How much of a Bethesda fan are you? For many online, they are vocal to being introduced to the developer from games such as Fallout 4 or even The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. But, what about its legacy titles that built up these properties? Games such as The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind or Fallout 3 let alone the list of top-down RPGs that came before that.

For fans depending on the platform have missed out on playing said titles. Due to limited backwards compatibility or outright never ported to console. But new claims suggest that there is a new initiative at Bethesda to remaster or even remake some classic entries for the latest hardware. The initial rumor comes from @SkullziTV on Twitter.

In the past, the YouTube has referenced other tangible leaks such as Starfield’s release window. But in this new post, he shares Bethesda is opening ‘Artifact Studios’, a dedicated developer with its sole purpose to rebuild legacy games for remastering or remaking.

While exciting, it should be noted that the user goes on to clarify that the claim is still classified as a rumor. Taking the statement as truth will not make it true and to simply grasp it as conjecture until properly announced. So what could this alleged team’s first project be if it happens to be true after all?

Before, there were claims of an upcoming Fallout: New Vegas project involving Bethesda & Obsidian Entertainment. The rumor appears logical with both being subsidiaries of Xbox now. The project is said to be a sequel, but we have seen confusion from insiders in the past. Other circulating rumors include remakes of Fallout 1 & Fallout 2 with Unreal Engine 5, but that claim surfaced with lesser foundation back in June. You can read the initial report by heading here.

Do you believe Bethesda is opening a new developer to work exclusively on remakes and remasters?
