Is This A Potential Fallout 4 Teaser Site? -UPDATED-
The website thesurvivor2299.com popped up a while back ago and was brought to everyones attention via reddit. What’s interesting, and why we’re talking about it today, is that it has recently been updated with some…er, text. The new text has been translated using Keyed Vigenere cipher with the passphrase ‘Vault Tec’ by, to my knowledge, redditor Extinctconcept2. Here is the text and the translation:
KVNGR REV ALPHA PPS VT PIZ UHMYLPVOQ CM XHWMZP. NBJB SPI’F BYQS QT D’Y BYFGEOB FI VQDYL MAQ. -NGQHT 5120-

There are some people that point out that this domain is owned by Zennimax Media –Zennimax Media owns Bethesda’s developer/publisher divisions– but there’s some hoopla about the page being registering with godaddy.com rather than using their own DNS servers like they do with all their other Bethesda related sites, so it’s leading some to suspect that it might not be Bethesda related. I personally think that’s just a ploy to throw us internet dwellers off the scent and dash some hopes or start some fires.
I’m not sure what to make of it all, but if I were a betting man, I’d put my bottle caps on this being a Fallout 4 teaser site. I guess we’ll know more on December 11th, since that’s when the countdown expires.
It’s a hoax. Dammit.
