Bethesda's "Fallout 4" is pretty much complete, having received the final DLC of the game, "Nuka-World." It is now assumed that the game studios will focus on other projects, such as the much-awaited "The Elder Scrolls 6." However, it appears that "Fallout 5" might beat the RPG game and could get released first, if latest reports prove to be true.

While Bethesda already made it clear over and over again that development for "The Elder Scrolls 6" won't start in many years, a new report has surfaced that the developer is actually working on "Fallout 4's" sequel. This rumor is nothing new; it was even started about eight months ago, when game voice actor Ryan Alosio let slip that there is going to be a "Fallout 5."

In a series of Instagram posts, Ryan Alosio may have revealed that pre-production for "Fallout 5" has already started. Frag Hero already dismissed this as a prank, getting Alosio's statement, which said that the voice actor was only immersed in his role as Deacon.

It is known in the game that Deacon likes to pull pranks, but Ryan Alosio's social media posts about "Fallout 5" went out of control.  The voice actor has since aired his side. "My intention was to interact on Instagram not only as myself, Ryan Alosio, the actor, but as my main character from Fallout 4, Deacon, who happens to be a notorious liar, prankster and dissembler in the world of Fallout," Alosio told Frag Hero, in part.

Despite the statement, "Fallout 5" rumors continue to surface online. According to some gaming websites, if the sequel will happen it will most probably work with the next-generation gaming platforms and will have superb graphics quality. Unique characters are also expected, as well as new gaming modes, new game engine. and gameplay features. It was even speculated that a sequel will be released sometime in 2020 and will take place in another location, such as a post-apocalyptic New York or Japan.

It would be exciting for fans if "Fallout 5" will happen, but it's clear that Bethesda hasn't announced anything official yet. What's certain is that the game studio has major projects in the future and one can only hope that "Fallout 5" is one of them.
