A new game has been teased for the publisher behind the "The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim" as well as the "Fallout" franchise. According to a report from Gaming Bolt on May 26, Amazon recently put up a pre-order for "Bethesda E3 2014 Dummy ASIN," suggesting that Bethesda Softworks could be making an announcement at next month's Electronic Entertainment Expo. The software product was listed for the 3DS, PC, PS3, PS4, Vita, Wii, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.

The Wii U version was not mentioned, which has become a growing trending for most multiplatform video games. Nintendo has been struggling to sell the high-definition console since it launched in late 2012. Due to the development costs and the lack of software sales, a lot of third-party publishers decided to eliminate working on the Wii U.

The inclusion of the 3DS and Vita platforms could get rid of the possibilities of the tentatively-titled "Fallout 4" or "The Elder Scrolls VI." The open-world action role-playing games created by Bethesda Studios in the past take up a lot of resources. In fact, the PS3, which is more powerful than the 3DS and Vita, has a hard time handling "The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim."

Bethesda Studios developed the two previous mainline installments of the "Elder Scrolls" and "Fallout" series. Although the development team is working on a new project, a representative recently disclosed that it may be too early for an official announcement. The release date window for the mysterious title remains in secrecy as well.

If Bethesda Softworks do show their next game at E3 2014, it will likely be at Microsoft Studios' press conference that is going to be held on June 9. The publisher teamed up with the Xbox console manufacture to released timed-exclusive DLC for the aforesaid "Fallout 3" and "The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim." You can find a screen featuring the fifth numbered title of the "Elder Scrolls" series from the official Facebook page with the image attached near the top of this article.
