In an interview published today, Bethesda Creative Director Todd Howard revealed the studio’s future plans, explaining after Sheikh Scrolls 6 Come out, it will be the next studio game fallout 5, the next major entry in the company’s post-apocalyptic open-world RPG franchise. However, given how long it takes Bethesda to create these big games, don’t expect any of the RPGs to be released anytime in the near future.
During an interview with IGNHoward explained very clearly and frankly what Bethesda Game Studios would be working on over the next few years. Specifically, the current plan is to conclude year 2023 starfield And start working more on the next entry in the file ancient scrolls seriesAnd the Sheikh Scrolls 6, which Howard clarified is currently in pre-production. Then the studio will focus on repercussions 5.
“yes, Sheikh Scrolls 6 In pre-production,” Howard explained. “And as you know, we’ll do it fallout 5 After that, so our list is full going forward for a while.”

Interestingly, Howard also said that Bethesda Game Studios has a few “other projects” the team looks at “from time to time as well” but he didn’t say what those games are, how big they might be, or where they could fall into the production timeline.
To be clear, this isn’t the first time Howard has spoken out fallout 5. In fact, this isn’t the first time he’s spoken IGN About the next game in the popular RPG series. last year, During a different interview with the outletHoward explained that the studio has a rough idea of what fallout 5 It would be, but he did not elaborate further or share any details about the game.
“DropsIt’s really part of our DNA here,” Howard said IGN In 2021. “We have worked with others [developers] From time to time – I can not say what will happen. You know, we have one page in Fallout 5, what we want to do.”
However, going back to that interview, Howard was less clear about the timeline. Now we know that fallout 5 It will already be released after Sheikh Scrolls 6. This probably means fallout 5 He’ll be out around oh…let’s say, 2035. If you’re lucky.
Sheikh Scrolls 6 It was first officially revealed during E3 2018 with a short teaser, and since then We haven’t heard anything else about the game. The last main line Drops Game, Fallout 4It was released back in 2015.
Howard told IGN today that he wishes they could make these games faster and that, like many of the studio’s biggest fans, he was frustrated about having to wait so many years between each game. But he made it clear that it is part of the process and necessary.
“They’re taking a while, I wish they would come out quicker, I’m already doing it,” Howard admitted. “We’re trying as hard as we can, but we want them to be the best they can be for everyone.”
Now, the real question is will Sheikh Scrolls 6 or fallout 5 Will it launch on PlayStation consoles in the future or will it only be available on Xbox and PC? (I know the answer to that, and Bethesda fans who only play games on PlayStation consoles probably won’t like it…)
