By the way - this is totally unexpected from Bethesda.
I really have to wonder why they would do this - and the cynical me says it's just another way to milk a popular franchise. But the "romantic" me suggests that maybe they're testing themselves. Maybe they're slightly sick of hearing about how they're handling gameplay all wrong, and maybe they're a tiny bit curious if someone like Obsidian can truly outdo them.
To be frank, Bethesda are great at marketing and their engines are typically pretty solid and technically impressive. Combining high production values with genuine game design could result in something classic.
Anyway, just random thoughts.
