Fallout 4 - Boston Bound?
However, a Redditor going by the pseudonym "fallout4boston" recently posted the following...
The rumors are true, Fallout 4 will take place in Boston. In case you haven't heard, Bethesda has recently been scoping out and researching Boston. They also have a strong connection to MIT. I may or may not be an MIT employee. But that's really all I can say for fear of losing my job.
I am telling you it will take place in Boston. Whether you believe me or not, how do you feel about a Fallout Boston?
Could this rumor have legs? Well, it is worth noting that the "Commonwealth" mentioned in Fallout 3 was apparently specifically referencing Massachusetts, according to a Bethesda employee in a 1UP interview. New Vegas and Fallout 3 also referenced a Commonwealth institute that could theoretically be MIT (the Massachusetts Institute of Technology).
Then again, vague references to "institutes" and other locations from Fallout 3 could point to hundreds of other locations. I guess we'll just have to wait and see.
