There's a story doing the rounds today that Bethesda has an unannounced game ready to be released before the year is out. Said story is based on an interview with VP of marketing Pete Hines in which he states that the company has a secret project due to launch in 2018.

Naturally, this kind of comment got people talking. What the heck could Bethesda possibly have lined up over the next four months that we don't yet know about? Is it going to pull a huge reveal out of nowhere and then have the game launch a month later? Is it some mobile thing that a PlayStation site wouldn't give two snots about?

As it turns out, it's got nothing planned at all. In a corrective tweet, Hines says that he misspoke: "I probably just had a concussion from the beating I took online and was rambling. Ignore."

That's the end of that, then.
