Don’t Expect Fallout 4 News Anytime Soon
Bethesda Game Studios director Todd Howard, in speaking with RockPaperShotgun, has stated that the company doesn’t plan on announcing its new game for “a while.” “We don’t [have a timeframe for our next game announcement],” Howard said. “But I think it’s gonna be a while.”
Howard acknowledged curious fans out there that are eager to hear about Bethesda’s next big project.
“We’ve gotten fairly used to all the questions and curiosity over the years,” Howard said. “Everyone wants information. Right now, we’re just trying to figure out which of our ideas are going to stick and finding an appropriate time to talk about it.”
RockPaperShotgun claimed that when it mentioned Boston as a possible location for Fallout 4, Howard “clammed up.” This might be due to the leaks and rumors that took over the web in December of last year. But Howard was open for a discussion concerning the PC platform, and what its future might be.
“PC is resurgent,” Howard said. “Skyrim did better than we’ve ever done on PC by a large, large number. And that’s where the mods are. That feeds the game for a long time. And it’s exciting that the new consoles [Xbox One and PlayStation 4] are very PC-like. That opens up avenues for us going forward to do things that we’ve wanted to do in the past. There are kind of random ideas we’re working on right now, and it’s like, ‘Wow, I think there’s potential here to do some really cool stuff.’”
The last Fallout game to be released was Fallout: New Vegas, which was developed by Obsidian. Bethesda released Fallout 3 in 2008, then moved on to develop Skyrim which was released in 2011.
