Fallout 4 trademarked by Bethesda in Europe

Fallout 4 is looking more and more likely thanks to yet another piece of evidence suggesting a reveal might be on the way.

Bethesda has trademarked Fallout 4 in Europe, which is of course a sound business move at any time – but it’s interesting that the publisher has only just decided to get it done, having had the property for years.

Normally we’d sweep it under the rug, but the trademark comes suspiciously close to the appearance of a website which some believe may be a teaser site for a new Fallout game.

Moreover, the Spike VGAs – sorry, VGX – are now just around the corner, and Bethesda has been off Skyrim since wrapping development of its DLC in April.

Last time the publisher said anything about its core studio’s new project, it said it was looking awesome, but had not set a timeframe for reveal.

Thanks, Destructoid.
