Todd Howard has already said that Starfield is meant to be played for the long term. This means that there will be updates and DLCs coming up in the foreseeable future for Bethesda’s newest original intellectual property after more than 20 years.
We’ve wondered just how many people are working on fixing and updating Starfield right now, two months after launch.
In a video uploaded by WIRED, Howard revealed the exact number - 250 team members are working on Starfield post-launch.
Howard also told us through the video that there is still a team working on Bethesda’s online multiplayer role-playing game, Fallout 76. It’s also another indication that the game will continue to push out new content in the future.
In the video, Howard also detailed his personal history in developing video games for Bethesda. He gave us a look at now-classic games that were developed on Windows’ predecessor, MS-DOS. The most notable of these is Terminator: Future Shock, as well as The Elder Scrolls Redguard and Daggerfall.
Howard also revealed that Bethesda had run into rough times after the release of Redguard, after which the company decided that focusing on developing one title at a time is the way to go.
This same mentality would permeate into the Console Era, where they took 4 years to develop The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.
At the end of the video, Howard seemed to insinuate that the company will be working on the long-awaited Elder Scrolls VI.
“If we meet again,” he said. “There’ll be an Elder Scrolls VI here.”
Indeed, there might be news on The Elder Scrolls VI in the near future, as leaked documents from the Federal Trade Commission case revealed. There might also be a Fallout 3 remake, but we’ll have to take those news with a grain of salt.
