Gopher on youtube has released a video with a prediction of when Fallout 4 is going to be released.
His reasons are very solid:
- Games with unknown dates are defaulted to the 12th or 31st of a month, not the 23rd.
- The timing just right for the Holiday season.
- Although the 23rd isn’t a tuesday, when most games are released, 23rd October is an important date in Fallout lore. The date is the day the Great War started and is, as Gopher puts it, The Birth of the Apocalypse.
Gopher does in fact say that it’s not an official date released by the company but it is indicated by the pre-order release date. He cautions that since it is not officially stated by Bethesda that you shouldn’t guarantee that date to stay.
