During QuakeCon this year we got our hands-on two VR experiences (you can read our impressions of Fallout 4 VR and the Doom VR demo by hitting this link), which prompted us to ask Bethesda's vice president of PR and marketing, Pete Hines, whether we might see a virtual reality take on The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.

Although Hines didn't confirm or deny any plans regarding a Skyrim-flavoured VR project, he did reveal that the publisher is looking internally to their studios and working out which of their properties are "a good fit" for virtual reality.

"I think all of our studios continue to look at VR as a possibility for the stuff that they're working on, and where it's a good fit, yeah I think you'll see us announcing some projects in the future," Hines told Gamereactor.

"But it is not a blanket thing where we say 'Ok, VR's the thing we're now doing, so Arkane where's your VR game?'"

Hines continued: "Tango and Machine Games and Bethesda Game Studios; we talk to each studio about what they're working on, what's a good fit, what's not a good fit, and go from there.

"And so beyond the Fallout game we've announced and the Doom demo that we've got down there [on the QuakeCon show floor], what other other projects we do for VR are still TBD."

So no announcements right now, but Bethesda are certainly investigating their options looking forward.
