Not much is known about the anticipated title, but it is a single player RPG

Bethesda Game Studios launches first new franchise in 25 years: Starfield

At its E3 conference, Bethesda Game Studios’ Todd Howard took to the stage to announce that the team are working on a new single-player RPG in an entirely new genre: Starfield.

"Starfield is a game that we have spent years thinking about and working on," said Howard.

News that Bethesda Game Studios is working on a new franchise – which largely involves a new chunk of world and lore – has captured the imagination, and it’s also Bethesda Game Studio’s first new franchise in 25 years.

This news capped off the end of Bethesda’s conference, appearing as a "yes, we’re making it so please stop asking" announcement, as the game itself is still at least a year away. The title has been rumoured ever since Bethesda Game Studios’ parent company Zenimax filed for Starfield as a trademark in 2013. 

Bethesda Game Studios has been bouncing between Fallout and Elder Scrolls games for a long time, so the fact that they’re working on Starfield is exciting. Here’s a trailer. 

In addition, Bethesda Game Studios also announced they were working on another new game, The Elder Scrolls VI. No subtitle or setting information yet, but it’s coming, so… please stop asking, I guess.
