Bethesda, the studio responsible for recent action RPG Fallout 4, has teased that it is working on three “longer term projects” that are “different than things [they’ve] done before.” Speaking at the DICE Summit in Las Vegas yesterday (18th February), Todd Howard, Executive Producer and Game Director at Bethesda Softworks, revealed that the company is busier than it’s ever been, working on both fallout 4 DLC and the three new mystery projects.
“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,” Howard said (courtesy of VG24/7). “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 Bethesda-style game,” he added. “Big and crazy, but in many ways different than things we’ve done before. It’s an exciting time.”
Howard said that, despite his hints, Bethesda prefers to play its cards close to its chest – “holding back and not talking about” – a strategy he says “played out really well by not talking,” with both Fallout 4 and Skyrim, so expect the company to remain tight-lipped on its new projects for the foreseeable future.
