Don't Expect Skyrim Sequel Anytime Soon

Bethesda Game Studios is 100 percent focused on Fallout 4.


With The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim selling 20 million copies, it stands to reason that Bethesda will release another game in the core series sometime down the road. But don't expect that to happen soon.

That's according to Bethesda marketing executive Pete Hines, who told Dualshockers at Gamescom that Bethesda Game Studios is 100 percent focused on Fallout 4 right now.

It will be a “very long time," before the studio starts to talk about their next project after Fallout 4, he said.

For now, Elder Scrolls fans can continue to enjoy Skyrim (hey, did you see that Pixar-like mod recently?) or play The Elder Scrolls Online for PC or console. In addition, Bethesda is working on The Elder Scrolls Legends, a free-to-play card game in the vein of Blizzard Entertainment's Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft.

Fallout 4, which was "basically done" before Bethesda even announced it at E3, launches in November for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
