Bethesda Softworks has announced that The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion
is currently in development for PC and future generation consoles. In development since 2002, Oblivion
is another leap forward in role-playing with its combination of freeform gameplay and cutting-edge graphics. Oblivion
is the sequel to the best-selling, award-winning role-playing game, The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind
, named 2002 RPG and Game of the Year for both PC and Xbox.
?Since starting this project two years ago, our goal has been to create the quintessential RPG of the next generation,? said Todd Howard, executive producer of The Elder Scrolls series. ?We looked back at what we had done with the series, and then looked ahead to what the future of video games could be, and we think this is it.?
