The Elder Scrolls 6 Is Still ‘Years’ Away, Bethesda Says



The Elder Scrolls 6 Is Still ‘Years’ Away, Bethesda Says

News and details of Bethesda’s The Elder Scrolls 6 video game is still “years” away, according to a recent tweet.

Bethesda’s Todd Howard announced The Elder Scrolls 6 at E3 2018, revealing that the game will be released after their next franchise Starfield. Almost two years have passed since then, and we still have not received any information regarding either Starfield or The Elder Scrolls 6.

In a new tweet from Pete Hinds, Bethesda’s Vice President of Public Relations and Marketing, Hines revealed that the game is actually still pretty far off. When asked by a fan on Twitter when we can expect news on the eagerly awaited game, Hines delivered some disappointing news. He replied: “It’s after Starfield, which you pretty much know nothing about. So if you’re coming at me for details now and not years from now, I’m failing to properly manage your expectations.”

Currently, neither games have release dates but we do know that both Starfield and The Elder Scrolls 6 are for “next-gen” consoles. However, a report from IGN suggests that Bethesda has been wrapping up development on Starfield and is hiring for development on The Elder Scrolls 6, although this has not been confirmed.

Last year, Todd Howard confirmed that Bethesda would not speak about either game at E3 2019, telling fans to be “please be patient” and that it’s “going to be a long time” before hearing anything about the games.

More recently, Bethesda the development company confirmed that it would not be holding a digital showcase in June following the cancellation of E3 2020. Peter Hines confirmed the news on Twitter back in April, saying:

“Given the many challenges we’re facing due to the pandemic, we will not host a digital showcase in June. We have lots of exciting things to share about our games and look forward to telling you more in the coming months.”

Although fans responded to the tweet with disappointment, many highlighted that the tweet implies that Bethesda will be sharing information about Starfield and The Elder Scrolls 6 over the coming months. However, it’s likely that we’ll receive information about Starfield before Elder Scrolls 6.

Bethesda’s Upcoming Games

While news that both Starfield and The Elder Scrolls 6 is still many years away is disappointing, Bethesda the game publisher does have two other games that may release sooner.

Deathloop is a first-person action-adventure game developed by Arkane Studios which whisks players away to the lawless land of Blackreef where two assassins face an eternal battle for power.

Another game currently in the works is GhostWire: Tokyo, an action-adventure game with horror elements being developed by Tango Gameworks. Players will be tasked with fighting paranormal enemies to clear the city of all supernatural evil.

Both games were announced at Bethesda’s E3 2019 showcase but no other details have been shared about them. Check back for more information on all of Bethesda’s upcoming releases.
