Fallout 4 studio uninterested in "spitting out a Skyrim 2" like many publishers do

Fallout 4 developer Bethesda has said it may or may not host another E3 event in the future, due to the fact it releases games at a slower rate than other companies.


Speaking with The Telegraph during E3 2015 last week (thanks, MCV), VP of marketing and PR Pete Hines said this year "felt like the right time" to host a stage presentation.

“I don’t know if we’ll do one next year. I don’t know if we’ll do one again,” said Hines. "It felt like more than we could accomplish in a booth."

This year, Bethesda had enough titles to warrant a presentation, but that may not be the case in the next few years. The firm used the presentation to showcase Battlecry, Dishonored: Definitive Edition, Dishonored 2, DOOM, Fallout 4, Fallout Shelter and The Elder Scrolls Legends.

“It’s rare to have franchises like the ones we have and to have people joking about “when is Skyrim 2 coming out?” said Hines. “Generally speaking that’s what you’d be getting with another publisher in charge. They’d be spitting out a Skyrim 2 the year after or two years later. That’s just not how we view it.

"We do smaller stuff, we don’t publish to scale, we try to publish to quality."

The next new release from Bethesda will be the highly anticipated Fallout 4, which arrives November 10 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

You can also look forward to Dishonored Definitive Edition on August 25.
