For Bethesda, Fallout remained one of the firm’s biggest IPs for roughly two decades now. And this stake in popularity only surged with the most recent television series that aired on Amazon Prime Video. One interview with showrunners for Fallout reveals a total of five seasons is very likely for the TV show after the success of the first 8 episodes alone.

Furthermore, Fallout is expanding on its core medium as well. Via Fallout 76, the game has already welcomed more than 20 million users as of this year. Additionally, the ongoing title continues to face support with new updates periodically. This month, the game faced new content with Skyline Valley – the first-ever map expansion to the 2018 release.

In a new interview, Todd Howard elaborates on the demand for Fallout. And while Bethesda is not shy to taking its time when developing new games, he says Fallout is no exception despite the growing hype for the property. You can view the segment of the interview in the video below:

“For other Fallout games in the future- y’know obviously I can’t talk about those right now, but I would sort of say rushing through those right now or ‘we need to get stuff out’, that is different than the work we are doing in 76. You know, we don’t feel like we need to rush any of that,” Howard says. The Fallout TV show fills a certain niché in terms of the franchise and the story telling; totally get the desire for a new kind of mainline, single-player game.

“And- look those things take time. I don’t think its bad that people miss things.” Howard continues,” we just want to get it right and make sure that everything we’re doing in a franchise whether its Elder Scrolls or Fallout or now Starfield – that those become meaningful moments for everybody that loves these franchises as much as we do.” Redirecting the topic to Fallout 76, Howard goes on to share the title updates remain bottomless.

“We’re going to keep going. That game has never been more popular than it is right now. As we’re talking and we have a great interna roadmap of things that we’re doing for the next several years and we think its going to keep continuing and keep continuing. We think that one of the things you see, y’know, in the industry is that overall people play their games for longer.”
