There are lots of cool places that Fallout 4 could explore, but have you ever considered Boston? Details of the game are scarce right now, but a recent post on Reddit indicates that Fallout 4 could be taking place in Boston as Bethesda is reportedly doing some research in the area. Take it with a grain of salt for now.
“Fallout 4 will take place in Boston. In case you haven’t heard, Bethesda has recently been scoping out and researching Boston […] They also have a strong connection to MIT. I may or may not be an MIT employee. But that’s really all I can say for fear of losing my job. I am telling you it will take place in Boston.”
Then another user backed him up saying: “I’ve been hearing reports from people in the Boston area, where my fellow Fallout-obsessed brother lives, that Bethesda has been in the Boston area doing initial research for Fallout 4. It’s highly speculative, but the main rumors surround Bethesda’s connection to “The Institute”, or what we call the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, or M.I.T.”
Not sure what to think myself. I guess we will find out soon.
