Pete Hines took it to Twitter to backtrack from his comment about another Bethesda’s game coming out this year that the team “haven’t told anybody about”, which he made at PAX West. He says now:
I probably just had a concussion from the beating I took online and was rambling. Ignore.
So, Hines says Bethesda hasn’t got any more games planned to launch in 2017 other than the ones officially known about. Do you believe him?
Bethesda Softworks is going to have a real strong year’s ending – the company is planning to release seven games before the end of 2017, including one, which has not been announced yet. The first one to arrive is Dishonored: Death of the Outsider, another entry in the steampunk stealth/action series from Arkane Studios, coming out on September 15 – that’s next week. A month later, on October 13, we will get to play The Evil Within 2, a sequel to Shinji Mikami’s successful survival horror.
October 27 is the date Wolfenstein fans are looking out for, who are eager to play Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus. Later on we will get three VR versions of Bethesda’s previous releases: The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR on November 17, Doom VFR on December 1, and Fallout 4 VR on December 12.
That makes it six – so how do we know about the seventh game? The source of that revelation comes from an interview with Pete Hines from PAX West. In a video posted on YouTube by Tek Syndicate, the PR manager from Bethesda says (time: 2:50) they “have a game coming out this year that [they] haven’t told anybody about”. Do you have any idea what that might be?
