Fallout and Evil Within and outsmarting us!
