It looks like one of the voice actors in the Fallout series made a little goof on his Instagram today and let loose with information that Fallout 5 already in pre-production. Seeing as Fallout 4 is only just ramping up with an extensive post-launch DLC run on the way it’s almost surprising that news has surfaced so quickly. On the other hand, considering the development cycle of a AAA game these days perhaps it’s no surprise that a sequel is already underway.
Actor Ryan Alosio, who plays Deacon in Fallout 4, made the gaffe and quickly tried to correct his mistake but some quick eyes and even quicker screen caps have locked the evidence away on the internet permanently. Known to be very active over social media, Alosio had made an Instagram post just over a week ago that was a photo collection of himself in the studio recording Deacon for Fallout 4. At least that’s what he thought he had done. In actuality the character included in the post was Zeke, another character from the game. The internet works fast as fans quickly called out the mistake which prompted Alosio to delete and re-up the image with the correct picture of Deacon. It came with a candid rambling from Ryan:
Ok, so in response to this little slip another Instagram user, fallout_temple posted this:
To which finally, Alosio responded with a confirmation that pre-production is indeed happening on Fallout 5 and that he is involved in some capacity.
“Yeah, that slipped by me somehow, the damn sunglasses and dark hair. Zeeeeeke! Seriously though, I appreciate that, it would be very helpful to gather more followers for the fantastic Fallout 4 tribe here, internally there is movement gearing up for the pre-production of Fallout 5 ….(shhh), obviously I can’t get into any details at all right now but it will be a very interesting journey moving forward. [thumbs up emoticon]”
As quick as that response was posted it was also down as Ryan quickly realized his mistake. He put up another response minus the Fallout 5 info bomb but again, the internet works fast and the proof is immortalized in screen caps:
What’s your take, readers? Is this all the proof you need or would you put this squarely in the rumor column? Let us know in the comments below.
