Rumour: TV show planned?

by Anna Roberts

A newly registered trademark and a couple of tweets suggest that the production of a television series based on the post-apocalyptic Fallout franchise of video games may be underway.

Bethesda Softworks, publishers of the most recent Fallout games, Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas, have registered a trademark for “FALLOUT,” Eurogamer reports – with a description of “Entertainment services in the nature of an on-going television program set in a post-nuclear apocalyptic world.”

The trademark was filed on the same day that Fallout 3 voice actor Erik Todd Dellums teased his followers about his potential involvement in another Fallout project:

To all my #Fallout3 and #ThreeDog fans: There may be more of the Dog coming! Fingers crossed!

@toasttherabbit How was that for a tease! I was given permission to release that tease, so fingers crossed.

— Erik Todd Dellums (@ETDellums) January 8, 2015

Earlier today, Dellums reiterated that he could say nothing more about the TV show or Fallout 4.

Dear #Fallout Friends: I unfortunately have nothing further to report on the future of #Fallout. Like you, I wait hopeful and patient.

There has been no word from Bethesda yet about either a Fallout TV show or Fallout 4, but current rumours suggest that the latter may debut with the next-generation consoles later this year.

The Fallout franchise started back in 1997, with its sequel following a year later. Several spin-off titles followed before Fallout: 3 was released in 2008. New Vegas is the most recent game in the series, which launched in 2010. The series of RPGs, set in the 22nd and 23rd centuries, have enjoyed constant critical and commercial success.

Do you think a TV show based in the Fallout world could be successful? What do you think the TV show should focus on – the survival aspects or the conflict between the Wasteland’s factions?
