Fallout 5 is still a long way from release, but Bethesda studio director Todd Howard has officially started dropping breadcrumbs about the highly anticipated game, and that means it's time to start shoveling coal into the hype train engine. Here, you'll find everything we've got on the game to date.

Fallout 5 'One-Pager' Confirmed

In an interview with IGN as part of a retrospective on Skyrim's 10th anniversary, Todd Howard said that Bethesda already has a "one-pager" for Fallout 5 that outlines the plans for the series.

A one-pager is an industry term for a high-level document that outlines the broad concept for a game, including ideas about the general plot, mechanics, target audience and other important notes.

Howard also clarified that Bethesda's only firm commitments at the moment were Starfield and The Elder Scrolls 6, with TES6 still years away, so there's no guarantee a new mainline Fallout will be made — but as long as Bethesda stays in business (likely) it seems all but inevitable.
