Fallout 3Could the Capital Wasteland soon be the setting of a new television series?

In a report from Eurogamer, Fallout publisher Bethesda Softworks has filed a trademark application with the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office for “entertainment services in the nature of an ongoing television program set in a post-nuclear apocalyptic world.”

The application was signed on Jan. 8 and could be nothing more than Bethesda’s attempt to keep the Fallout brand out of the hands of others. Companies often file trademarks and then sit on them. Bethesda’s registration could be valid for years, as long as it files all post registration maintenance documents, according to the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office.

However, a cryptic tweet from Fallout 3 voice actor Erik Todd Dellums last week suggests that the TV show might be a real thing. Dellums, who voiced Wasteland DJ Three Dog in the game, hinted, “To all my #Fallout3 and #ThreeDog fans: There may be more of the Dog coming! Fingers crossed!” Gamers believed the tweet was a thinly veiled reference to an unannounced Fallout sequel, but now it seems likely Dellums was speaking about the television series.
