Bethesda Game Studios has created a fancy new game engine for the upcoming Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. Environments are detailed, weather effects consist of more than just fog, and characters no longer look like melted waxworks. Now it appears that the team is keen to take advantage of its technological investment in future releases. In an interview with vg247, Bethesda’s Peter Hines confirmed the developer-publisher’s plans to utilize the Skyrim engine in future titles, just as they did with their Oblivion engine.
“Yeah, I mean obviously, whatever Bethesda Game Studios works on after Skyrim will take advantage of the tech that they have developed […]
“But what that next product is or what it’s going to be? Everybody’s gonna have to wait and see. Right now, it’s been used for Skyrim and that’s what our focus is on. We aren’t saying what they’re going to work on next.”
Fallout 4, anyone?
