Xbox FTC Leak Reveals Older Release Targets Of Upcoming Bethesda Games And DLC

in 2023, some of these releases are probably way off but some on this list are still interesting nonetheless

In the “fallout” of this morning’s FTC Xbox leaks, we looked at what could have been in some leaked release targets for Bethesda’s lineup with dates ranging from the fiscal years 2022 to 2024, according to The Verge.

Now, for a good chunk of these Xbox dates, these releases miss the mark as MachineGames’ Indiana Jones game, an Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion remaster, and a Starfield DLC (if the game had launched on its initial 11/11/21 release presumably) would all be in our hands by now according to this internal listing. With game development, things never work out as initially planned as a lot, if not all, of these releases (minus the Elder Scrolls Online expansions probably) missed the mark for whatever reason, which will lead to a better game overall.

The interesting tidbit is that Elder Scrolls VI was initially slated for a 2024 release; with Bethesda just launching Starfield this month and pre-production on the sixth major Elder Scrolls entry reportedly just wrapping up it might be a lot longer wait for Bethesda fans to get their hands on that one. Some other games listed for 2024 included a Fallout 3 remaster, a Ghostwire: Tokyo sequel, Dishonored 3, and, interestingly, Doom Year Zero DLC. We have the list from the leak down below.

  • Indiana Jones game (FY 2022)
  • Oblivion remaster (FY 2022)
  • Elder Scrolls Online expansion (FY 2022)
  • Starfield DLC (FY 2022)
  • Doom Year Zero & DLC (FY 2023)
  • Project Kestrel (FY 2023)
  • Project Platinum (FY 2023)
  • Elder Scrolls Online expansion (FY 2023)
  • The Elder Scrolls VI (FY 2024)
  • Project Kestral: Expansion (FY 2024)
  • Licensed IP game (FY 2024)
  • Fallout 3 remaster (FY 2024)
  • Elder Scrolls Online expansion (FY 2024)
  • Ghostwire: Tokyo Sequel (FY 2024)
  • Dishonored 3 (FY 2024)
  • Doom Year Zero DLC (FY 2024)

It wasn’t just about software in this Xbox leak, as we got a really good look at Microsoft’s upcoming hardware with its circular refreshed Xbox Series X and new hybrid black and white controller featuring haptic feedback. The court documents revealed that the new console was targeting a late 2024 release, pretty close to the fourth-anniversary date of the Xbox Series consoles.
