has released a new teaser trailer for the newest game in the Fallout franchise. Even though Bethesda made the Fallout: New Vegas announcement, it is not being developed in house at Bethesda Softworks.

]. Fallout appears to be in safe hands for its next chapter. Bethesda Softworks handed off this project so it could work exclusively on its own IP, Brink
, that is currently under production and projected to also be released by the Holiday Season 2010.
Bethesda even updated the overview
