Fallout 4 is back in the reckoning following Bethesda's teaser that asks more questions than answers.
Bethesda started a countdown timer that will end on Thursday, 4 June, promising a new game reveal. If all the speculations are correct, it might as well be the long expected and delayed Fallout 4.
The reveal will be in place for the run up to the company's first E3 2015 Showcase, the first ever for the company. The countdown timer reads, "Please Stand By". The countdown will end tomorrow at 10 am ET.

Fallout 4 is expected to be a sequel to 2008's Fallout 3. Previously leaked documents had revealed that the game would be based in Boston. However, there isn't any concrete evidence of that. This will be the first game since the developers rolled out 2010's Fallout New Vegas.
The game has seen various hoaxes and fakes, including vague teases. If Fallout 4 is in fact revealed on Thursday, then it will join Doom game for E3 2015 Showcase.
One reason for such an early reveal could be that Bethesda is scared of a leak before its event at E3 2015, to be held on 14 June.
