Bethesda has a “one-pager” for Fallout 5, but it’s still a long way off •

Starfield and Elder Scrolls 6 remain a priority.

As one of Bethesda’s largest and most beloved series, it’s not much of a revelation to hear that the company is already considering a new Fallout episode, but Director of Studies Todd Howard has now talked a bit about a potential new series post, confirming that while an idea exists, Fallout 5 is still a long way off.

Howard spoke to IGN as part of a retrospective for Skyrim’s 10-year anniversary, explaining that the studio currently has a “one-pager” for Fallout 5 that describes what it will do with the series. But the sci-fi adventure Starfield coming out next year and The Elder Scrolls 6 – which was still in its design phase from June this year – remain the studio’s priority, meaning it could take several years before working on the next Fallout begins in earnest.

When asked about the possibility of moving responsibility for a new Fallout to another studio – after all, Fallout: New Vegas developer Obsidian is now also within the Xbox Games Studios family – Howard only offered that “Fallout is really part of our DNA here “.

“We have worked with other people from time to time,” he added. “I can not say what will happen … if I could wave my hand and have [Fallout 5] out, you know, I want to find a way to speed up what we do, but I can not really say today or commit to anything what’s going to happen when other than our cadence is Starfield then Elder Scrolls 6 “.

Meanwhile, of course, Fallout fans have the opportunity to dive into Fallout 76 – Bethesda’s troubled and rather divisive online multiplayer thanks to the post-apocalyptic series – which still manages to make headlines thanks in large part to a hugely dedicated and creative player base. Recently, for example, a theater group staged and streamed a 40-minute production of Macbeth live in the play, staged at a purpose-built venue after Shakespeare’s Globe.
