Bethesda Talks Fallout 5, but Don’t Expect it Anytime Soon
Fallout76 continues impressing vaulters all over the world, with Bethesda adding a Halloween event to Spooky Scorched as well as its huge Steel Reign update earlier in the year. Many are curious about what the future holds for the multiplayer RPG even though the studio is focusing on it.
A recent interview with IGN revealed that Bethesda chief Todd Howard suggested that Fallout 5 was being considered with some ideas in contention. The above title is still years away from being released.
Fallout 5 is being discussed, but don’t expect it anytime soon
Howard says that Bethesda is able to give a rough idea of the next episode.
Fallout is a part of our DNA. While we have worked with others from time to time, I cannot predict what will happen next. We have a one pager about Fallout 5 and what we want to accomplish.Advertisement
The Bethesda boss did not specify the details of the one-pager, including ideas, concepts and plot points. Howard stressed that the project was far from complete and is not being properly committed to.
If I could raise my hand to have Fallout 5 out, it would be a great gesture. However, I cannot promise anything or make any promises about the future.
Bethesda Game Studios has been hard at work creating Starfield. The sci-fi epic is due for release next year. It is also working on Elder Scrolls 6. This will take up most of the studio’s time until the rumoured launch date after 2023.
Fallout 5 will likely launch in the second half of the decade, considering the amount of manpower required for these projects. That is assuming Bethesda makes it.
