Todd Howard on Starfield

Bethesda Game Studios announced Starfield, their upcoming futuristic single-player game, during this year's E3 with a short teaser trailer. And if you'd like to learn a bit more about this mysterious new Bethesda IP, you should check out this Eurogamer interview with Todd Howard where he talks about Starfield's next-gen nature. Check it out:

"That to us means two things," Todd Howard told me. "It does mean hardware and it does mean software on our side, and it also means gameplay - what does the next generation of epic single-player RPGs feel like to us?

"What systems we put it out on - what's the hardware requirements - is still to be determined. We're pushing it; we're thinking very, very far in future so we're building something that will handle next-generation hardware. That's what we're building on right now, that's where our mind is, but that doesn't mean it wouldn't exist on the current systems as well."

Todd Howard specified Starfield was a single-player game but will it be a Bethesda Game Studios game in the way Fallout and The Elder Scrolls are?

"I don't want to say yes or no to that because I don't know what that means to you or whoever's going to read that," he said. "It's different, but if you sit down and play it you would recognise it as something we made if that makes sense? It has our DNA in it. It has things that we like."
