Fallout 4 Teaser Site Confirmed Fake
As we all probably anticipated, the Fallout 4 teaser site (survivor2299.com) has officially been confirmed as a fake.
Bethesda’s twitter account officially announced that they had nothing to do with the teaser site, saying that ‘If you don’t hear it through an official channel like this, assume all rumors and speculation are false.’ Since Bethesda’s announcement a reddit user by the username ‘DCHoaxer’ has come out and taken responsibility for the hoax site, explaining his motives during a Reddit Ask Me Anything.
During the Q&A he admitted that the hoax cost around $1000 for web hosting (Hosting $30, Traffic (15TB) $60), and a premium phone line (costing around $900) and he revealed he had plans to create a CGI trailer, with full script written by none other than our elusive hoaxer.
Quite a lot of money to spend just to troll people, but DCHoaxer describes himself as a ‘rich douche’. What do you guys think of the hoax? Well done or just plain annoying?
