In truth it’s the lengthy, scaled tail of Skyrim that’s impressed Bethesda’s method to its sequel.
“People are still playing Skyrim, it’s still one of the best-selling games,” Howard told IGN. “I know people joke about it online, but it’s one of the best-selling games on Switch. Anything we put it out on, it becomes a hit game. And they love it, it’s almost infinitely playable, all of the mods and everything like that.”
Skyrim has been out for eight years, and Bethesda Game Studios has launched two big RPGs within the Fallout universe since – however urge for food for sweetrolls, and The Elder Scrolls normally, is insatiable.
“It lets us know going into Elder Scrolls 6 that this is a game we need to design for people to play for a decade at least,” Howard mentioned. “At least.”
We’ll have to stay with Skyrim for a protracted whereas but. Bethesda Game Studios’ present venture is sci-fi RPG Starfield, as a result of Howard and co. consider “this is the time” for it.
