Bethesda Seemingly Teases Two ‘Fallout’ Projects

The popularity of Amazon’s Fallout series has rallied cries for more content set in the wasteland, and Bethesda is seemingly gearing up for the challenge. According to studio director Todd Howard, at least two projects are in the pipeline — or so it appears.

“We look at what we are doing with the franchise and then we say do we still feel good about — I can’t reveal it now — but here is our runway for Fallout as a franchise,” he said on the Kinda Funny Games podcast.

In a continuation of his statement, the industry veteran went on to tease, “When is Season 2 happening. What are we doing on mobile. What are we doing in [Fallout 76]. What are we doing with this thing. What are we doing with this other thing. And when are these landing. And again if I could snap my fingers and have them all be out and ready I would. But the main thing is how do we deliver these at a high quality level. That is always most important.”

While Howard’s wording is all pretty vague, there seems to be the implication that two or even more Fallout entries are currently being worked on. Details are naturally being kept under wraps, with an earlier leak pointing to a potential Fallout 3 Remaster. A formal release date wasn’t stated, but Bethesda is reportedly eyeing the financial year 2024 window, which ends in June.

Accidentally revealed in documents published by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), the remaster was mentioned alongside a remaster of The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion and other works. Fallout 5 is likely to be the other project in the lineup, due to arrive sometime after Elder Scrolls VI.

The Fallout franchise is enjoying revived interest following its success on the small screen. The live-action show has been renewed for a second season, with viewership for the first season hitting 65 million in three weeks. On the gaming front, Fallout 76 saw player numbers on Steam surpass 40,000 for the first time since its release, before scoring one million concurrent players in a single day a few days later. Fans will have to exercise patience for Fallout 5, however, as it’s expected to land only in 2030 or later.
