Could Bethesda ever make a Battle Royale game for one of their titles? If they could, would they?
Between PUBG, Fortnite, the upcoming Black Ops 4 and all the spinoffs, knockoffs, etc. there are a lot of Battle Royale games. And it seems like most major publishers are either making one, or are open to making one. But for Pete Hines at Bethesda, he says they’re good making their own games:
“If it’s like ‘Well, these guys did this, so we’re gonna do this,’ I can’t stay awake. ‘Hey, here’s our Battle Royale game!’ No thank you. Not even remotely interested. That’s not who we are as Bethesda; that’s not how we’ve gotten to where we are over the last 30-odd years. And honestly, I think our devs know better than to say ‘Oh, we’re just gonna riff off of something that somebody else is doing.'”
That being said, it’s not impossible, they just need the right thing to make it truly there’s and not just “their version”:
“If it sounds interesting if it’s something the devs are clearly excited about, and it’s something we think is unique and different, that’s trying something new or doing something new, that’s what gets me excited.”
But given that everyone and their mother’s developer are trying to make Battle Royale games to cash it, it’s less than a 1% chance of this happening with Bethesda.
