Bethesda is looking forward to making games on the Xbox One. The developer and publisher is getting ready to harness all of that next-gen power, and they’ve already got a few announced titles on the way to Microsoft’s new machine. The Elder Scrolls Online, Wolfenstein: The Order, and The Evil Within have all be confirmed to arrive on the Xbox One.
Recently, Pete Hines sat down with OXM to talk about developing games on the Xbox One, and Hines explained that they finding that the new console allows for “cool stuff” in their games. What kind of cool stuff? Hines didn’t dish many details about unknown variables in the interview. So no, that cool stuff does not mean Fallout 4.
When speaking about the Xbox One, Hines says that it’s “much easier to develop for”. “It’s a nice robust machine that allows to do lots of cool stuff and put more cool things in the game.” Unfortunately, Bethesda hasn’t had much time with the Xbox One. As they get more experienced in dealing with the new machine, things will obviously improve as Bethesda gets more experience in working on the new console. “The further forward we go, the better and better it’s going to be.”
Hopefully they save all that experience for Elder Scrolls VI and Fallout 4. While Bethesda’s games are beloved by many, their massive RPG titles have definitely been known to have a bug or two.
