Bethesda has “two large projects” in the works outside of its Fallout and Elder Scrolls series, but the company has made sure to stress the scope of the games in explaining why they have been mum in announcing them.

Speaking with IGN, Bethesda VP of Public Relations Pete Hines expanded on comments made by Todd Howard, explaining that these two full projects are in development in conjunction with The Elder Scrolls VI.

“[Howard] said for sure that he’s got two other projects,” said Hines,

“I’m just making sure folks understand that doesn’t mean he’s going to spit out a DLC and another DLC and we’re head faking. I need folks to understand that we’re talking about big games like a Skyrim and a Fallout 4 and a Fallout 3 and those don’t just happen.”

Earlier this week during a YouTube Live at E3 stream, Howard revealed that The Elder Scrolls VI is in the very early stages of development and that the two other projects currently on the developers plate will arrive before the next entry in The Elder Scrolls franchise.

Hines reiterated Howards comment, saying Bethesda is “planning on doing [these titles] before they get to an Elder Scrolls 6.”

So as of right now, Bethesda is working on three titles. Two Skyrim-sized projects, and a proper Elder Scrolls title. Sounds like a great time to be a Bethesda fan!

And for those who can’t wait for The Elder Scrolls VI, they can check out the visually updated Skyrim: Special Edition set to arrive for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on October 28. Those lucky enough to own a PC copy and its add-ons can download the upgraded version for free.
