Earlier today, the Internet got super excited because it appeared as though Bethesda had filed a trademark for Fallout: Shadow of Boston in Germany.

There's just one small problem with that: They did no such thing. Bethesda took to social media to make it clear that they did not file a trademark for a new Fallout game and that "Fallout: Shadow of Boston" is a hoax.

As it stands, all of our hopes and dreams have once again been crushed in 140 characters or less.
