Is Fallout 5 Coming in 2023?


Those excited to see where the Fallout universe heads to next might be wondering if we'll see Fallout 5 release in 2023.

It's been a while since Fallout fans have had anything new to sink their teeth into. Outside of MMORPG Fallout 76, there hasn't been much talk around the next main entry into the series. Bethesda is hard at work wrapping things up for upcoming RPG Starfield, set to release sometime in 2023. Outside of that, there's still The Elder Scrolls 6 to wait on.

So, what's next for the Fallout series? Amazon's TV adaptation is in production, with set photos having emerged that look pretty close to what we've seen in-game. But what fans are really waiting for is a Fallout 5 announcement.

Will Fallout 5 be Released in 2023?

We can pretty confidently say that Fallout 5 will not be releasing in 2023. For starters, Bethesda have yet to formally announce the project.

Bethesda's Todd Howard confirmed in an interview with IGN that Fallout 5 would be the studio's next project after The Elder Scrolls 6. And, given that we've yet to see a lick of gameplay for TES VI, it's going to be a long time before Fallout 5 is on our radars.

"Yes, Elder Scrolls 6 is in pre-production," Howard said, "and, you know, we’re going to be doing Fallout 5 after that, so our slate’s pretty full going forward for a while. We have some other projects that we look at from time to time as well."

While we're in for a hefty wait, Fallout fans can at least take solace knowing that Fallout 5 is very much still on the table.
