Update (May 30, 2018, 7:03 a.m. PT): The game is called Fallout 76, and it was just revealed on Twitch.

Fallout fans may have something to look forward to. Bethesda Game Studios, the company behind the Fallout and Elder Scrolls video game series, posted a teaser on its Twitter account on Tuesday telling us to #PleaseStandBy.

The tweet doesn't give much context, but it includes a retro-looking GIF that may be a nod to the Fallout series' old-school aesthetic. Could a new Fallout game be on the way?

The latest installment in the Fallout franchise was Fallout 4, but since that was released in 2015, we're itching for a new game. Will Bethesda release Fallout 5? Maybe a remastered version of an earlier game? We'll have to #PleaseStandBy to find out.

Bethesda didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.
