Appearing on the E3 2019 GameSpot Live Show stage, Bethesda boss Todd Howard spoke at a high level about one of the company's upcoming ambitious games announced at E3 2018: Starfield science fiction title.
Howard explained that Bethesda's goal with Starfield – which was Bethesda's first new IP in 25 years – was to make it separate from the wealth of science fiction stories out there in the media.
"There is a lot of science fiction. Actually there is less in the game; there is more in film and television," Howard said. "And for us, that is the world and the IP and the game we have been thinking about for a decade. This is our first new IP in 25 years."
"Our goal is to be unique where he stands with Fallout and Elder Scrolls and Starfield, and that is something in itself. We spend a lot of time on tones. Not only the game flow, but what it feels like so you look at it, & # 39; Starfield & # 39; versus Star Trek or Star Wars. "
Unfortunately, because it's still too early, Howard talked about specific things about Starfield at this stage. The game is passed by E3 2019, which is the same as the other great Bethesda game that will come, The Elder Scrolls VI. Howard has talked about how Starfield and The Elder Scrolls VI might not be released until the next generation of consoles comes out.
Starfield and The Elder Scrolls VI did not appear at Bethesda's E3 2019 briefing this week. The publisher instead revealed the Fallout 76 royale battle mode, while Dishonored Arkane studios announced new games called Deathloop and The Evil Within the studio Tango Gameworks revealed Ghostwire: Tokyo.
