Howard: Bethesda’s Two Large Projects Are “In the Wheelhouse That People Are Used to From Us”

February 20, 2017Written by Jason Dunning


Last year, Bethesda’s Todd Howard revealed that the studio has three longer-term projects in development, two of them are bigger than anything they’ve ever done, and we’ll likely hear about those two games before The Elder Scrolls VI. In a recent interview with Glixel, Howard said the two larger titles are in the wheelhouse of what people expect from them, but they’ll be a bit different:

We’ve got a good number of projects on the go. We’re bigger now and we do want to be putting out more stuff. We have two larger projects that are more classically the scale of what we do, but even bigger. We overlap the projects so we’re working on them at the same time, but they’re staggered. I can’t talk a lot about them, but I can say that they’re bigger than anything we’ve ever done. They’re a bit different, but definitely in the wheelhouse that people are used to from us.

Speaking with IGN, Howard said they have “seven [projects] going” right now, including a new mobile game, Fallout 4 in VR, and Skyrim for Nintendo Switch. “So some of those things are obviously of different scales,” he added.

Howard also spoke with GameSpot, where he revealed that Fallout 4 and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim both still see millions of players each day.

Bethesda will be hosting their E3 2017 press conference on Sunday, June 11.
