Todd Howard, executive producer at Bethesda Game Studios, has revealed he's not all that keen on remastering 2002's The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind or the original Fallout.

Speaking with The Guardian, Howard, who may very well have a leather jacket that's even cooler than my own, said he's chuffed that the fantasy-RPG is backwards compatible on Xbox One, preferring this method to remastering the game.

He also feels similarly about the original Fallout, saying people can just play it on the PC if they want to relive the game.

'I'm happy that you can play Morrowind now on an Xbox One, as it's backwards compatible. I'm really happy that Microsoft, Sony, Nintendo, and others are making it easier for people to play [older games] as they were played at the time. I actually prefer that over remasters,' said Howard.

 'For Skyrim remastered, we had done some work on it but it was already pretty visually close. But for something like Morrowind, my personal preference is not to remaster it.'

The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind was released on PC and Xbox in 2002, and is considered a fan-favourite. The setting was recently revisited in The Elder Scrolls Online's Morrowind expansion.

Howard previously revealed that it is unlikely an outside studio will make another Fallout game, though credited Obsidian for its work on 2010's Fallout: New Vegas.
