Fallout 5 it is currently in development which is very nice. Unfortunately, that’s all we know, and it looks like it may be a long time before we hear more. What we know is this Fallout 5 will come out after two other Bethesda Game Studios projects.
Starfield is Bethesda’s first game to be released early Fallout 5and fortunately not far. Besides, we have Elder Scrolls 6 which we look forward to, but this game is even further ahead. Most likely, we won’t see each other Fallout 5 for many more years, depending on how these other projects develop.
While we wait for more news about Fallout 5, on this page you will find everything we know about the game so far. As more is revealed, we’ll add details here.
Fallout 5: get to the point
- What is this? The next installment of the Fallout series
- When can I play it? to be confirmed
- What console will it be on? Probably not a PlayStation
Fallout 5 release date and platform
Although there is currently no confirmed release date for Fallout 5there’s a lot of speculation. We’ve seen optimistic predictions, but given Bethesda’s focus is definitely on Starfield AND Elder Scrolls 6, never mind that the game has not even been revealed, we do not expect it for a long time. In the current situation, we expect Fallout 5the release date is set to be years later, which really extends the previous seven-year gap between them Fallout 3 (2008) and Fallout 4 (2015). Right now, 2025 or later seems more realistic.
Platforms for Fallout 5 hasn’t been confirmed, but we’ll likely see another Fallout for Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, and PC. If we’re not looking at next-gen consoles at this point, that is. The PS5, however, is a different matter.
Fallout 5 – History and Setting: Where can this be set?
If you’ve ever played a Fallout game, you know how much the American setting of nuclear-ravaged annihilation is loved. All Fallout games have been set in the US state, so it seems obvious that this aspect will not change. Fallout 3for example, he was embedded in Washington while Fallout 4 took place in Boston.
It’d be nice to see Fallout explore different parts of the world, but it might change the game too much and alienate longtime fans who particularly like the setting. You don’t have to look far to see fans discussing and fantasizing about where Fallout 5 will be held.
Here are the most rumored places we’ve heard about so far:
Rumors that the new Fallout game will be set in New Orleans arose after a trademark application forFallout New Orleans (opens in a new tab)was spotted online in 2016. In the end, this list didn’t result in anything more than five years later, but it could all be a clever bait and swap.
We’ve already visited swampy areas in Fallout, but a game set entirely in the deep south would certainly be an interesting approach.
This one is a bit more “out there” in terms of importance. The game in the Windy City is speculated only because the fans Fallout: New Vegas note that there is a tip about the Chicago Enclave facility.
Anywhere else in the world
There’s never been a Fallout game set outside of the US, so maybe Fallout 5 be the one to break this trend? Having a game set in Korea, China, Russia or elsewhere would be a great way to change the look of the entire map and locale. The new installment is a great opportunity to give the franchise a fresh aesthetic.
Fallout 5 news

In an interview with IGN (opens in a new tab)this was confirmed by Todd Howard Fallout 5 will be the next Bethesda project Elder Scrolls 6.
“Yeah, Elder Scrolls 6 is in pre-production and then we’ll be doing Fallout 5, so our roster is pretty full for a while,” Howard told the publication. “We also have a few other projects that we look at from time to time.”
Work has begun… sort of
Work started on Fallout 5 but don’t hold your breath to see it anytime soon. speak to IGN (opens in a new tab) in November 2021, for the upcoming release The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim Anniversary EditionBethesda Studio Director Todd Howard revealed that a “one-page” design document was already available for Fallout 5being a very early blueprint for what the studio had planned for the game.
Being a “one-page document”, the design document is a high-level outline and therefore not much to share. WITH Starfield AND Elder Scrolls 6 both first, it will be a while before we hear more Fallout 5.
As for whether Obsidian – the studio that did development in the Xbox 360 era Fallout: New Vegas— may have had some involvement, Howard said, “We worked with other people from time to time. I can’t tell what will happen… If I could wave my hand and have [Fallout 5] except… you know, I’d love to find a way to speed up what we’re doing but I can’t really say or commit to anything today that will happen when outside of our term Starfield Then Elder Scrolls 6“.
