Pete Hines: Bethesda’s “mature” Wii game is Wheelspin

Thursday, 20th August 2009 19:30 GMT By Nathan Grayson


Remember when, back in May, Bethesda Europe managing director Sean Brennan lamented about the Wii’s dry-as-a-desert pool of “mature” games? Well, for those who don’t, he also teased the “really big” announcement of a mature Wii game from Bethesda.

VG247 asked Bethesda VP Pete Hines for clarification concerning that title, and here’s what he told us:

“[Sean] was referring to the Wheelspin Wii game Bethesda is publishing in Europe (only) and that is being shown in our booth at GamesCom this week.”

Wheelspin is — if the title didn’t give it away — a racing game. Its goal, in addition to going really, really fast, is to “push the hardware further than any other Wii racing game to date.”

It’s out this autumn, if you’re interested.

    So they aren’t working on a Wii game, just publishing one?

    I figured that this was the case. Bethesda always moves forward with their technology, I couldnt imagine them stepping back to make a wii game.
    I imagine the next Elder Scrolls will be a higher tech level than the Fallout 3-Oblivion Gamebryo. I wonder if they will use Gamebryo next time, or the ID technology, or a mixture of both?
