In a Resetera post published today (September 19), an image appearing to be a “title release schedule” for Microsoft was shared, taken from court documents related to the company’s ongoing Activision Blizzard acquisition.
This includes a remaster for Bethesda Softworks’ role-playing game The Elder Scrolls 4: Oblivion, which was listed as launching in 2022. There’s also a remake for post-apocalyptic shooter Fallout 3 marked down for 2024.
These remasters would come at a time when both Fallout and The Elder Scrolls are going to be without new entries for a while. Bethesda released Starfield this month, and while early development of The Elder Scrolls 6 has started, it’s expected to take a number of years to complete. Fallout fans will be waiting even longer for a new instalment, as Fallout 5 won’t arrive until after The Elder Scrolls 6.
If the release schedule is to be believed, remasters of Fallout 3 and The Elder Scrolls 4: Oblivion were planned to launch when each game turned 16.
Beyond Bethesda’s remasters, the court document also listed a number of planned games that have not been announced by Microsoft. That includes Dishonored 3, a sequel to 2022’s Ghostwire: Tokyo, and a new Doom game.
“We hope with your support to finish the final steps in completing our dream, maybe even beating our own estimation,” shared the mod’s creators.
