Straight from the horse’s mouth.
Just excuse me as I roll through to burst a bubble for Fallout fans, because what I’m saying shouldn’t surprise anybody. Pete Hines, the public face of Bethesda, recently said that he’s “not going to GDC 2015”, which of course points towards the lack of a Bethesda appearance at the conference.
So yeah, we all kind of knew that he was going to say that long before he actually had to say it. And not too surprisingly, when asked how many games Bethesda Game Studios have in production, he said “I am not providing any info or hints of any kind until we are ready to talk about what they are working on”.
Is it disappointing? Not not really, it just seems like another bump in the road of Bethesda’s recently increasingly rocky road. Let’s not forget that, as a vast swathe of us predicted, ESO is going subscription free post purchase and that Bethesda are still trying to get “Battlecry” out the door.
So if you are hoping for a Fallout 4 announcement at GDC 2015, as we were a couple of weeks ago, be ready for a disappointment as it’s not happening. But Hines did vaguely hinted that they will announce their games when they are ready. I guess we have to keep waiting then.
