Beth's Next Suprise Title. What Could It Be?
So we know that Bethesda is currently in developemnt with their next big title. I don't think its TES 5 ( although im sure now they are developing that too! ) but instead a redesigned classic as they did with Fallout. So what game from way back when do you think they will update next? My guess is Ultima. I've never played it and dont know much about it but Todd Howard says its like one of his favorite games. What are your thoughts?
Well now wait. You cant tell me you expected Fallout 3, right? I thought for sure ES:5 but got Fallout 3 instead. Its still a great game, but never did i beleive Bethesda would make it.
Sorry but there was a confirmation by Pete Hines, (i think thats the guy), saying they are still strictly single player games. But co-op seems like a slight possibility if they were even to take a single step into a multiplayer approach.
Also I am 99% sure ES:5 has been being developed for quite some time now ( like even before ES:4 ), and it probably will be announced soon, but I would be really suprised if they didn't make another next-gen version of and old game. And Ultima is an old ass game which happens to be one of Todd Howard's favorite games.
Alright, well, whatever. I just posted the link where they said they weren't working on ES5 yet. But if you prefer to make speculation up then whatever.
Bethesda is in a period of growing and aquiring. I think it's likely that they're working on an original IP to broaden their portfolio I wouldn't expect a new ES until the next console generation.
I know Todd Howard said they werent, but then Pete Hines totally said that he didn't say anything at Quake Con. I saw that interview too. Something wierd is going on and i think Todd said something which made fans angry and Hines tried to make things better or whatever. All im saying is i think that a game, other than ES:5, will come out before the new installment of ES. This way we have something to play while they make ES:5 perfect.
Well, no, I think what happened was that Howard said "we have no plans at this time for Elder Scrolls 5" which to anyone with a brain means "we haven't started working on the game yet" but idiot bloggers started reporting as "Bethesda has no plans for further Elder Scrolls games" which makes it sound like, and readers interpreted as, "Bethesda is done with The Elder Scrolls" which is what prompted Hines to say "that's ridiculous. Elder Scrolls makes tons of money. Of course there will be another one but we haven't started it yet."
