Bethesda’s Pair Of Unannounced Games Are On The Level Of Fallout And Skyrim


Don’t bank your hopes on laying hands on The Elder Scrolls VI anytime soon, but the next installment in Bethesda’s prestigious RPG is coming – it’s just a “very long way off.

Before firing up production on the inevitable sequel though, the esteemed studio has plans in place for two as-yet-unannounced titles, according to Bethesda’s Todd Howard. Bouncing off that, VP of Public Relations Pete Hines has offered up but a tease of that embryonic duo, noting that both games boast a similar scale and scope to that of Skyrim and Fallout 4.

Per IGN:

“[Howard] said for sure that he’s got two other projects. I’m just making sure folks understand that doesn’t mean he’s going to spit out a DLC and another DLC and we’re head faking. I need folks to understand that we’re talking about big games like a Skyrim and a Fallout 4 and a Fallout 3 and those don’t just happen.”

Bethesda Softworks is currently focused on the upcoming wave of DLC for Fallout 4, while there’s also the small matter of rendering a VR version of the Commonwealth set for release in 2017. It’ll launch for HTC Vive. Elsewhere on the studio’s slate, Skyrim: Special Edition is primed to take flight on October 28 replete with all mainline expansions, enhanced graphics and the addition of console mods.
