After Bethesda‘s conference at E3 earlier yesterday, Pete Hines, Vice President of Public Relations and Marketing at Bethesda confirmed that the studio’s two new upcoming projects are going to a massive undertaking and comparable in size with Fallout and Skyrim, and in sadder news, also explicitly told fans that “you’re not getting an Elder Scrolls 6 for many years.”
Speaking later with IGN’s Jared Petty, Hines said, “he (Todd Howard) said for sure that he’s got two other projects. I’m just making sure folks understand, like, that doesn’t mean he’s going to spit out a DLC and another DLC and we’re head faking. Like, I need folks to understand that we’re talking about big games like a Skyrim and a Fallout 4 and a Fallout 3 and those don’t just happen.”
It’s interesting to note that during February’s DICE Summit, Howard said Bethesda was planning on three longer-term projects. So we’re still holding out on hope that The Elder Scrolls is one of them, alongside its other major projects.
