Bethesda Softworks and Splash Damage

Bethesda Softworks announces a partnership with Splash Damage, who have previously partnered with id Software, saying details about the brand new project they are collaborating on will be revealed over the next few months:
May 22, 2008 (Rockville, MD) – Bethesda Softworks®, a ZeniMax Media company, announced today a long-term development partnership with the award-winning U.K. studio, Splash Damage™.

Splash Damage has been recognized by the industry for the quality of its titles and particularly for its skill in creating cutting-edge multiplayer games. The studio has received numerous accolades and awards for Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory™, including Game of the Year nods from GameSpy, IGN, and PC Format. Their latest game, Enemy Territory: QUAKE Wars™, won over 80 Editors’ Choice, E3, Most Wanted, and Game of the Year awards and nominations.

Bethesda Softworks continues to expand its development and publishing reach, with investments in a library of AAA titles and the opening of new offices in Europe and Japan in the past year. Best known for its 2006 Game of the Year, The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion®, Bethesda has in development a number of compelling titles, including the highly-anticipated Fallout® 3 due in Fall 2008.

“Bethesda Softworks has repeatedly been responsible for outstanding games as both publisher and developer.” said Paul Wedgwood, Owner and Creative Director of Splash Damage. “Both of our studios share a passion for creating great games, and we’re confident that this partnership will result in even greater experiences for gamers.

Still impressed Bethesda would attempt Fallout, given the unparalleled hostility in most Fallout fans.

Because let's face it... all the fans really want is Fallout 1 in a new box.

I don't think the fans are looking for Fallout 1 in a new box. They do want a sequel that will stay true to 1 & 2's style of play, humour, RPG system, and ability to really play through in a number of different ways.

The hostility is there because that doesn't appear to be happening.

I've played every Elder Scrolls game since Arena. While most are good (and some mediocre), they don't come close to the first 2 Fallout games (in my "unpaid" opinion of course ).

I hope they make FO3 an epic game, but I remain skeptical. Prove me wrong Bethesda!
