If It’s Up to Todd Howard, Morrowind Will Never be Remastered

Hines: We Can’t Hold Prey/Dishonored/Wolfenstein/TEW to Fallout/Elder Scrolls Sale Standards

Prior to the official announcement of Fallout 76, fans of the Fallout franchise were holding onto hopes of Fallout: New Vegas receiving a sequel, or the oft-rumored Fallout: New Orleans being announced. Developed by Obsidian Entertainment, New Vegas may also be the last Fallout game Bethesda outsources for third party development.

Speaking with The Guardian, Todd Howard, Director at Bethesda Game Studios, spoke a bit about remasters and his overall aversion to them. "I wouldn't say never", Howard says. "[But] now that our company is so big, it's always better to keep stuff internal". In fact, many were disappointed when it was revealed that F:NV developer Obsidian wasn't involved with the tease that led to the reveal of Bethesda's next entry in the Fallout world.

All of time and space awaits our new TARDIS team-and the Doctor has a fresh new pair of eyes to see it all with again. English actress and singer Sharon D Clarke will also join the series in a returning role.

Following on from the huge success of Fallout 3 back in 2008, Bethesda looked to capitalise on the series' rebirth with Fallout: New Vegas, which launched around two years later. He went on to speak more specifically about Morrowind by saying, "I'd rather you play Morrowind the way it was ..."

Another thing Howard is doubtful of is remastered versions of old games. The obvious exception is the recent Skyrim remaster which Howard justifies by saying "We had done some work on it but it was already pretty visually close". "But for something like Morrowind, my personal preference is not to remaster it". Howard reckons Obsidian was top notch with New Vegas, though: "I thought the Obsidian guys did a fabulous job". "I'm happy that you can play Morrowind now on an Xbox One, as it's backwards compatible. I think the age is part of its identity".
