Bethesda Game Studios Unlikely To Outsource Development In Future



Bethesda Softworks

With the re-invigoration of the Fallout series coming via Fallout 76, studio Director Todd Howard has been steadfast in calming rumours that Bethesda Game Studios will not outsource the development of potential future spin-offs.

Fallout: New Vegas, developed by Obsidian Entertainment, was a critical success, with the project being warmly received by modern Fallout fans. With the relatively quick turnaround for 76, fans began to speculate whether Bethesda would follow a similar pattern for the next series instalment, which Howard denied:

“I wouldn’t say never. [But] now that our company is so big, it’s always better to keep stuff internal […] it becomes less likely, but I could never say never. I thought the Obsidian guys did a fabulous job.”

With Bethesda’s titanic scale and developmental depth, the studio is unlikely to outsource any work for major projects. Compared to 2010, when New Vegas released, the studio is much larger, which mitigates the need of outside influence.

Howard also brought up and denied the possibility of a Fallout 1 remaster. In Howard’s view, as long as the original source material is still playable on modern devices, revision serves little purpose.
