Bethesda Calls Splash Damage Shooter A "Genre-Breaker" Killer App

Bethesda Softworks is growing, adding titles like Wet and Rogue Warrior to its role-playing game heavy portfolio. It's also expanding on its hype, touting the Splash Damage-developed first-person shooter it's publishing in a big way.

We're going to get our first taste of the game at this year's E3, but Bethesda's European managing director Sean Brennan has already stoked the hype engines for the unannounced title.

"We're not announcing the name yet, but it's a first-person shooter," Brennan tells in a new interview. "That's a product that we believe is a genre-breaker, it's a real killer app. From a quality perspective we're pitching that along the same lines as Fallout 3."

Why the secrecy?

"We've kept it under lock and key, there are so many innovative features in there we don't want to reveal them too soon," Brennan explains. "We've spent significant resources developing the title. And that's a great example of our European work."

    Shooters need some innovation that comes outside of graphics/physics engines so this should be interesting. But to be honest, Wet looks pretty goddamn terrible and as a Fallout fan and an RPG fan.. Fallout 3 wasn't exactly revolutionary.. more like Oblivion redux with guns and no big/medium sized cities.

    Here's hoping Bethesda isn't talking out of its ass for this shooter project.
