True, the developers are not yet ready to share specific information.


In an interview with IGN, Bethesda Game Studios Director Todd Howard spoke about Fallout, the acclaimed post-apocalyptic RPG series.

According to the head, the franchise will definitely continue to develop. Bethesda already has plans for Fallout 5, but so far they are outlined in a "one-page" version. That is, the team made sketches of the plot, surroundings and basic gameplay ideas, and then put the project aside. The continuation of the post-apocalyptic series will not be released soon: first, Bethesda should release Starfield, and then fully deal with The Elder Scrolls VI. Only then will it be Fallout 5's turn. Todd Howard's studio usually takes four years to create games. Starfield will be released on November 11, 2022, TES VI - around 2025, so a small team is already working on the project. It turns out that Fallout 5 can't be expected until 2028 or even 2029.
