A number of Bethesda games were revealed to be in the works in the pages of Microsoft's recently leaked documents. Among those leaked projects include unannounced titles like Dishonored 3 and a remaster of Fallout 3.
In mid-2020 as it was in the process of acquiring Bethesda owner ZeniMax, the Xbox maker was shown a list of projects and DLC that would be released from then and up to the 2024 fiscal year. By now, the list is several years old and many of these saw their release dates shuffled around due to the COVID pandemic and individual delays.
The list also contains Microsoft's projected individual revenue forecasts for each listed project. MachineGames' Indiana Jones game was projected to earn a starting revenue of $230 million during 2022's fiscal year, while the Oblivion remaster was projected for $190 million in the same period.
The list covers both console and mobile titles, though the list of mobile projects is considerably smaller. Interestingly, a number of console titles go completely unnamed. One is simply dubbed "Licensed IP Game," and two others are codenamed Project Kestrel (with an expansion also listed) and Project Platinum.
Several titles like Hi-Fi Rush (labeled "Project Hibiki" in the documents) and Starfield have already released, while others have yet to even be announced. Among those in the latter category include a remaster for 2006's Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion and a project dubbed Doom: Year Zero.
Of all the developers Microsoft has acquired in recent years, Bethesda has raised some of the biggest questions. It's only this year that we're truly seeing the results of that acquisition play out with Starfield and Redfall back in May.
