Bethesda has released various teasers across social media regarding something to do with the ever-popular ‘Fallout’ series which has caused a massive stir across the gaming world.

First launched in 1997, the ‘Fallout’ series has gained a massive amount of critical acclaim for the numerous titles and installments released over a 20-year period across a variety of platforms and consoles.

With the most recent title, Fallout 4, being released in 2015, fans of the storied franchise have questioned when the next installation will be released, however, no concrete information has been provided by the developer.

Although, on May 29th, Bethesda released a number of cryptic posts on social media with the classic ‘Please Stand By’ Fallout tagline, which has sent the community into a frenzy regarding what could be coming in the future.

It did not stop there, with Bethesda going live on Twitch which featured the Fallout ‘Vault Boy’ figurine in front of a television with the same ‘Please Stand By’ tag, yet no new information has been released at the time of writing.

While some have speculated that a new game could potentially be announced prior or during the E3 gaming expo, others believe that a ‘Fallout 3’ remaster could be in the works, especially with the title’s 10-year anniversary set for October of 2018.

We will continue to update the story as more information is made available.

Call of Duty 2021 leaks hint at new Modern Warfare follow up

Before Black Ops Cold War arrives, we may already have our first hint of next year’s Call of Duty setting as a prominent leaker has teased a new Modern Warfare sequel.

While the Call of Duty franchise has 17 mainline entries covering a wide array of timelines, two names stand out as the most iconic. Both the Black Ops series and the Modern Warfare series have seen the most iterations over the years. 

Treyarch has already released four titles in the Black Ops series with Cold War just weeks away. Meanwhile, Infinity Ward has four entries in the Modern Warfare series, the original trilogy along with 2019’s reboot. Now, it seems as though a fifth could also be on the way with Infinity Ward at the helm.

Sledgehammer Games and Raven Software will reportedly be taking a back seat. Instead of the typical three-year development cycle, Infinity Ward has just two-years to work with. We’re still 12 months off from 2021’s mystery release, but we may already have our first details on next year’s title.

Could Price’s story continue in 2021’s Call of Duty?

“It’s looking like CoD for 2021 is another Modern Warfare title of some kind,” prominent leaker Tom Henderson revealed. Not a whole lot is known beyond that key detail, though the setting for the next release appears to be locked in. 

“Understandably not a lot of information as of yet, but it’s a modern-day setting,” he confirmed. Given Modern Warfare’s hard reboot with 2019’s release, could a new sequel be the next step? This would essentially bypass the original Modern Warfare 2 from 2009 if Activision opts for another identical title.

To avoid even more confusion, there’s a good chance the name is a little different, similar to how Black Ops added Cold War to the title for 2020’s drop, despite it being a direct follow up to Black Ops 1. So expect to see Modern Warfare: ‘something something’ as the likely 2021 title.

This could see a direct continuation from where 2019’s game left off. John Price is looking to assemble a team of classic characters to put a stop to Russian terrorist Victor Zakhaev. If Warzone’s ongoing storyline doesn’t beat the single-player campaign to the punch, this could be our objective in 2021’s release.

While this aspect is purely speculation, the leaker also considered the original Modern Warfare 2 being bundled in. No different from how Infinity Warfare launched with Modern Warfare remastered in 2016.

We’re still months away from any official information on the 2021 title, so take this with a grain of salt for now. Black Ops Cold War is the focus for Activision. Anything regarding next year’s game will be kept under wraps for quite some time yet.
