Fallout 4 teaser site was just a brilliant hoax

Too good to be true

The weird website thesurvivor2299.com seemed to be leading up to an announcement for Fallout 4, but now the site just has a video of a sad violin. Bethesda already said that they weren't going to be showing anything new at VGX, but they didn't come right out and say the site was fake. 

Beneath the sad violin video the site has the message "Special thanks to /r/Fallout the most amazing community on reddit. PSA: YT User 'Elevated Level', Butch, Pitor, Liam Neeson and creator of tunnelsnakesrule.com are not responsible for this 'hoax/rickroll'. Ah, and thepropheteer.com is a fake too (Still thumbs up for this guy it looks great!). Don't hate bethesda, hate me. That's all. I really hope you'll get a real Fallout 4 soon, guys. PPS To real haters: if you really wish me dead IRL, go here . Otherwise, if you're pissed off/hate me, then see you and remember to watch VGX!."

Whoever you are, good job. I enjoyed the crazy conspiracy on Reddit, and we all enjoyed thinking about another Fallout game. Hopefully Bethesda is actually working on Fallout 4 and we hear something on it soon.
