Maybe spilling his mouth a little too soon, Todd Howard has recently let numerous publications know that Bethesda Game Studios has around 7 projects currently in the works.
Speaking to Glixel first, the famed head of the the Elder Scrolls and Fallout development team let it slip that with the company now being far bigger thanks to the continued success of those IPs, they're looking to put out more projects on a more regular basis.
With that, he went on to confirm that the group has 3 unannounced games in the works. While one of these has been confirmed as a follow-up to the success of the Fallout Shelter mobile game - which just recently hit 75 million downloads - two of the titles were hinted at being "more classically" Bethesda-branded. Known for their ambitious open-world titles, it's only safe to imagine that's what we're dealing with here.
Saying: "I can't talk a lot about them, but I can say that they're bigger than anything we've ever done." Todd then moved on to IGN where he suddenly increased the number of in-development titles to 7 - with two of these being the already announced Fallout VR and the Nintendo Switch port of The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim.
Leaving five unannounced titles in the proverbial pipeline, he did mention how these are in varied states of development - meaning any number of these could be kicked to the kerb before ever being announced. But what could they be?
