Yes, it can-can-can be true.

Update: A European trademark has now also been filed.

A new website, thesurvivor2299.com, registered to has been spotted online by the perpetually web-combing eyes of Reddit. There are clues galore that this site relates to a forthcoming announcement (most likely , or whatever they end up calling it.)

Let us go over the relevant hints:

  • Registered to ZeniMax (publishers of Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas.)
  • The date 2299 would place the game around 15-20 years after the events of New Vegas (while Fallout 3 was late 2270s.)
  • As figured out by Reddit, the Morse code playing on the page spells out 11.12.13. Since 12 November has already passed, that’s probably referring to the European style date system and saying 11 December. The Spike Video Game Awards always air in mid-December, so that may well be when this project is revealed more fully.
  • The site contains a script called fallout.js (again, thanks to Reddit for that one.)

Rather convincing stuff, there. Now, hopefully it really is a proper Fallout sequel and not an iPhone game/free to play MMO/terrible MOBA. I’d love anotherĀ Fallout game developed by Obsidian, but since they’re busy doing South Park and Project Eternity it’ll probably be doing the honours again.

Update: The site now has an actual countdown on it, corresponding to the 11 December as a reveal date. Our excellent commentators have also pointed out further clues found within the site’s code, such as mp3 radio clips named after Bridgeport, CT and Fall River, MA and links to hidden images pointing at prepareforthefuture.com (which redirects to the official Fallout site.)
