In an extensive interview with IGN, Bethesda's Todd Howard was quizzed on the possibility of Fallout 5, which he was pretty open to speaking about. He claimed there's a "one-pager" - an initial concept for the game - and it's something the studio "want[s] to do".
"I don't see... Look, Fallout's really part of our DNA here. We've worked with other people from time to time – I can't say say what's gonna happen. You know, we have a one-pager on Fallout 5, what we want to do."
While there's an idea, it sounds as though it's something that's far off. Howard would "like to find a way to accelerate" its inception, but he can't "commit to anything" just yet.
"Again, if I could wave my hand and have [Fallout 5] out – you know, I'd like to find a way to accelerate what we do, but I can't really say today or commit to anything, [like] what's going to happen when."
It's no surprise Fallout 5 is on the cards. It's one of the staples of Bethesda's line-up and we can't imagine they'd want to say goodbye to it anytime soon.
Bethesda has also said it's committed to focusing on single-player games in the future, something many feared the studio would step away from following Fallout 76, but luckily it seems that won't be the case.
