We've known for a few years now that Bethesda Game Studios has two major games in the works – Starfield and The Elder Scrolls VI. As it turns out, BGS has third, unannounced project in the works as well.
Bethesda Game Studios is currently hiring for a new server engineer, who will be joining the company's “experienced team of developers who have a legacy of creating AAA games”.
Interestingly, the job listing states that this role is to “improve systems for an unannounced title”, meaning it is separate from Starfield and The Elder Scrolls 6, which were both announced in 2018. Currently, Bethesda is working to ship Starfield within the next 18 months and after that, the team will begin working on the next Elder Scrolls game.
This particular unannounced project is in the works at Bethesda Game Studios Austin, which is separate from the company's main Maryland studio. Bethesda Austin has been responsible for maintaining Fallout 76 and developing its expansions. With that in mind, the studio could be familiar enough with the IP at this point to begin work on the next Fallout game.
