Rumor: Skyrim, Fallout studio Bethesda acquires
E JUL" 31. 3312 l fif" ANTHONY, AGNELLA
Bethesda refuses to comment as rumors that it' s acquire the 5. . L. K. E. R. franchise
Zenimax, you greedy dog, you: Do you really need three postapocalyptic ‘video game series?
Youve already got RAGE with id and the precious, profitable, and creatively rich Fallout series over
at Bethesda. Do you really need S. T. AL. . R as well? That' s too much open world nuclear
wasteland tor any company. Enough.
With S. TAL. K. E. R .' Shadows or developer GSC Work) Publishing officially off the series
pursuing its own multiplayer postapocalyptic shooter, it' s been up in the air whether or not there
would be another S. TAL. K. E. R game or if someone would attempt to finish the cancelled
S. TAL. K. E. R it Back in April, the rumor was that Bethesda was taking on the series. That rumor
faded into the Internet wasteland like some hardened, gas drifter. Now it' s back
though, desperate tor the wasteland' s most precious resource: Your attention!
Rock. Paper, Shotgun reported on Tuesday afternoon that Librarian marketer Sergey ,
the very same man that broke the news that sec was off of S. TAL. K. E. R it says that Bethesda
has in tact acquired exclusive rights to the S. TAL. K. E. R series.
Bethesda' s official word: "We don' t comment on rumor or speculation-"
No comment" doesn' t necessarily mean the rumor is true, but anything outside of a flat denial
means that at some level the business is involved with the property in question. Bethesda has
made some weighty "no comment" comments in the past. Bethesda VP of marketing Pete Hines
said pack in EDGE while the company' s rights to the Fallout MMO were being contested by Interplay,
We don' t have any comment on the status of another company or our arrangements with them.
We are developing Fallout 3 and when we have information on the game and what we' re up to, we' ll
let folks know. Beyond that, we have no comment." Then earlier this year it came out that Bethesda
was still fighting tor those rights and it won them.
Who will make S. TAL. K. E. R at Bethesda if the company is holdning onto the series rights?
s unnamed source suggests that it will either be Bethesda Game Studios itself or
Obsidian Entertainment, the crew behind Fallout: New Vegas and home of Fallout series veteran
Chris -
Bethesda is expanding rapidly, and the company is hungry tor new properties as by this
fall' s Dishonored. Glibness aside though, it seems perilous tor the company to spend
on yet another postapocalyptic open world franchise. RAGE disappointed at retail
when it came out in 2011. Why would Bethesda demote resources to something in the same milieu
that isn' t a proven winner like Fallout?
Unless it was making a with S. TAL. K. E. R Salivate on that idea, geeks-

I'm just wondering.
How is this a bad thing?
I have yet to see a BAD rpg made by the bethesda crew since Oblivion.

No, but honestly, it has 12 voice actors WITH the DLC, I do think that they should have brought short swords into Oblivion, it was amazing for when it came out, but when you compare it to Morrowind, F3 and Skyrim, it's kind of replacing GREAT gameplay with fancy graphics.

I know, but all i am saying is that in comparison, Oblivion was still below par because Morrowind felt so much bigger and it was 2002
But I digress, my point is that Bethesda focuses on RPG style games, so they probably won't completely destroy the series.

I could never get into Morrowind, which is odd considering I play tons of RPGs. Even now, I'm playing Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne and King's Field IV for the first time and I have Ni No Kuni pre-ordered along with the 2 SMT Digital Devil Saga games coming in the mail (I'm quite new to the SMT series, oddly enough, but already it has to be my favorite RPG series). Anyway, I liked Oblivion (Skyrim not so much) but I just couldn't get passed the fact that you walked so damn slow in Morrowind. I know that's probably a stupid reason to not play a game, but by what you said about it, I'm assuming I should give it another chance?

Not to mention the political system, in Oblivion and Skyrim, you can help everyone (excluding in the civil war)
Morrowind is like New Vegas, where if you help one faction, it's rival with not like you at all.
To the point where you are sent to kill rival faction members.
And for every factions, there is a native and imperial version
Mages Guild - House Telvanni
Fighters Guild - House Redoran
Thieves Guild - House Hlaalu/Commona Tong
Imperial Cult - Tribunal Temple
And then there are the ashlander tribes, and of course the legion and then the Morag Tong assassin guild.

5 majors flaws I have with Morrowind after playing other RPGs
1 - You do move slow and there is no sprint
2 - Everything is text based
3 - The journal is truly unorganized
4 - There is no real fast travel, you can pay for transport, but a lot of quests take palce away from the stations
5 - There is no enemy leveling, and everything is set. So you know that you will find daedric weapons here, here and here, and no where else, I mean, that's how it is with a lot of game, but with Morrowind, everything is set in stone

While those are my 5 major complaints I have 5 praises
1 - The colour scheme, it may seem strange, but if they could have the fluidity of Skyrim or Oblivion, with the Morrowind colour scheme, that would be awesome, it's like walking through a painting.
2 - Everything is unique, in Oblivion, there were a lot of copy-paste dungeons, in this, everything in the map was unique, and had cool names like Ashurchibiji
3 - There are LOTS of enemies, dozens of beasts, completely made up animals and lots of daedra, and all human enemies other than guards, have unique names, all the bandits, all the citizens, everyone has a unique name
4 - While not having fast travel is a bitch a lot of the time in such a truly ENORMOUS map, seriously, It's probably the size of Skyrim, plus Cyrodil, it is fun to have to adventure everywhere and travel as if you were actually in that situation, where you ahve to keep checking your map and journal and figure out where it is without a map marker right off the bat
5 - There are lots of weapons and armour, dozens, if not hundreds, of course there are the basics (Iron, steel, leather, ebony, orcish, daedric, etc.) There are different variations normal leather, netch leather, daedric honour, daedric terror, etc.

All in all, it is one of my favourite games, and I would play it if they brought back an annicersary edition on the next consoles with achievements

Nope, won't happen, this is an acctually pretty old rumor.
The only thing I know is that bitComposer (german publisher of COP) bought the rights from the Strugatsky Brothers (who both dead by now) to make an stalkerlike game.
That's all

They would ruin the entire series, trying to make it so you could climb that mountain over there.
