As Kotaku reports, yesterday at the New York Comic Con Todd Howard, Bethesda Softworks' executive producer responsible for Fallout 3 and The Elder Scrolls series, indicated that one of Bethesda's very next projects is an iPhone game.

Howard broke the news during yesterday's "Vs. Mode Live" panel, which included BioShock lead Kevin Levine, Newsweek's N'Gai Croal and MTV's Stephen Totilo.  Croal tweeted the news during the panel.

So are we in for an iPhone version of Bethesda's mobile title The Elder Scrolls Travels?  Or better yet, Fallout Touch?  Stay tuned.  We'll bring more details as we hear them.

    While I do appreciate the idea of developers making in depth games for the iphone/ipod touch. I would much rather play a polished pick up and play game while away from home. They are quicker to get into (and won't be mad if i have to leave the app), usually take up lesser space, puts less battery drain on my iphone, and most importantly won't take FOREVER to backup my iphone because the app isn't 100+ megs!!!

    But if i do anticipate having some downtime while away from home, then I'll carry my ds with me :)

    Hm, Fallout would actually be a really nice iphone game, not as a shooter, but with the V.A.T.S game-system.

    yea the vats would be sick, I think oblivion would be hard to pull off, but I simple, watered down version of fallout would be perfect for $20, but certainly not something like tap and shoot like metal gear solid

    Don't worry about app backups: it doesn't have to back the whole thing up each time. I have some large games and my backups are still near-instant. (Not so when iPhone 2.0 first came out, though!)

    Yeah app backups are a lot smoother now but have you ever tried restoring an iphone with a large backup file? I'm assuming most people only do it when their iphone crashes or isn't functioning properly but I always do it at least once a month to make sure there isn't any unwanted programs running in the background killing the battery. I had this issue about 2 months ago and it took me forever to figure out why my battery was only getting a few hours of standby time!!

    I wonder - A game like Fallout for the iPhone would have too complex controls to get accustomed to. Especially after playing Brothers in Arms, and getting frustrated with the really bad controls, I don't think Fallout for iPhone can be any better.

    Forget about Fallout, just because _that's_ the franchise that Bethesda was recently working on doesn't mean that they wanna keep going at it.

    I myself would love to see a new chapter in the TES Travel series and that's what I'm thinking will happen :)

    ok, Fallout for the ipod touch, sounds like fun, since i just bought it for my xbox 360, just make the graphics on it like 3d world, or better. im going to buy fallout touch if it isnt as disappointing as lego batman! make it like the xbox 360 version, free roam and talk to other people, and a good story!

    The new Fallout doesnt lend itself well to the touch. But Both Fallout 1 and 2 are turnbased with overhead views. I would pay for both of them just being ported over with thier current content.

    I'm guessing it'll be one of the Elderscrolls Travels games, though and isometric Fallout would be great.

    A port of the first two Fallout games would be wonderful!
