Softworks boss talks bringing The Elder Scrolls Online to consoles

Bethesda is finding the transition to Xbox One and PS4 relatively easy, the publisher's vice-president Pete Hines has told OXM, as the two consoles are structured much like beefy gaming PCs. That said, developer ZeniMax Online Studios has its work cut out bringing new MMO The Elder Scrolls Online to all three platforms simultaneously.... read more

Bethesda: Xbox One is a "nice, robust machine", but cross-pl

Bethesda's game director and executive producer Todd Howard is working on something "really awesome". What could it be?


In issue 101 there is a very short article that says Bethesda are working on Fallout 4 - are you hinting at something in addition to that or is it Fallout 4? I enjoy Skyrim and Fallout, but Fallout is my preferred game, here's hoping it something along those lines as I'm not sure that the MMO appeals to me, though I'll probably give it a spin.

We're not sure what the "something really awesome" is, I'm afraid. It's unrelated to TESO, though.

Side note - people on other sites describe the headline as "misleading". I'm trying to work out why this is - any help?

Edit - Ah, "but" makes it sound like he's saying Xbox One development rather than "cross-platform work" is a nightmare, doesn't it? Edited.

People seemed to be saying the opposite ie. that working with the XBO was great because it was a robust system, but developing the same game on other platforms was a nightmare...

Either way, well cleared up.

I'm still struggling to work out what the problem is, TBH. N4G in particular has gotten into a right old state about it. Am I just being mind-bogglingly stupid?

I still see no problem with it tbh

what about making it longer and changing it to 'but cross platform play is a "nightmare"'

While I think it was clear in the first instance, if there was any confusion to be had in the title then you've cleared it up by removing the "but." On some occasions I think titles can be unnecessarily grabbing, but on this occasion I don't think that's the case at all. Unfortunately you can't legislate for everything and everyone, Ed.

Well, good to know we're all on the right wavelength round these parts, at least.

Isn't Bethesda always working on something "really awesome"?

They are working on Fallout 4.
