As of now, each of these listings have been removed from Amazon, leaving the validity of this unknown Bethesda game currently up in the air. While there’s no trace of the mystery listing left, speculation about the title still lives on. Gematsu points out an interesting tidbit about the above video, finding that it’s actually freely-available stock footage rather than from a new title.

Rumors of a remastered Fallout 3 have also been making the rounds over recent years, but whether they’re true also remains to be seen.
