Bethesda is hard at work on their next big game coming next year: the epic Sci-Fi RPG that recently showed off its first look at gameplay in the Xbox and Bethesda Games Showcase 2022. Since then fans have been asking a lot of questions, which Todd Howard recently answered, but there’s another lingering question: what’s next for Bethesda?
Obviously after Starfield Bethesda will begin work on The Elder Scrolls 6, but beyond that Howard said that they will definitely be returning to the world of nukes and ghouls with Fallout 5. Obviously, Howard did not divulge in any more details other than that, so it’s anyone’s guess what FO5 will actually be about.
“Yes, Elder Scrolls 6 is in pre-production,” Howard said in a recent interview, “and, you know, we’re going to be doing Fallout 5 after that, so our slate’s pretty full going forward for a while. We have some other projects that we look at from time to time as well.”
So Fallout 5 is definitely coming, but not until Elder Scrolls VI finally launches, which itself will probably be a very long time until that comes out anyway. Development time for these titles get longer with each new release, so if Bethesda keeps going at the exact same pace right now it could be 2030 before we see ES6 launch, let alone Fallout V.
