There’s speculation that Bethesda is looking for developers for “Fallout 4” or “Elder Scrolls 6”–which have been rumored but not confirmed–after a recent job posting from the company surfaced.
The company is looking to acquire more staff for a “bleeding-edge” RPG, triggering rampant speculation that the move could be for the latest “Fallout” or “Elder Scrolls” installment, reported OXM.
The programmer, the website said, will “join our team that is pushing the bleeding-edge of RPG development for the PC and consoles.” They need to know how to use DirectX 11 and how to program for current consoles.
They also need a designer to “[design] and [document] stories and quests for future next generation products,” which includes “experience with The Elder Scrolls Construction Set or GECK [is] a plus.” GECK stans for the “Garden of Eden Creation Kit” referenced in the “Fallout” franchise, and it’s also the Fallout modding tools.
The firm also needs an executive producer who has “comprehensive knowledge of Action/Adventure/Shooter product genres,” the website said.
There’s been rumors that a new “Fallout” game could be in the works. About a month ago, Kotaku reported that it obtained casting documents of the game
“The casting documents, which I’ve been able to confirm are real, include scripts, character descriptions, and other details about the next Fallout, and although the word Fallout does not appear in these scripts, there are several references to Fallout’s setting and locations,” writes Kotaku’s Jason Schreier in the report.
The game is slated to take place in Massachusetts.
The iconic “war never changes” line will be in the next game but it won’t be read by Ron Perlman. The game’s main character will say it instead, Kotaku reported.
Bethesda, via Twitter, wrote last month: “If you don’t hear it through an official channel like this, assume all rumors and speculation are false.”
There’s been little-to-no news about an “Elder Scrolls” sequel. However, “Elder Scrolls Online” is slated for release April 2014, and closed beta testing is currently underway.
