Bethesda have trademarked Fallout: Shadow of Boston with the German Patent and Trademark Office.
The listing, spotted by NeoGaf, mentions “game discs”, “downloadable computer game programs” and “auditioning for tv shows”, so perhaps a Defiance-esque tie in show is in the works.
It isn’t the first such copyright move made by Bethesda, who last year put in an application for Fallout 4.
Here’s hoping it isn’t an elaborate hoax.
UPDATE: It is…
The German trademark filing that's making the rounds is a hoax. This didn't come from our offices.
