Bethesda Games Studios has plans for a Fallout 5, but the development of both Starfield and The Elder Scrolls 6 comes first.

Todd Howard of Bethesda made this known in an extensive interview with IGN. “Fallout is really part of our DNA. We’ve worked with others in the past and I can’t say what’s going to happen. But we have a page that says what we’re going to do with Fallout 5.”

For now, however, fans should not expect the game. “If I could wave my hand (to release the game) I would. I wish we could work faster, but I can’t tell today when what will happen. All I can say is that we have the order of Starfield and then Elder Scrolls 6.”

Starfield is therefore the next game from Bethesda Game Studios to be released. That game is scheduled for release on November 11, 2022. “We’ve wanted to do something like Starfield for a long time and have it set in a new universe. If we didn’t do it now, then when?”

After Starfield, it’s The Elder Scrolls 6, the highly anticipated sequel to Skyrim. Howard also doesn’t think it’s ideal that it takes so long for the game to come out – after all, Skyrim came out in 2011. “Would you plan such a gap between Skyrim and the sequel? I can’t say that’s ideal. (…) Hopefully at The Elder Scrolls 6 we can say that the game was worth the wait.”
