"The timing of your question, because we just wrapped up Fallout 4, I definitely need a break," he said. "But that's normal. And after that, I just see so many things that we could do. I like to make big games, the team likes to make big games. We have lots of ideas. We plan on taking a break and coming back and finding out where those ideas take us."

Bethesda hasn't moved on from Fallout 4 yet, of course. The team is working on the game's multiple expansions, the first of which arrive in 2016. If history is any indication, it may be quite a while before Bethesda officially moves on to what's next.
Skyrim shipped in November 2011, but Bethesda didn't fully move on to its next game (which we now know was Fallout 4) until April 2013.
