A well-known industry insider has most interesting information about the release of a number of Bethesda games released. Although none of this information has been officially confirmed, it comes from Tyler McVicker (formerly Valve News Network), who has so far been noticed several times through correct predictions.
In the latest tweet, he goes straight to the limit when it comes to alleged new games from Bethesda, including a follow-up to Fallout New Vegas:
“I expect Fallout: New Vegas 2 in the second half of this decade. I expect The Elder Scrolls 6 in 2026 or 2027. I expect something that could be close to Fallout 5 in the 2030s. Starfield comes next, and even that needs another year or two.”
Tyler McVicker became known through his YouTube channel Valve News Network, which dealt with inside information about the publisher. Among other things, he leaked details about Half-Life: Alyx – long before they were officially confirmed. Now, McVicker is no longer just concentrating on Valve, but also on other areas of the industry.
Would the leak be realistic?
Tyler McVicker does not elaborate on the origins of his information. In previous leaks he referred to anonymous insiders and is apparently willing to protect the identity of his sources this time as well.
At least we estimate the data mentioned to be quite realistic. It took Bethesda around two to three years to develop major titles like Fallout 4. In addition, there is preproduction. The core production of Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim took around three years.
If you estimate the release of Starfield, as anticipated by McVicker, in 2022 or 2023, an Elder Scrolls 6 should be next in line with 2026 or 27. And a Fallout 5, in whatever form, could appear in the early 2030s.
But where is Fallout New Vegas 2? McVicker says the sequel to one of the best Fallout titles is planned for the period 2025 to 2030. Given the alleged timeline, that would suggest that Obsidian Entertainment would take over the development of Fallout: New Vegas 2 again.
That fits well with the fact that both Bethesda and Obsidian are now owned by Microsoft. The two studios could plan a new cooperation under the new patronage.
We would like to remind you that none of this information has been officially confirmed. Even if they prove correct for the moment, there is no assurance that Bethesda will stick with this plan going forward. But the rumors are always exciting.
