Skyrim creator promises new mobile game

It was five years back when Skyrim was launched and fans can not work out what is taking Elder Scrolls 6 so long to arrive.

So far, a release date has not yet been confirmed by Bethesda Softworks, but with E3 2017 around the corner, fans can surely expect some good news soon.

Speaking with Polygon about a variety of topics, Bethesda's Todd Howard told the website he can not say if the Switch release is the original one or the Special Edition.

Victor of more than 200 Game of the Year Awards, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim reimagines and revolutionizes the open-world fantasy epic, bringing to life a complete virtual world open for you to explore any way you choose. According to Howard, one of these games is a mobile game.

And when asked about the future projects that are now underway in Bethesda?

Video game publisher, Bethesda, is now working on three video game projects.

"I can't talk a lot about them, but I can say that they're bigger than anything we've ever done", he said. But is Nintendo's new console getting 2016's Special Edition or some other form of the game? "They're a bit different", Howard revealed, "but definitely in the wheelhouse that people are used from us". They also suggest that the games might not fall into the Elder Scrolls or Fallout franchises, which is simultaneously exciting and disappointing for Elder Scrolls fans. Bethesda has put up recent updates for "Fallout 4" so the game can run to its optimum condition that PlayStation 4 Pro and PC rigs allow in terms of visuals and animation. "With each of our games we've had successes and failures and if you ask us internally, we have new ideas that we want to explore in the future because we feel like we haven't really cracked it yet the way we think it could be".
