Bethesda has The Elder Scrolls. It revived Fallout, Doom and Wolfenstein. And now, it's headed to the stars.
At its E3 2018 press conference Sunday, Bethesda confirmed that the long-rumored title Starfield is indeed happening.
"Starfield is a game we've spent years thinking about and working on," Bethesda director and executive producer Todd Howard told the crowd at E3. As Bethesda itself noted, it's been a long time since it released a brand-new franchise.
So far, no platforms or dates have been attached to Starfield, but for fans waiting for years for an official confirmation, just knowing it's a thing may be enough for now.
