Bethesda announcing a 'really big Wii game this year'

According to a GamesIndustry.biz interview with Bethesda's Sean Brennan, the company is finally going to pay some real attention to the Wii. "We are going to make an announcement on a really big Wii game this year," Brennan said. "We've got a couple of other things in the pipeline, and it's a format we're really looking at with the right approach." The company has published two Wii games before: Star Trek: Conquest and AMF Bowling World Lanes, both offhandedly mentioned as "minor products."

Brennan then allayed our justified fear that Bethesda would go for the easy money: "We're not going to establish a new range and call it 'My Girly Game Range' or whatever these other companies are doing, it's so me-too and boring." He also claims that Bethesda "[doesn't] like the casual games area as such." Which means that this upcoming Bethesda product will probably be a traditionally Bethesda-like game, right?
