Following its recent reveal from Bethesda studios, RPG video game Fallout 4 now has got a possible release date, thanks to retailer Gamestop Italy.
The latest buzz suggests that Gamestop Italy could have inadvertently revealed the actual release date. The retailer has pinned the game for a 23 October, 2015 release, TMag reported. It was also said that most of the video games in Europe roll out on a Friday and 23 October also falls on Friday.
Hence, it was argued that if the dates of the European release were true then the North American release dates could be 20 October, 2015.
There aren't many who argue with a 2015 release. The video that was released showed a lot about the game but there were no hints of a release date. Bethesda has been maintaining secrecy around the game and its content for a long time now.
Various retailers have also put placeholder dates for Fallout 4 with many agreeing that it will release in 2015. Amazon has put the game's placeholder date for 31 December, 2015.
It is well known that Fallout fans have been demanding Fallout 4 for a long time now. Barring the Kotaku reveal, most other reveals were hoaxes or fakes.
However, it has been pointed out that Gamestop Italy has been right on previous such leaks regarding release date and had also correctly guessed the release date of Rainbow Six: Siege. However, the decision from Ubisoft on its simultaneous release put the date at 13 October instead of the rumoured 16 October.
Meanwhile, Bethesda has released a clarifying statement indicating that it has not shared its release date with any retailer and its official store is being run independently by specialist Treehouse.
"The official store is run independently by Treehouse. We have not shared any news on a release date," Bethesda spokesperson told GamingBolt.
It is most likely that Bethesda will officially reveal its release date for Fallout 4 during the upcoming E3 2015 Showcase event on 14 June. Fallout 4 will have its world premiere here.
Fallout 4 will be rolling out for PC, PS4, and Xbox One platforms.
