No Fallout 4 at The Game Awards, Bethesda Says
Publisher's marketing executive claims the company is "not showing anything."
This Friday's inaugural The Game Awards 2014 promises at least a dozen "world premieres," but don't expect Fallout 4 or The Elder Scrolls 6 to be among them. Bethesda marketing executive Pete Hines wrote on Twitter on Wednesday that he's attending the Las Vegas show, but only to support the latest Wolfenstein.
I'm getting asked a lot about this week and what we're doing. Going to VGX to support MachineGames. That's it. Not showing anything.— Pete Hines (@DCDeacon) December 3, 2014
MachineGames is the developer behind Wolfenstein: The New Order, which has been nominated for a handful of awards at the show, including Best Shooter and Best Narrative.
Bethesda does have a history of announcing new projects at year-end award shows, as the company did just that in 2010 when it caught everyone by surprise by revealing The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim during the Video Game Awards.
While new Fallout and Elder Scrolls games have not been announced, they are more than likely in development. After all, the evidence for a Boston-set Fallout 4 is mounting, while Skyrim's 20 million copies sold near-enough guarantees a sequel.
The Game Awards 2014 begin December 5 at 6 PM Pacific / 9 PM Eastern / 2 AM UK. GameSpot will bring you all the news from the show, as well as a list of winners, as soon as they're announced.
