Survivor2299/Fallout 4 Hoax

There are increasing indications that the survivor2299.com website was part of an elaborate hoax to troll Fallout fans, rather than an official viral tease of any sort, and true to that, Bitdefender Antivirus now warns that it's blocking the page due to malware. Bethesda seems to finally be addressing this, as Bethesda Blog tweets: "PSA: If you don’t hear it through an official channel like this, assume all rumors and speculation are false." They blame their extremely tardy clarification on not taking the 10 million blog posts and forum comments about this seriously at first, saying "@CrashRakashe we avoid responding to rumors and speculation, but did wanted to respond once people took it more seriously." The first report we saw on this suggested it was a fake, but there have been various indications since then further confusing the issue, including the website apparently being registered to Zenimax. IncGamers recaps the whole shebang, which included another viral site launching yesterday that also seems to be Fallout related, but this is apparently also part of the original hoax, and has likewise been disavowed by Zenimax, who say: "Not us. We’re looking into who is doing this."
