According to Howard, Bethesda usually makes tweaks to the engine of their games with every release, but with the upcoming Elder Scrolls 6 and Starfield, Howard has revealed that Bethesda has invested heavily into improving it and has stated that they are doing an overhaul to their game engine, calling it the largest they’ve ever had.
Speaking to GamesIndustry.biz, the director was quoted as saying, “There are things we do that we still like, the way we build our worlds, the way people can mod it — these are things I think are fundamentally good about our tech stack. But from rendering to animation to pathing to procedural generation… I don’t want to say everything, but it’s a significant overhaul.”
That being said, as we had previously mentioned, Elder Scrolls 6 will be a long time coming, but if anything, Starfield will be released first and it should give gamers an idea of what they might be able to expect in the future.
