Bethesda Game Studios, the development team best known for the Elder Scrolls and Fallout series, has revealed that it is working on seven upcoming titles.
Todd Howard, director of Bethesda Game Studios, in an interview with IGN said that the developer has seven projects in the works; two of those projects are the previously announced Fallout 4 VR and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim for the Nintendo Switch.
One of the other projects is a mobile game. Following the success of Fallout Shelter, a mobile game in which players build and manage their own “Vault” as an overseer, Bathesda’s apparent desire to produce another mobile success is understandable. Details as to the game’s contents and title have not been released. However, the likeliest candidate is The Elder Scrolls: Legends, a collectible card game coming to Android, iOS, and OS X. An official release date has not been announced.
Further guesses, unfortunately, are more difficult to make, though at E3 last year, Howard mentioned that the studio is working on three major projects “that are bigger than everything” the developer has done before, one of which is The Elder Scrolls VI, though that title seems to be a bit further down the road. With the recent release of the special edition of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, the next chapter in The Elder Scrolls series may be delayed further. Until Bethesda makes an official announcement, details regarding The Elder Scrolls VI are rumors at best.
Bethesda’s most recent release is Dishonored 2, an action-adventure stealth video game, which hit shelves on November 11, 2016. OnlySP’s DJ Arruda explored the ways in which player agency works in concert with authorial direction in the game in an editorial at the end of last year.
