Is Bethesda Working on a Fallout TV Show?
Bethesda has registered a trademark with the USPTO describing the Fallout series.
Eurogamer reports that Bethesda Softworks, the publisher of Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas, has registered a trademark with the United States Patent and Trademark Office for "an ongoing television program set in a post-nuclear apocalyptic world." Sound familiar? It should considering that's the backdrop to Bethesda's highly-coveted Fallout series.
The news follows several tweets posted by voice actor Erik Todd Dellums, aka DJ Three Dog from Fallout 3, who stated that "there may be more of the Dog coming! Fingers crossed!" His tweet included the #ThreeDog and #Fallout3 hashtags, and was followed by another tease that confirmed the first tease.
"How was that for a tease! I was given permission to release that tease, so fingers crossed," Dellums added. What a tease.
Originally there was speculation that he was hinting to an unannounced Fallout 4, but he may have been talking about the TV show instead. How this series will be brought to the small screen is unknown at this point, but if he's providing the voice of DJ Three Dog, then it's likely to be animated or full-blown CGI.
Fallout: New Vegas, developed by Obsidian Entertainment, is the latest installment of the Fallout series, released back in 2010. Fallout 3, developed by Bethesda Game Studios, was launched in 2008 and takes place in Washington D.C. and the surrounding area. Bethesda developers are supposedly "scoping out and researching" Boston as the stage in the next installment in the series, Fallout 4.
Still, with the success of The Walking Dead on AMC, it wouldn't be surprising to see Bethesda follow suit and bring the popular post-apocalyptic series to the small screen. Everything is just a rumor for now, so stay tuned.
