Bethesda Working on Three Different “Big and Crazy” Projects
Similar in design to Fallout 4 and Elder Scrolls.
Fallout 4 may be receiving new content in this year but Bethesda Softworks has other plans in mind for the future. Director Todd Howard recently spoke at DICE regarding current projects in the works and revealed that the studio had three “big and crazy” games in development. Each title was “different” but very much in the vein of Fallout and The Elder Scrolls.
Howard said that, “We are busier now than we have ever been. We have all the DLC going for Fallout, we are overhauling the Survival Mode, and that’s some of the most fun I’ve ever had when playing the game. It really changes it. It’s harder, but it is more than that, it just makes it different.
“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. Big and crazy, but in many ways different than things we’ve done before. It’s an exciting time.”
It was noted that more than 100 people were on the Fallout 4 team and once the DLC and Creation Kit had been pushed through, there would be more discussion on the new projects. Howard also said the team’s approach of keeping things to itself was difficult but worked out well in the case of Fallout 4 and Skyrim.
