UPDATE: Could The Popular Video Game FALLOUT Be Headed To TV?

Bethesda Softworks, the creators behind the Fallout video games, have registered a very revealing trademark that seems to imply their highly successful video game series could be headed to television, details after the jump...

I think we can all agree that the games in the Fallout series (such as 3 and New Vegas) are big hits, and the name is very recognizable among the video game community. There has also been a graphic novel spinoff called All Roads, but now...the series might just be headed to television.

Thanks to EuroGamer for the discovery, the popular video game franchise Fallout could be headed to your television screens. Bethesda Softworks have registered a trademark at the US Patent and Trademark Office with the mark "FALLOUT", for "an on-going television program set in a post-nuclear apocalyptic world."

Also, Erik Todd Dellums, who portrays DJ Three Dog in Fallout 3, tweeted out that we might be seeing more of the character very soon. This led fans to believe that a fourth installment was on the way, but now it seems he could be talking about the potential television series.




UPDATE: It appears as though this has been a red herring or brand protection. Thanks to an email tip from Nukapedia, it appears that Bethesda has registered for a Fallout TV Series multiple times, which also have led to nothing materialising. Could Erik Dellum's tweet be about a fourth installment in the franchise?


Would you like to see the Fallout series on television? If so, which network do you think would be appropriate? Feel free to share your thoughts in the usual place below.

Best video game franchise ever. I have played all four fallout games religiously.

This could work. Very well in fact. Use the Fallout 3 layout.
LAXtremest - 1/16/2013, 2:40 PM
I thought New Vegas was kinda average... Too many bugs.

I fückin' love these games and I would be totally behind a TV or Film adaptation.

I would prefer them to make Fallout 4, but a TV show would be awesome. Both would be a godsend.

I have high hopes for this.

Cool but it'd have to be on HBO or even AMC. This series is very dark at times and major networks will probably gloss over the more disturbing aspects of the series.

This tweet was covered by Kotaku also a while back... Don't think it's hinting towards a series but towards the next game.

could work

I love Fallout , but not sure about a show unless FX,AMC,HBO,SHOWTIME does it. I would honestly rather have Fallout4 instead
CaptainAmerica31 - 1/16/2013, 5:07 PM
YESSSSSS but I'll only watch it if it's on HBO SHOtime or cinemax. GOSH im pumped for either the show or Game #4 BRING IT!
lapress - 1/16/2013, 7:03 PM
The whole show should be in 1st Person
thalidomide - 1/16/2013, 9:14 PM
Ppsssshhhh... Fallout 1 and 2 are still the best fallout games ever!

I conceptualized this a long time ago. I even made the ad posters and outlined the seasons
RyGoR - 1/17/2013, 2:41 AM
Fallout series would work quite well on TV I do believe
peppy - 1/17/2013, 3:33 AM
Fallout new Vegas is one of my favourite games on ps3 , a. T.V series ( if done properly ) would be insanely awesome .
Christuffer - 1/17/2013, 4:13 AM
Here's the proof that I did indeed think of this a long time ago. Lol
