Bethesda recently told Glixel about the three massive projects in the works. One of them is a mobile game, the upcoming Nintendo Switch port of Skyrim, and the works on Fallout 4 VR.
According to Mic, which is well-known for tracking Bethesda story, the developer's new projects are bigger than anything before, something much bigger than the previous one.The revelation came from a recently conducted interview by Glixel with Bethesda executive producer Todd Howard.
Howard told Glixel that aside from Fallout 4 VR and the upcoming Nintendo Switch port of Skyrim, Bethesda is also working on a new mobile game, and also confirmed game developer Machine Games is working on something new, possibly an iteration of the previously launched mobile hit "Fallout Shelter."

In a recent interview with Glixel, the Bethesda's Todd Howard said that works on "Fallout 4" VR is "going great and as planned. Howard also dropped some details on the challenges of creating a VR version of Fallout 4, suggesting that the interface is working well but there is still some issues left in the locomotion side.

Howard said that this issue is no different with the other technical issues the company faced, but the Bethesda team is working round the clock on a number of possible solutions.Bethesda first announced the plans for "Fallout 4" VR during lats year's big E3 event. Although at that time, Howard hasn't not much information about it, it appears that the planned VR variant is going well.
The Rockville, Maryland-based game studio recently announced plans to launch a "Fallout 4" VR for HTC Vive. While the "Fallout 4 VR" news was indeed exciting many Bethesda fans were worried that it would not be worth it, and with some speculating that Bethesda might cease works after a few months.
However, in a recent interview with Glixel, Bethesda's Todd Howard, has assured the audience and gaming world that the upcoming Fallout 4 VR will be a complete gaming experience that will be comprised of the entire "Fallout 4" game, SegmentNext reported.
Unfortunately, the much-awaited sequel to the Elder Scrolls series, "The Elder Scrolls 6" has not yet entered the active development stage, which also means that TES 6 would not be a priority for now for Bethesda. Bethesda made no further comment about TES 6 release date, not even a hint.
Bethesda is yet to announce the release date for "Fallout 4 VR," which is expected to arrive this year, possibly at the E3 2017 event.
