Bethesda isn’t satisfied with killing everybody’s social lives with the release of Fallout 4 last year. No, the company’s domination is only just beginning. Todd Howard, the director behind the game, spoke at DICE to talk about the developer’s future. Howard revealed the studio is currently working on three long-term projects that aren’t coming out anytime soon. However, he teased that they are different from anything Bethesda has done before.
“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 Bethesda-style game. Big and crazy, but in many ways different than things we’ve done before. It’s an exciting time.” — Todd Howard, Director of Fallout 4
A common criticism of Bethesda is that the company routinely creates similar games and consistently refuses to fix the same problems. Bethesda branching out in new directions sounds promising. It’d be cool to see them tackle a large scale project that doesn’t have a map the size of your average European country.
