Bethesda says it will make 'considerably more noise' in 2013

Skyrim publisher teases new announcements for this year.

Publisher Bethesda is aiming to make "considerably more noise" in 2013 than it did in 2012, the company's vice president of PR and marketing, Pete Hines, has said.

No Caption Provided

Speaking on the OXM podcast, Hines teased upcoming announcements from the publisher alongside its known lineup of The Elder Scrolls Online and DLC for Dishonored.

"Obviously The Elder Scrolls Online is out, and we've got the Dishonored DLC," said Hines, "but we will be announcing new stuff and making some noise, and I think when we get the chance to show you guys what we're up to, that you'll sit up and take notice."

Hines said Bethesda was working with "passionate teams who know what they're doing," but would not go into details.

As for what Bethesda might be looking to show, last week the publisher confirmed that the id Software shooter Doom 4 had been rebooted but was still in development, and many gamers would almost certainly be excited to hear about a follow-up to 2011's The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.

Todd Howard was very proud of how long they were able to keep Skyrim under wraps; he preferred that to a slow drip of things year after year. If they follow that pattern, this is about the window for a Fallout 4 announcement. It also means if they have their way you won't see a single thing about a follow-up to Skyrim for at least two more years.

It has been almost 5 years since Fallout 3. So it's definitely time to at least announce #4. It's gotta be inevitable that it's coming.

Fallout 4?.... why not go back to the writers and team that made Fallout such a good game and made Fallout 3 successful - (but which most of us feel had lots of room for improvement..) Wasteland 2, Project Eternity, Torment Tides .... lots of upcoming games with probably better content and writing than Fallout 3 or Skyrim - but different play style - Haven't heard anything good about Elder Warcraft Scrolls of the World....- its online MMOG....yeaah.... hopefully sarcasm noted

Great another boring RPG without a story horrible combat and the most annoying fps camera.I don't deny that it is a god game franchise and it deserves most of it's success but after Far Cry 3 or Dark Souls The Witcher there is literally no excuse for another sequel that plays and feels like Morowind.

@ViskiJack there's every excuse possible with gaming to have more games that feel and play like morrowind.

@ViskiJack I agree Morrowind was my favorite game at the time, but they need to update it, imagine dark souls combat with elder scrolls open world, sounds great to me. Dragon's Dogma is another awesome take on combat but I think dark souls is closer and would fit the elder scrolls world better. I'm glad there's competition, it breeds improvements.

@Nightrain50 Yes, Dark Souls combat in an Elder Scrolls world would be insanely amazing.

@depman1972 I'm fairly certain Elder Scrolls Online, IS the new Elder Scrolls game. I would love to see Fallout 4 though.

I hope those passionate teams include actual experienced writers. There's just only so much one can take in that department before your eyes finally manage to roll off your head.

In addition to my previous, I also would like to see Fallout 4, but with more characterisation options, a survivalist leaning i.e. having to scrounge items in the world to be able to survive, possibly a housing element like the Hearth fire dlc in Skyrim. More clothing options, weapon options, weapon construction elements, a wider creature dynamic in mobs. And here is a controversial idea for any new IP being discussed or developed, Fallout Online which has been mooted for so long. Well they are doing it with ESO so why not.

This is how it works: Tes game, 2-3 years later Fallout game and then after another 2-3 years Tes game and so on.. I can appreciate that pattern and i hope they stick to it!

Fallout 3 was one of the best games of all time next to Oblivion/Skyrim.

They need to give us Fallout 4!

Well i think it will be a Fallout 4 announcement and if it is maybe it will mean that Bethesda will follow the pattern Fallout then Elder Scrolls then fallout again etc, it would make sense i mean why make a new TES so soon? that way it feels more fresh i think. I for once can't wait for a new Fallout 4 i hope they do some major new stuff maybe a new engine? i mean unless they plan to make a new fallout then start working on the next gen stuff i don't know.

Most likely Fallout 4, I'd imagine. Too early for a new scrolls, and more on scrolls online wouldn't be big news.

The Elder Scrolls Online is the stupidest idea possible in 2013, Elder Scrolls is probably dead as a good video game series after Skyrim. Dishonored was good but a fuckload of content was cut from it, which is shameful.

Fallout 4? I'd rather Obsidian just take over. I don't want casualized bullshit, I want a proper RPG. That's what Fallout was and it shouldn't be Bethesdas right to just disregard what it started as. Fallout 3 was decent but **** it's FALLOUT it's supposed to be so much more then just "Bethesda's Post-Apocalyptic Game".

The gamers of tomorrow are going to eat all the gaming industries corporate shit and it makes me so sad.

And before you go BUT BUT SKYRIM WAS GOOD IT GOT GREAT REVIEWS etc. The entire industry works together to make more money. If reviewers genuinely reviewed games no AAA games would sell well and obviously we can't have that because of how expensive those games are to make. Instead of focusing so much on "expanding technology" they have to bring costs down. We're somehow expanding way too fast compared to the 80's/90's.

Was just talking at length about Fallout 3 and New Vegas and the differences therein.

So I'm all for news about Fallout 4.

Would be great to see Fallout 4 get announced. I just hope Bethesda don't let Obsidian ANYWHERE NEAR IT. They had some good ideas & features, but considering how broken New Vegas was on release, the fact that it took nearly a year to fix and the fact that many bugs are still not fixed should be enough reason for Bethesda to make it themselves. I'm also wondering if TES: Online will be announced for the next-gen consoles. Now that would be something.

@tizmond Didn't have problems on launch with NV on my system. Found it to be equal in crashes to FO3, hence save often, but did have very noticeable enhancements.

@tizmond I thought New Vegas was great, probably better than Fallout 3. New Vegas did a better job with making you feel as if all of your actions were changing the world. Overall, it had a more classic Fallout feel to it.

@tizmond I personally think Obsidian has a more talented team than Bethesda. Sadly I also think that their QA department must be nearly nonexistent.

@Tommy7600 @tizmond Obsidian has only made sequeals in the past, They make good story's and maybe sometimes they made improvemantss like with New Vegas but saying they have a better team is just BS. Dont see obsidian creating a world like TES with great games like Morrowwind, Oblivian, Fallout 3, Skyrim and soon Fallout 4.

@pandae-mail @Tommy7600 @DeKuip @tizmond What we need for fallout 4 is beth handling the the world and obsidian handling the story.

It would be epic on so many levels.

@Tommy7600 @DeKuip @tizmond They are just great teams in very different ways. Obsidian has great writers for story, but Bethesda certainly is better at creating large and detail world. Both their games are glitchy at release though......

@Tommy7600 @DeKuip @tizmond My bad did not know black isle and obsidian are the same teams. But then you prove my point even more those games are ancient and they haven't made a good game by them selves for years.

@DeKuip @Tommy7600 @tizmond You clearly don't know where Obsidian team came from. Type in Interplay Entertainment/Black Isle on google and you'll see this team have created more classics than Bethesda ever will.
