The other week, Fallout fans were going crazy over the “news” that Fallout 5 was supposedly in pre-production, and had been leaked by Ryan Alosio, who voices Deacon in Fallout 4. Unfortunately, this turned out to be a major letdown. Alosio has rescinded his claim and now says it was a prank.
It is reasonable to expect that there is going to be a follow-up to Fallout 4; it has been a hugely successful game. DLC will be ongoing through 2016 and may even continue past the end of this year.
The rumor that Fallout 5 is already in pre-production started when Ryan Alosio posted the following image to his Instagram account:

It was at this point that Ryan posted the following reply to Fallout Temple:
Yeah, that slipped by me somehow, the damn sunglasses and dark hair. Zeeeeeke!
