Bethesda, the developers behind Fallout 4, had not revealed any news on its new game until it was revealed at E3 2015. The game had been a secret.
It also did not believe in running a lengthy promotion campaign that is normally associated with such game releases. So what makes Bethesda so different from the rest of the gaming studios?
Jeff Gardiner, lead producer, has revealed the secret of his company's developers -- sanction to do what they love most in their work.
Gardiner, in a newly-released video from the E3 panel, said, "We're still a scrappy team. We're just over 100 people – not nearly as big as some of the other studios," VG247 reported.
"We're able to have great, individual rapport with all our developers. We empower people to do what they love when they come to our work," he said.
"It's 'what can you contribute today?' It's not like we hand them a task sheet. We find surprises all the time in the game and those are for us some of the best things," he added.
