Bethesda's two upcoming games as big as Skyrim or Fallout

The developers at Bethesda are busy beavers. They've got at least three games in the pipeline, one of which, of course, is The Elder Scrolls VI/6/Six/Revengeance. That's going to be a long way off; however, Bethesda's Todd Howard confirmed the existence of two other projects that we'll likely hear about before TES6 is properly announced.

Now, a few more details about those games have come to light, courtesy, once again, of IGN. Bethesda's Pete Hines reveals that the games are going to be as big as an Elder Scrolls or Fallout, and that they'll be out before Elder Scrolls VI.

In reference to Todd Howard's comments, Hines stated that "I'm just making sure folks understand, like, that doesn’t mean he’s going to spit out a DLC and another DLC and we’re head faking. Like, I need folks to understand that we’re talking about big games like a Skyrim and a Fallout 4 and a Fallout 3 and those don’t just happen".

"The studio has two major projects, two major games that they are planning on doing before they get to an Elder Scrolls 6."


Here are some hopes I've just come up with:

Morrowind 2: Mushroom Harder

The Terminator: Future Shock 2

Another Elder Scrolls Redguard game

Arcanum 2 (bit of a longshot, but why not)

Or something completely new.

What do you reckon/hope Bethesda is working on?

His favourite game worlds—Stalker, Dark Souls, Thief—have an atmosphere you could wallop with a blackjack. He enjoys horror, adventure, puzzle games and RPGs, and played the Japanese version of Final Fantasy VIII with a translated script he printed off from the internet.
