Besthesda move onto next project.....

Post by N1NJA FWG on Mon 15 Apr 2013 - 20:38


Taken from EG:

Bethesda Game Studios has moved wholesale onto "our next major project", which is presumably Fallout 4, and left Skyrim behind.

Minor updates to Skyrim will still trickle in, but meaty additions like DLC will cease.

"For the last year and a half we've been working on new content for Skyrim, from the game updates, Creation Kit, Steam Workshop, Kinect support, to DLCs," wrote Bethesda Game Studios.

"Parts of our team have also been in pre-production on our next major project, and that game is at the point where it requires the studio's full attention to make it our biggest and best work yet."

Bethesda hasn't announced or mentioned Fallout 4, but has always fully intended to make more than one game - Fallout 3 - in the series (Fallout: New Vegas was made by Obsidian).

Fallout 3, like Skyrim, sold by the bucket load too, so there's every incentive for Bethesda to carry the series on.

There was even a brief tease in January this year when the actor who played Three Dog in Fallout 3 tweeted that fans may not have seen the end of his character.

How long development of Bethesda Game Studios' next game will take remains to be seen. There were two-and-a-half years between Oblivion (March 2006) and Fallout 3 (October 2008), and three years between Fallout 3 and Skyrim (November 2011). Could Bethesda be planning an autumn 2014 launch?

Whichever year Fallout 4 ends up coming out, it will almost certainly be a PC and next-generation console release.


This has been confirmed as meaning that Skyrim DLC has come to an end which is a shame but the thought of a new Fallout game running on more powerful hardware is beyond mouthwatering for me Very Happy

Apparently, this is not related to a new Fallout game (although its inevitable that there will be a new one) - Bethesda have debunked that.

They have released this little teaser trailer and rumour has it that their next title will be a new Wolfenstein game



I wonder if this next project will be current gen title with Fallout being held back till the new wave of consoles arrive....

I am surprised that they have left it at just 2 expansions. Fallout 3 and New Vegas each had 4 a piece.

I don't know why but I really struggled to enjoy New Vegas, loved Fallout 3 though.

I can't see a new Fallout this gen not with the Elder Scrolls online heading out first.....

New Vegas felt a lot more linear but I also found it funnier in places as well. Both great but as much as I liked the Mojave, I think the Capital Wasteland in FO3 had more variety of location and I would say FO3 edged it over the 2

I loved Fallout 3 but havent played New Vegas yet.

I am surprised they have canned any more DLC for Skyrim, didnt Bethesda promise quite detailed and lengthy DLC prior to it's release? along the line of Oblivions Shiviring Isles?

I havent got any of the Skyrim DLC but it doesnt strike me as particularly in depth from what I have read.
