They arent exactly "deep" roleplaying games, they rely more on lore, atmosphere and killing stuff. Bethesda owns ID Software too, so i wouldnt say they "lack experience"..
I didn't see any mention of id software, but based on what they've done recently, I wouldn't feel confident about them handling Stalker either.

Just being an open-world game doesn't mean Bethesda has the ability to make a Stalker title that would feel like a worthy sequel. Stalker's strongest aspect was its atmosphere, and it wasn't remotely similar to anything Bethesda has done.
