Bethesda Trademarks Fallout 4
November has been a busy month for Fallout 4 rumors, and following the discovery of what many believe to be a Fallout 4 teaser site, publisher Bethesda Softworks has trademarked the game in Europe.
The registration was discovered by eagled eyed Reddit users on the website of the Office for Harmonization in the Internal Markets – that’s the official trademark office of the European Union.
While trademarks can never be taken as 100% confirmation of anything, the timing seems more than coincidental. The Survivor 2299 tease site is still counting down to 11 December 2013 , and is registered to Bethesda’s parent company ZeniMax Media. Bethesda has had the opportunity to trademark Fallout 4 for years, why now? Hopefully an announcement is coming soon – with the Spike VGX awards in a few weeks, we could see the title make its debut.
Bethesda has declined to comment, though we will be sure to bring you any announcements as the come.
