In an interview with Glixel, Todd Howard of Bethesda spoke on the topic of upcoming efforts and internal projects, with the spotlight falling on a select few. Howard, who directed Fallout 4 as well as Fallout Shelter, told Glixel that he couldn’t “talk a lot about the, but [he could] say that they’re bigger than anything we’ve ever done.”
Glixel wrote that the three new projects consisted of “two ‘classically Bethesda’ games and a new mobile game,” according to Howard. He continued, saying that “We [Bethesda] have two larger projects that are more classically the scale of what we do, but even bigger. We overlap the projects so we’re working on them at the same time, but they’re staggered.”
Regarding Fallout Shelter‘s release, Howard told Glixel, “It was a huge surprise to use. Particularly how successful it was.” He noted that “the one takeaway was that the game is somewhat unique, so for the thing we’re doing next we wanted to continue to do that,” emphasis by Glixel. Howard finished his discussion of the mobile game, saying that Bethesda is not looking at what other people are doing to succeed, but are continuing to pursue the game’s “very different style” that makes it “unique in the space.” Should we learn more and have details to share regarding these three projects, we’ll be sure to update you, but until then be sure to stay tuned to Rectify Gaming.
