An enormous leakage of Bethesda’s prepared release schedule exposes prepare for The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, Fallout 3 remasters, along with follows up like Dishonored 3 and Ghostwire: Tokyo 2.
The source is, exceptionally, a rather innocuous-looking FTC investigational hearing held from another location with Microsoft Gaming CEO Phil Spencer on October 11, 2022. While the records consists of no leakage, the files connected do.
Now, to start with, it is essential to clarify these were internal Bethesda strategies circa 2020. Almost all of the video games have actually been postponed from the price quotes because table, in big part due to the enormous curveball referred to as COVID. Deathloop was prepared for a financial year 2020 release however introduced in September 2021; Starfield, Redfall, and Hi-Fi Rush (here under the codename Project: Hibiki) were prepared for a financial year 2021 launch however ultimately launched in 2023. Even Ghostwire: Tokyo got a minor hold-up from 2021 to March 2022.
Still, hold-ups regardless of, it is not likely that Bethesda’s schedule has actually altered that much in regards to active tasks. With an Oblivion remaster initially prepared for financial year 2022, we might be looking at a 2024 release. Remarkably, the Indiana Jones video game in advancement at MachineGames appears to have actually been arranged for 2022, too. Using the exact same two-year-delay requirements, we might be taking a look at a late 2024 target launch; Executive Producer Todd Howard did state that the video game would be revealed next year.

For 2023, we have a DOOM: Year Zero video game (most likely in advancement at id Software) and 2 unannounced tasks, understood just by their codenames (Kestrel and Platinum). Kestrel is the brand-new video game in advancement at ZeniMax Online Studios, having actually formerly belonged to another historical leakage that happened by means of GeForce NOW.
Financial year 2024 consists of another BGS remaster following Oblivion (Fallout 3), a growth for Project: Kestrel, an unannounced certified IP video game, and 2 huge follows up: Dishonored 3 from Arkane and Ghostwire: Tokyo 2 by Tango Gameworks. The initial FY2024 schedule consists of The Elder Scrolls VI, too.
Needless to state, these video games are not likely to appear prior to 2026. TES VI is infamously now set up for 2026 or later on, according to Microsoft. Provided the significantly prolonged AAA advancement turn-around, we ought to likewise anticipate comparable timeframes for Dishonored 3 and Ghostwire: Tokyo 2 considering that the designers launched their previous video games in September 2021 and March 2022, respectively.
Still, even with all these cautions, it’s an interesting check out what’s originating from Bethesda. It’s likewise not the only leakage from the freshly launched FTC vs. Microsoft files – have a look at Microsoft’s upcoming prepare for Xbox hardware here.
