Leaked Microsoft documents reveal unannounced Bethesda games, including a remastered version of Oblivion and Fallout 3.
Leaked Bethesda titles in Microsoft documents include a remastered version of Oblivion and other projects.
In recently leaked documents, several unannounced Bethesda games have been revealed, including a remastered version of Oblivion and Fallout 3. These documents, apparently accidentally published as part of the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) lawsuit against Microsoft over the acquisition from Activision Blizzard, show a chart drawn in July 2020, before Microsoft acquired Bethesda’s parent company, ZeniMax Media, in March 2021.
The release dates in these documents are outdated, as some games, such as Starfield, have experienced significant delays, and MachineGames’ Indiana Jones game has not yet been released. Additionally, some of the games mentioned may have been cancelled.
However, these documents (Courtesy of IGN) give us an idea of the launch and titles that Bethesda was working on until three years ago.
Year 2022: Oblivion Remaster, Indiana Jones Game.
Year 2023: Doom Year Zero and DLC, Project Kestrel, Project Platinum.
Year 2024: The Elder Scrolls 6, Project Kestrel: Expansion, Fallout 3 Remaster, Ghostwire: Tokyo Sequel, Dishonored 3, DOOM Year Zero DLC.
In addition to the titles, the documents also include estimates of gaming revenue. For example, Starfield is expected to generate $900 million in revenue, although it’s important to note that this forecast is outdated. The Elder Scrolls 6 is also estimated to generate $1 billion in the fiscal year it is released.
Recently, it was revealed that The Elder Scrolls 6 will be exclusive to Xbox and PC, and is not expected to release until 2026 at the earliest.
