Todd Howard was at Gamelab this year to receive the Legend award for his contribution to games, and during his time in Barcelona we talked to him about a whole load of stuff, including how he fits into the three-studio operation they've got going on at Bethesda, and whether he's still hands-on with it all.

"I still get pretty hands-on, just not the whole time," he explained. "I'm very involved in the beginning of a project, I'm very involved in the end. In the middle I'm kind of jumping between things, but we overlap the projects. So we have three studios - Maryland, Montreal, and Austin - all with really great people and separate directors at each studio, so it makes things easy for me to jump in and work creatively with the teams, and everybody now is really working well together. There was a period where it was tricky because we grew very quickly, but felt that for games we're doing in the future as well - for Starfield, Elder Scrolls VI, and our mobile things - that we needed to get bigger to pull off some of the things that we had in our heads."

What is your most-anticipated upcoming project from Bethesda?
