The press cycle for Amazon’s upcoming Fallout TV present is in full swing, and a facet impact is that we’re already getting some morsels of details about upcoming video games. Co-creator Jonathan Nolan just lately claimed that the upcoming collection was basically “Fallout 5,” which set off some alarms for folk for some cause.

“Our collection sits in relation to the video games because the video games sit in relation to one another. It’s nearly like we’re Fallout 5. I don’t need to sound presumptuous, nevertheless it’s only a non-interactive model of it, proper?”

The quote made the rounds as players anxiously assumed that the present was someway going to take the place of an official Fallout 5 recreation from Bethesda, though the studio has already tacitly confirmed its existence and that it’s set to reach someday after the following Elder Scrolls recreation, which suggests it’s nonetheless a few years off. If something, Fallout obsessives ought to maybe contemplate themselves fortunate to be getting something resembling a Fallout 5, for the reason that present’s inevitably going to fill the hole between now and the distant launch of the following precise recreation.

Nonetheless, Nolan has since tamped down the rumor mill, clarifying that the Fallout present is just not actually changing the following recreation, and is definitely steering effectively away from it. In a follow-up with Den Of Geek at SXSW 2024, Nolan confirmed that the present, which takes place a few decade after the newest chronological installment (Fallout 4, set in 2287) is completely its personal unique story that’s no less than partially knowledgeable by what recreation collection’ director Todd Howard has advised him not to do. Why? As a result of “we’re going to try this in Fallout 5,” based on Howard, who says he has shared particulars of Fallout 5’s eventual story with the present’s creators and successfully known as dibs.

With that flag firmly planted, co-showrunner Graham Wagner joked that that they had as a substitute made “Fallout 6.” The purpose, on the finish of the day, is that the very cool-looking present does sit someplace within the canon and chronology, however not at the price of any future video games that you simply aren’t going to see for a decade anyway. So for now, settle in with the present and Fallout 76, which is supposedly in a higher place nowadays.
