  • Debunking all rumors, Bethesda has confirmed that Fallout 4 was NOT shown behind closed doors at E3 by saying, “We showed three games at E3 – Wolfenstein: The New Order, The Elder Scrolls Online and The Evil Within. We did not show any of our games behind closed doors.” Notice how they didn’t say it wasn’t in development? [Source]

  • Ashraf Islamil, Game Director on Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, said, “Naval multiplayer, unfortunately, we don’t have it.

Or Assassin’s Creed 2015? Or Assassin’s Creed 2016? [Source]
