I seriously doubt that.

Automatic hit? Obviously that depends on the exact definition of "hit"…I really can't see this failing based on Bethsoft's name and likely use of technology…but I also can't see it being bigger than Oblivion. At the end of the day, high fantasy will trump post-apoc regardless of the other parameters.
Call of Cthulhu I'm pretty sure was a failure. It had Beth's name all over it and that couldn't save it.

I think people should realize many games have a "collective unconscious" about them. There are many names in the industry that are surprisingly resilient. Bard's Tale, System Shock, Wasteland, Ultima, Wizardry, Wolfenstein, Star Wars, Alien, Pool of Radiance…all names that seem to stick around and find new fans. I was shocked to discover "new" ultima fans that didn't like Ultima 3 after they investigated having only played 7. etc…
