Bethesda executive producer Todd Howard hints at three new ‘big’ titles on the horizon at the studio, but stops short of provided specific details about the games.
These days it seems Bethesda Game Studios has quite a few items cooking for gamers. The developer recently revealed it’s working on a new mobile game after the success of Fallout Shelter, and provided updates about the upcoming Fallout 4 VR.
Fortunately for fans of Bethesda’s work, those aren’t the only items the company is working on. The folks at Glixel recently connected with Bethesda executive producer Todd Howard about upcoming projects. In the interview, Howard revealed the team is working on three large projects. Howard said:
“We’ve got a good number of projects on the go. We’re bigger now and we do want to be putting out more stuff. We have two larger projects that are more classically the scale of what we do, but even bigger. We overlap the projects so we’re working on them at the same time, but they’re staggered. I can’t talk a lot about them, but I can say that they’re bigger than anything we’ve ever done. They’re a bit different, but definitely in the wheelhouse that people are used to from us.”
Considering what Bethesda has accomplished with the Elder Scrolls and Fallout franchises, there is a lot of reason to get excited for the coming games. That said, Howard kept specific details about the games close to the vest. With that in mind, gamers are left to speculate about what the games could be.
While it’s surely possible Bethesda is hard at work on a new IP, it wouldn’t be surprising to learn that a new Elders Scrolls game and Fallout title are in development. If that’s the case, gamers may not receive any details until E3 2017. The developer recently confirmed the date for its E3 2017 presentation to land on the same day and time “as usual.”
In the meantime, gamers can look forward to upcoming details of MachineGames’ next chapter in the Wolfenstein franchise. The title was teased last week, with Bethesda’s marketing executive Pete Hines calling the new Wolfenstein game “f—ing bananas.”
Gamers can also look forward to bethesda’s horror action title, Prey, which is set to release on May 5th. Gamers can check out the first 30 minutes of Prey gameplay to get a feel for the game.
