The live-action adaptation of Fallout has finally landed on Amazon Prime Video and has been receiving mostly positive reviews at launch. Before the series launched on the streaming platform, Bethesda Game Studios director and executive producer Todd Howard commented on potential adaptations for another popular game.

These comments were made during the Fallout red carpet premiere, in which Howard was interviewed by IGN. In light of Fallout hitting Amazon Prime Video on 10th April 2024, one day earlier than its expected release, Howard was asked if there was potential for a live-action adaptation of the Elder Scrolls franchise would be possible.

I don't know. There's nothing in the works. Everybody asks, like, about Elder Scrolls, and I keep saying no also. You never know if someone's going to click. I think this really came out of, 'we think things are aligning to do a high-quality job.' It wasn't forced.

"I can't predict the future, but this has been one of the most enjoyable projects I've ever done, and we're just over the moon, everybody in the studio with seeing it this way," Howard later added.

While Howard has said "no" to the possibility of an Elder Scrolls live-action project, he had commented that he initially "wasn't really feeling" doing a Fallout film or series, alluding that he may change his mind. Currently, Fallout has been rated 8.7/10 based on over 9,900 reviews on IMDb and 93% based on over 70 reviews on Rotten Tomatoes.

In our review for the Fallout series, "Creating an original story with all-new characters was the right move, and makes for a much smoother transition from games to television. It matches the source materials levels on every front, in humor, savagery, and that family connection."
