For those who know and love Fallout 4’s master-of-disguise Deacon, the voice actor let something slip on Instagram in regards to the wasteland game sequel, according to Game Rant. Though the Railroad member lies incognito, popping up in towns around the wasteland where he’s least expected, it appears that voice actor Ryan Alosio let something slip in regards to an “internal movement” in the sequel.
“Internally there is movement gearing up for the pre-production of Fallout 5….(shhh), obviously I can’t get into any details at all right now but it will be a very interesting journey moving forward.”
Soon after, it disappeared and was replaced by some other dialogue similar in nature, but minus the reveal.
The Fallout 5 statement cannot be unseen, so the post was screen captured and made viewable to all on the internet as seen on Game Rant with their source, Frag Hero, who captured screen shots and showed a video commentary about the game sequel reveal by Frag Hero on YouTube.

So there’s a bit of an online paper trail that leads back to the aforementioned sources that have a keen eye and quick screenshot fingers. That goes to show there’s no back-peddling on the world wide web.
Now, the Fallout 4 game was said to have been started as soon as Fallout 3 was done, so would it not make sense that Bethesda Games could very well be following the same pattern here? It was also reported that Todd Howard said there were three projects “in the works,” according to Polygon.
So, perhaps Ryan Alosio let slip one of those three big projects?
Howard had this to say in regards to the future of Bethesda Games’ projects.
“We actually have three longer-term projects that are all — we’ll talk about them at a much future date — they’re different from anything we’ve done before while also being a Bethesda style game: big and crazy, but in many ways different from what we’ve done before.”
It seems Ryan was posting a scrapbook-like montage of himself voice over acting and what he thought was a picture of Deacon from the Fallout 4 game. Turns out, it was instead Zeke who is known for his abilities to upgrade power armor and is the founding member of the Atom Cats. So there does seem to be a similarity to the characters’ features.
This isn’t the first time a voice actor from the Fallout universe let some interesting game sequel information regarding Bethesda’s projects be known. Fans may recall the enthusiastic Three Dog of Galaxy News Radio in the Washington D.C. wasteland who peppered the airwaves with his mighty, boisterous voice. Well, that actor is played by Erik Dellums. Game Rant mentioned how he talked about the existence of Fallout 4, and this happened three years ago.
This Fallout 4 news reveal was also mentioned on Cinema Blend with an already still existing YouTube video of Dellums in a podcast, talking about how he discussed the existence of Fallout 4 on Twitter whilst speaking of the possible return of Three Dog, but was given the go-ahead to discuss it regardless.
“I let [Bethesda] know that fans were clamoring, trying to figure out if there’s any chance that Three Dog would be back sometime. And, you know, they let it slip that it looks like Three Dog will. And they said that, ‘Well, maybe you could tell your fans.’ I don’t think they even anticipated it would explode like this.”
Fallout 5, in Alonso’s case, hasn’t been confirmed officially, with no company backing such a claim. As was mentioned previously, this was just a quick glance at an Instagram post that disappeared as soon as it did appear, but it is exciting to see the pattern of an end-to-end start and finish situation between Fallout 3 and Fallout 4, which can lead to further speculation.
