Bethesda Softworks announced this morning that Fallout 3 has dropped 4.7 million units on retail and (Geiger) counted sales of over $300 million. Initial retail data from the UK shows the game is a hit on every platform it was released on. Don't let the money fool you, the title isn't just a sales darling, it's been well received by critics as well.

So, when do we get Fallout 4? We do know that Bethesda is "potentially" working on getting another Elder Scrolls out the door for 2010, but perhaps the hundreds of millions in Fallout dollars will convince the developer to hire some folks to work on another post-apocalyptic RPG at the same time.
