Bethesda Softworks, the folks behind The Elder Scrolls and Fallout, is going to make a Wii game announcement this year — and a "really big Wii game" at that.
In an interview with industry site GamesIndustry, Bethesda Europe's Sean Brennan questioned whether there's a market for 18-year-old-and-up Wii titles. "Is there space in the Wii market for that? I think there is, but again, it' all about finding out how big that is," said Brennan. "Is it 5 percent? If it's five per cent of the market and you can own that space it's worth doing because you can achieve volume." For Bethesda, if you can't own that 5 percent, it's not worth doing.
That being stated, Bethesda is announcing a Wii game sometime this year. Like we previously mentioned, a really big Wii game. According to Brennan, "We are going to make an announcement on a really big Wii game this year, we've got a couple of other things in the pipeline, and it's a format we're really looking at with the right approach."
"We're not going to establish a new range and call if 'My Girly Game Range' or whatever these other companies are doing, it's so me-too and boring," Brennan added. A "My Girly Game Range" from Bethesda too boring? No, Sean, we think you mean, too awesome.
