Fallout4 Teaser Site thesurvivor2299 a Hoax

Probably. Am I saying probably just because I just really want to believe, yet have no proof? Yes.

A couple weeks ago we talked about whether or not thesurvivor2299 site teasing Fallout 4 was a hoax or not and now the chances were pretty good this site is indeed an elaborate hoax.  Over the past couple of days, Bethesda began to respond to inquiries that, I suppose, made the site roll out its Fallout version of a rick-roll early instead of waiting for the count-down.

Some believed that Bethesda might tease something at the VGX ahead of the count-down running out a few days after the show, but Pete Hines put the kibosh on that.



But many continued to believe, thinking perhaps they just weren't going to show anything at VGX and go with their countdown date.  Then today, Bethesda posted another tweet that really sealed the deal and perhaps pushed survivor2299 to roll out their surprise early.



It's been quite an impressive hoax, but it seems like the doubters that pointed to r/fallout on reddit for being the fastest to respond to every change in the site and the first to post initially were onto something as the hoaxer thanks r/fallout on the site. Either way, the site has been quite entertaining, and it's impressive the amount of work put into the hoax.

About the Author - Jeremy Shane

Jeremy was born in a small mountain village of a strange foreign land called Weystvurginea.  Banishment for liberal views saw him spend years wondering the east coast until he decided to bike to California.  When he saw how long a trip it was, he drove instead.  Now he's living it up in a low humidity climate, sometimes working on his photography and when not, he writes for us covering books (by way of his blog: Reading Realms), gaming, tv, movies, comics, conventions in the SoCal area, and creates a weekly webcomic: A Journey Through Skyrim.  If you look for him offline, start in the L.A. area; online start at: for his profile and all the social networks he's on... or just follow him on twitter, he seems to be on there a lot: @jeremyshane.
