Starfield is Bethesda's first new game franchise in 25 years

During its E3 2018 conference, Bethesda finally announced a new game that has had the rumor mill abuzz for several years: Starfield. The publisher was exceedingly light on details, leaving us with only a short teaser trailer.

Based on the name and teaser, Starfield is going to be a sci-fi adventure of some sort, with Bethesda describing it as a "space epic." It's also the publisher's first new franchise in 25 years.

There's very little to go on right now, but Bethesda has already built rich and beloved worlds with The Elder Scrolls and Fallout franchises. If it can do the same with Starfield, it may have a hit on its hands for a whole new sci-fi audience. However, only time will tell.
