The Survivor 2299 proves to be a fake

Something still doesn't feel right though

Time has been called a little early on The Survivor 2299 teaser site showing it to be a bit of a hoax.

The site's creators have brought the countdown timer to a close four days early with a Youtube video of sad violin music and a message saying “That's All Folks” and asking that disgruntled fans should not blame Bethesda.

It went on to say, “Remember! don't be mad at Bethesda. They are an awesome company. Special thanks to /r/Fallout the most amazing community on reddit for resolving all clues. PSA: I don't own the Fawkes Facebook page. YT User 'Elevated Level', Butch, Pitor, Liam Neeson and creator of tunnelsnakesrule.com are not responsible for this 'hoax/rickroll'” The Survivor 2299 proves to be a fake

They've also posted a link to a special message to anyone who has taken particular exception to the rouse and an email address for people to direct their internet ire, iamreallyupset@gmail.com.

What is odd is that Bethesda would not directly state that this particular site was a hoax choosing instead to say on Twitter, “PSA: If you don’t hear it through an official channel like this, assume all rumors and speculation are false.”

It's also strange that they would choose today, the occasion of VGX, to draw the hoax to a close.

Thanks StickTwiddlers.
