Todd Howard has stated that in the next installment into the Elder Scrolls franchise, Skyrim, there will be an unlimited number of dragons present throughout the campaign.
Speaking to Gamer.no, Howard, who's the game's director, said "There is an unlimited number of dragons. One of our designers actually put in a random event I encountered, where I ended up being chased by three dragons and I thought 'who the hell did this?'"
He also said that they've waited so long to add it into the Elder Scrolls mythology because "we have never seen a game dealing with dragons as Jurassic Park handles dinosaurs. We wanted to do it properly."
Skyrim is due out on 11.11.11 on PS3, Xbox 360 and PC.
