While Bethesda fans still want more details about the studio’s upcoming games, Todd Howard has shed some light on the development of The Elder Scrolls VI and Starfield, which is described as a “NASA-punk” RPG.
Todd Howard opened up about the new games in a brief interview with Telegraph Gaming. He said that Bethesda is still committed to single-player games, as the “vast majority” of the team is now working on Starfield.
The Elder Scrolls VI, which still has no release date, is being developed on Creation Engine 2, the same technology as Starfield. According to Howard, it’s a “new tech base” for the studio’s upcoming projects.
“It’s good to think of The Elder Scrolls VI as still being in a design [phase]… but we’re checking the tech: ‘Is this going to handle the things we want to do in that game?’” Howard said, which means that the game is far from the active phase of development.
Bethesda studio director also said that he is “super-excited” about the upcoming Indiana Jones project developed by MachineGames, which he described as the “best team in the world to pull this game off.” Howard has been trying to find a way to make this game ever since he pitched it to George Lucas in 2009.
With that being said, all three titles are far from release, as Howard still doesn’t provide many details about them. The only thing that can be said for sure is that Bethesda and MachineGames are now working on, at least, three AAA single-player games at once.
