Given the famed secrecy of Bethesda Game Studios - Todd Howard refuses to even spill Elder Scrolls news to his family - pretty much anything could be on the cards.

It is unknown what Fallout game Bethesda could be teasing.
For those who don't know, Fallout is one of the best-selling and best-loved video game franchises of all time, noted for its bleak, open-world storytelling in an post-apocalyptic America laid to waste by nuclear war. 2018 is the 10th anniversary of Fallout 3, which originally appeared on the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC in October 2008.
Fallout 3 was followed by another release a few years later in Fallout: New Vegas, so there's no reason why this couldn't be another spin off from the studio.More news: Pret A Manger makes 312% profit for private equity in 10 years
