Bethesda, responsible for Fallout 3 and the Elder Scrolls series, may have hired Guillermo del Toro’s production company to create a cinematic trailer for its unannounced RPG Fallout 4.
[dropcap size=small]F[/dropcap]allout 4 is one of the most anticipated games for Playstation 4, Xbox One and PC. Questions and speculation about its release began almost as soon as Fallout 3 was released. Since then there have been plenty of rumors about the unconfirmed game. But when a 3D artist’s CV on LinkedIn states that he was hired on by Mirada Studios between December 2014-March 2015 to create a “Fallout 4 cinematic trailer”, you can be sure that there is going to be a serious amount of speculation.
There has yet to be any confirmation from Bethesda if the 3D artist is in fact working on a cinematic for Fallout 4. All of this begs one important question, what exactly is Mirada Studios? For starters, the company was co-founded by Hollywood quartet Guillermo del Toro, Matthew Cullen, Javier Jiminez and Guillermo Navarro back in late 2010. Mirada Studios describes itself as “a studio designed for storytellers” that offers its creative services to a variety of major clients. These clients include big names like Disney, Nike and Amazon.
In the past, Mirada Studios helped Walt Disney World create a Be Our Guest advert. The studio also did work on Katy Perry’s ‘Dark Horse’ music video and they even developed the prologue to 2013’s CGI blockbuster hit Pacific Rim. With history like that, it wouldn’t be that big of a surprise to see Mirada Studios be given the task to create a cinematic video for Fallout 4. The studio has some experience in video games in the past, the studio did some work on an advert for Nintendo’s Mario Kart 8 back in 2014. So now the next question is, is Fallout 4 actually real?
Rumors have persisted for some time now that the game may be revealed during the publisher’s E3 press conference on Sunday, June 14. In addition to this, it has been rumored that there will be a twenty to thirty minute gameplay demo for the game which is being prepared for a behind-the-scenes presentation at the E3 press conference. In other exciting news Bethesda is, for the first time ever, holding its own press conference in Los Angeles. Their press conference will take place on June 14th, right before the official start of E3. Sounds like a great time to announce Fallout 4.
