Bethesda recently announced a new Fallout game called Fallout 76. It’s already started taking pre-orders for the title even though the game hasn’t been properly revealed. We don’t even know when it’s going to be released, but it appears that the Amazon listing for the title may have briefly revealed a possible Fallout 76 release date.
Amazon had initially listed the Fallout 76 release date as July 31st, 2018. The pre-order page had gone live on Amazon shortly after the brief teaser trailer was released by Bethesda. The seemingly precise release date has since been changed to December 31st, 2019 which is most definitely a placeholder. We know this because Bethesda is expected to release the game this year.
Bethesda hasn’t officially confirmed when it will release Fallout 76 but there’s speculation online that the July 31st release date is known to Amazon which is one of the biggest online retailers of games so it wouldn’t be surprising if Amazon knew about the release date ahead of time.
However, there’s a possibility that the July 31st date might have been an error because history tells us that Bethesda normally doesn’t release new Fallout titles in July. We will have to wait for E3 2018 which is just around the corner.
