It looks like Fallout 4 was announced along with it's release date if the reports are to be believed.
Cyberland has reported that Bethesda is allegedly going to surprise gamers at EGX 2014 by announcing Fallout 4 at the event and they did... slightly as Cyberland has claimed that Fallout 4 was allegedly shown behind closed doors at EGX 2014.
Reddit user GNR_Informant revealed that Fallout 4 is already in the makings for the PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
The informant claims that he knows Bethesda's public relation officer and shared with the site, Motoring Crunch, on the content coming from the insider.
"First and foremost, the game will take place in Boston, and be kind of a direct sequel to Fallout 3 with a few groups returning. From what it sounds like, "The Institute" is pretty much the downtown DC or New Vegas of this game. Boston is going to be unlike anything we've seen in a Fallout game before, with buildings more on par with cyberpunk and retro-futurism."
"Androids play a big part in this game. The railroad from Fallout 3 is a faction. The enemies of the railroad is "the Plantation" - a group who force Androids to farm so that Humans can get food. The Institute is highly advanced and probably obtained or built their own GECK to start a farm."
"Due to complaints about using Super Mutants and the Brotherhood of Steel in Fallout 3 excessively and going against the lore too much, Bethesda has decided to avoid using these groups. Bethesda wants to make a new "race" (think Ghoul, Super Mutant) which will be central to Boston. Bethesda is currently looking at Lovecraftian fiction since Boston is around 'Lovecraft Country'."
"Bethesda has no plans to reinvent the leveling up system to make it more like Skyrim and want to make Fallout 4 more distinct from Skyrim since of the complaints that Oblivion and Fallout 3 were too similar. Bethesda is thinking about introducing a system, similar to Skyrim, where your skills can level up if you perform certain tasks."
Cyberland has reported that the Fallout 4 release date is tentatively set on Fall 2015 while speculations run rampant that Fallout 4 launches on October 2015.
