New Elder Scrolls for 2010?

Bethesda hint at future RPG plans

With Fallout 3 set to arrive in Europe tomorrow, developer Bethesda are perhaps just starting to turn their attentions to the next project they will craft - with one exec suggesting a new Elder Scrolls game might arrive in 2010.

"At the moment we’re not that interested in the Wii. We’re going to stick to PS3, Xbox 360 and PC. We’ll continue to pursue three or four titles a year and go for big titles," he added on the firm's strategy.

Oblivion is of course still regarded by some as the quintessential next-gen console RPG, so this is very big news in some quarters.
