Fallout 5 should go back to where it started: California

Fallout 5 is a long way off. As Todd Howard, the director/executive producer/Vault Boy-esque mascot of Bethesda Game Studios said, Fallout 5 will follow The Elder Scrolls 6, which is still in pre-production. Maybe we’ll get to play it in the 2030s, climate change willing.

Distant as it is, as soon as a new Bethesda RPG is mentioned we start to wonder where it’s going to be set. When The Elder Scrolls 6 was announced with a teaser of some mountains we will someday be able to go to, we immediately started trying to figure out if that meant it’d be set in High Rock or Hammerfell or what. Naturally, the first question to ask as we squint at the extremely distant prospect of Fallout 5 is: where to next?

When Bethesda took over the Fallout series, it set down a formula. Each one since then has gone to a different slice of the USA with its own historic monuments to deface and local fauna to monsterize. It’s easy to imagine the next one repeating the trick. Fallout New York maybe, where atomic pizza rats fight radcats over scraps in the ruined bodegas.
