It’s going to be ‘a while’ before we hear anything about Fallout 4

Posted on February 18, 2014 AT 07:22am

Bethesda game director Todd Howard has stated that “it’s gonna be a while” before we hear about Bethesda’s next game announcement.

When Rock Paper Shotgun asked Howard about the possibility of a Fallout announcement happening soon, he replied: “We don’t [have a timeframe for our next game announcement], but I think it’s gonna be a while.

“We’ve gotten fairly used to all the questions and curiosity over the years,” he added. “Everyone wants information. Right now, we’re just trying to figure out which of our ideas are going to stick and finding an appropriate time to talk about it.”

Howard also mentioned the fake ARG that appeared towards the end of last year: “The ARG was very, very well done,” he said. “It’s a testament to our fans. And they’re doing that stuff and making mods. The stuff they do, we often look at and go, ‘Well, why don’t we just do that? That’s really great.’”

He concluded by stating that the PC has made a comeback and is very much a main focus of the team: “PC is resurgent,” enthused Howard. “Skyrim did better than we’ve ever done on PC by a large, large number. And that’s where the mods are. That feeds the game for a long time. And it’s exciting that the new consoles are very PC-like. That opens up avenues for us going forward to do things that we’ve wanted to do in the past. There are kind of random ideas we’re working on right now, and it’s like, ‘Wow, I think there’s potential here to do some really cool stuff.’”
