Speaking at the DICE Summit this week, Todd Howard announced that Bethesda is currently working on three projects…and none of them are related to Fallout 4 or even The Elder Scrolls. They are all “different” from what the studio has done in the past.
Howard went on to say that Fallout 4 remains a priority for the studio, but these new projects should begin to get more traction soon.
“We actually have three kind of longer term projects we’re doing that are all – we’ll talk about them at a future date – but they’re different than anything we’ve done before, while also being a Betehesda-style game,” Howard said at the summit. “Big and crazy, but in many ways different than things we’ve done before. It’s an exciting time.”
Howard added that playing things close to the chest worked well for Fallout 4 which, despite a few leaks, was more or less a complete surprise to fans at E3 this year…and then released five months later, keeping the frothing hype high. This means we likely won’t hear much about these new projects until they’re close to release-ready unless someone gets their hands on another leak.
In the meantime, we’ll just have to contend ourselves with more Fallout 4 DLC which, along with the newly announced hardcore survival mode, is apparently so prolific that Bethesda has actually raised the price of the season pass for the game.
